Quick guide to video cables Cables - what to look for? Know How Below we have listed the most common digital and analogue video cable types found today. When purchasing interconnecting cables for your system there are a number of considerations - check the gauge of the cable and if it meets all the required specifications for that cable type; choose a cable type to optimise the performance of your equipment; good quality cables are always worth the money and will improve your system’s overall performance, but be aware that stylish packaging does not always equal enhanced performance. Most common connector types. Digital connectors HDMI HDMI is the first industry supported all digital audio and video interface and, if the correct adaptor is used, can be used in conjunction with DVI inputs and outputs. DVI Providing the same video standards as HDMI cables, DVI can only carry video even if HDMI/DVI adaptors are used audio will still need to be provided separately. Analogue connectors Component. The best analogue connection for video equipment although will not carry audio. Can support HD resolutions although will not support HDCP. SCART One of the most popular analogue connectors capable of carrying RGB quality video and stereo audio. S-Video Found on some STBs and other equipment, of lesser quality than SCART and will not provide audio. Composite Video This cable provides the lowest quality video signal, and should be avoided if possible. Key considerations Are all of the cables or HD accessories fully compliant? Is your current or new display HD Ready? Installation, equipment connection and planning for future expansion should be considered.
