Connecting DVD Player


Component Video input/output were introduced to Home Entertainment devices alongside the venue of

DVD players at the very start of the 21st century. Whereas RF input (antenna) consolidates every aspect

of the audio video signal, composite video separates stereo sound from picture detail, S-Video went

further by separating the luminance (Y) grey scale from the chrominance (C) and finally component video

input ensures individual direct path for all three primary colors (red – green – blue).

Customers choosing to make the best of their Home Entertainment display panel connecting a good

number of peripheral devices to it must make do of the limited number of HDMI input jacks at the rear

and side of the TV unless one such peripheral device happens to be a Home Cinema Sound System.

Component video input jacks prove to be a great alternate to HDMI in benefiting customer an extra

high definition input source.



Make sure cables are connected to correct colors.
