Video Interfaces

Connecting up video gear isn’t difficult, but it’s not entirely simple, either. You can choose among several kinds of video signals, and they vary in the quality they deliver. To keep things more interesting, different signal types often use the same kind of connector, so you can’t just plug a cable into any physically compatible jack and expect things to work. Fortunately, you can master the complications with just a little effort.

Analog I/O

Analog video interfaces fall into three classes: component, Y/C, and composite. You’ll find analog component on both standard-definition and HDTV equipment, though these days HD analog is usually reserved for monitoring purposes, not transfer into and out of FCP. Y/C and composite signals are only found on SDTV gear, or as SDTV outputs on HDTV gear.
