Component video - each primary is sent as a separate video signal.
- The primaries can either be RGB or a luminance-chrominance
transformation of them (e.g., YIQ, YUV).
- Best colour reproduction
- Requires more bandwidth and good synchronization of the
- Composite video - colour (chrominance) and luminance
signals are mixed into a single carrier wave. Some interference
between the two signals is inevitable.
- S-Video (Separated video, e.g., in S-VHS) - a compromise
between component analog video and the composite video. It
uses two lines, one for luminance and another for composite chrominance
