what is...
COMPOSITE VIDEO
Used by analogue transmitters, this signal combines luminance (brightness), synchronization and chrominance (color) components. It is not ideal because careful filtering is needed to separate the Y/sync and C information (however, note that modern TV's use a comb filter, which does a good job here). Superior pictures can be obtained by using S-video, RGB or component connections.
