Video Description

Next we move on to RGA, which is an analog connector used primarily for TVs. RGA connectors are standard composite in yellow) to transfer video and component (red, blue, green) for depth of color delivery over a wider spectrum, or just red and white for delivering audio. RGA tips are color coordinate for consistency in use. The Mini Din 6 is an s-video solely for transmitting small video signals, no audio. The VGA connector is the standard 15pin analog connector also referred to as HDIS, DEIS and DBIS.

the next connector that we want to talk about is going to be moving into the realm of analog. One of our analog connectors are known as an R C. A connector.
00:13
Now these are sea A connectors are traditional TV connectors. When you think of those connectors that you'll see on the side of the TV that are red, red, white, yellow, red, blue, green
00:25
those are our CIA type connectors. And this is just a simple RC A connector here, standard single pin R R C A connectors are going to come in composite as well as components. Now our composite connectors are going to be our simple yellow connector ar r c. A. Connectors are designed the same as faras,
00:45
their shape and their size, so we sometimes may use them interchangeably. But they're color coded in order to help us know which cables we should use to keep things a little bit more organized. When we're
00:58
sending the information through our cables and plugging them into two separate ends, the red and white in R. R. C. A R always used and they're what transfer our audio so red and white transfers audio and we can use composite or component to transfer video
01:11
When we're using composite, it's just one yellow connector. One yellow cable that transfers that video a bit more high definition would be our component cable. Now this these air going to be red, blue and green cables and these air three separate cables, which act together to transfer video
01:30
right off it's a little bit easier, is a little easy to see how
01:34
our red, blue and green connectors
01:36
split the different colors between those three cables. In order to provide a more dynamic range, you can look up and you can see pictures that show the color differences between an exact same image. Pushing through a composite cable versus an image pushing through a component cable. And the images are a bit more dynamic. They have a bit more debt
01:55
to them, and the colors have a bit more death
01:56
to them because they're able to use these different cables. Three different cables, one for red one, the blue one for green in order to get a wider spectrum
02:05
rather than just trying to push all the image. All of the information for the image through one single yellow, one single composite cable. Now remember, yellow doesn't indicate the color, the quote unquote color of the image that's going through that cable. Yellow is just the color coded tip of that cable,
02:23
the same with the red, blue and green. When we referenced red group blue and green,
02:28
we're talking about the color coded tip for that cable. For both of these, we want to remember that we also have a red and a white the transfer audio. But in some cases we may be using a separate audio. We may have a computer with Yellow Composite port and then a 1/8 inch stereo Jack for our sound
02:47
are we may have ah, red, blue and green component
02:50
with a
02:52
with a 1/8 inch stereo port for sound. Or Or we may just use the red and white for audio while using a V G. A or Devi I for our video.
03:02
So just because we have one doesn't mean we're always going to be using the other the other for our audio and video source. Impair. Moving on to another type of analog connector. We have a mini den six, which is a six pin connector easy from the name and this is a connector which
03:22
look similar
03:23
to this. Now this Mini Dent's six connector on Lee transfers video. It doesn't transmit audio. It's a video on Lee Connector, and it
03:34
sometimes is referred to. The cable is referred Thio s video.
03:38
So we'll plug in our
03:39
cable into the mini den six port, and that will be rs video connector and weaken sometime with sometimes. Use that for monitors, sometimes to transmit between, say, a small screen. Ah, small little mobile LCD screen. We don't see these s video don't see s video being used
04:00
quite as often
04:00
with the many different types of new digital connectors that we have, but it is still want to be aware off. Think of the many den six almost like the Yellow composite cable. And we'll just put s video here. If you only have this cable plugged in, you're only getting video. You're not getting any audio moving on to one of our
04:19
king of our analog connectors for computers. Most people know r v g a connector. It's going to be our standard 15 pin connector here three rows of five pins and the V g a is our cable and our connector. He may hear reference as HD 15 D 15 or D B 15 and it is analog.
04:40
You may hear
04:41
any of these in reference to the type of connector that we're using, and these are all used for R V G. A analog. And again, this connector just transmits video.
04:51
It's going to be normally used for analog display screens are analog LCD screens.
