S-Video is a means to connect a video signal source (e.g., DVD player, S-VHS VCR, digital satellite receiver, Hi-8 camcorder, Digital-8 camcorder, or DV camcorder) and a video display (e.g., analog TV, Digital TV-HDTV set). S-Video offers significantly improved video signal performance over the basic
composite video connection. To use this connection, your TV must have an S-Video input. We recommend using gold-plated connectors to preserve the quality video signal.
For the best results, use component video connections if your analog TV or Digital TV-HDTV is capable of accepting these inputs.
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.
