Video information
Component video signal
With the component video signal system, the video signal is separated into 
the Y signal for luminance and the P
B
 and P
R
 signals for chrominance. 
Color can be reproduced more faithfully with this system because each of 
these signals is independent. The component signal is also called the “color 
difference signal” because the luminance signal is subtracted from the color 
signal. A monitor with component input jacks is required in order to output 
component signals.
Composite video signal
With the composite video signal system, the video signal comprises the 
three basic elements of a video picture: color, brightness and 
synchronization data. A composite video jack on a video component 
transmits these three elements combined.
Deep Color
Deep Color refers to the use of various color depths in displays, up from the 
24-bit depths in previous versions of the HDMI specification. This extra bit 
depth allows HDTVs and other displays go from millions of colors to 
billions of colors and eliminate on-screen color banding for smooth tonal 
transitions and subtle gradations between colors. The increased contrast 
ratio can represent many times more shades of gray between black and 
white. Also Deep Color increases the number of available colors within the 
boundaries defined by the RGB or YCbCr color space.
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry 
supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. Providing an 
interface between any sources (such as set-top boxes or AV receivers) and 
audio/video monitor (such as digital television), HDMI supports standard, 
enhanced or high-definition video as well as multichannel digital audio 
using a single cable. HDMI transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and 
supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate 
future enhancements and requirements. 
When used in combination with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content 
Protection), HDMI provides a secure audio/video interface that meets the 
security requirements of content providers and system operators. For 
further information on HDMI, visit the HDMI website at 
“http://www.hdmi.org/.”
S-video signal
With the S-video signal system, the video signal normally transmitted using 
a pin cable is separated and transmitted as the Y signal for the luminance 
and the C signal for the chrominance through the S-video cable. Using the 
S-VIDEO jack eliminates video signal transmission loss and allows 
recording and playback of even more beautiful images. 
“x.v.Color”
A color space standard supported by HDMI version 1.3. It is a more 
extensive color space than sRGB, and allows the expression of colors that 
could not be expressed before. While remaining compatible with the color 
gamut of sRGB standards, “x.v.Color” expands the color space, and can 
thus produce more vivid, natural images. It is particularly effective for still 
pictures and computer graphics.
Compatibility of the input and output video signals
Analog-to-HDMI video conversion is performed according to resolution of video signals as shown below. Analog-to-analog video conversion is also possible when “Analog to Analog Conversion” is 
set to “On” (
☞p. 122
).
