Composite video is the most basic connection between a video signal source (e.g., DVD player, VHS VCR, analog camcorders) and a video display (e.g., analog TV, Digital TV-HDTV set). It consists a single RCA cable.
For the best results, use component video connections if your analog TV or Digital TV-HDTV is capable of accepting these inputs. Unfortunately, few TVs have component video inputs. These inputs are usually available on high-end or newer TVs and Digital TV-HDTV sets.
If component video is not an option, the next alternative should be an S-Video connection.
If that is not available on your TV, then use the composite video connection.
