What is the component input on the TV
Component input on the TV can significantly improve image quality. This is relevant not only for watching TV shows, but also when using it as one of the components of a home theater.
What is component input used for?
Component input is a three-cable connection:
- one cable is designed to transmit brightness and synchronization signals, it is marked with a circle of yellow-green color and the symbol Y;
- the rest are responsible for the color difference;
- the second one is for the difference in the level of blue color and brightness, therefore it is marked with a round blue sticker and Pb or V symbols;
- the third one is for the difference in the levels of red color and brightness, therefore red circle and Pr or U symbols are used for its marking.
Through this connector to the TV connect DVD-players and satellite receivers. Its bandwidth allows you to convert an analog signal to the corresponding digital format quality:
- interlaced (1080i) - in all television broadcasting systems;
- progressive (1080p) - in the standards of HDTV.
Since devices are connected to this connector for long-term work in tandem with a TV, it is most often located on the rear panel.
Thus, the component input at the expense of differential color and control of brightness and synchronism of this indicator increases the clarity of the picture and its saturation. Additionally, the image quality parameters are affected by the signal conversion methods: via a pixel row or a full set.
