Video Signals and Connectors

When you capture and output, the type of video signal you use to connect your
equipment is a critical factor that goes into determining the quality of your video.
Video camcorders, decks, and monitors can use different types of signals, depending
on the environment they are intended for. Consumer equipment usually has limited
video signal choices; professional equipment gives you the greatest range of options.
