Video signals in which the chrominance and luminance are processed as separate signals (or components). Three color video signals that describe a color image. Typical component systems are RGB, YIQ, 4:2:2 or YUV.
Component Video is the best method of delivering quality video (RGB) in a format that contains all the components of the original image. Composite Video. Composite video is the standard method of connecting video equipment. Composite video combines picture signal, including vertical and horizontal blanking and synchronizing signals.
