Digital component video

A video signal that has been split into two or more components.

Digital component video is a video signal that has been split into two or more components. It is defined by ITU-R BT.601 (formerly CCIR 601) standard and uses the Y'CbCr colorspace. Like its name suggests, it is the digital version of the analog component video; it gets its name from the fact that the video signal has been divided into two or more components which are then carried between devices over multiple conductors. Digital component video is slowly becoming popular in both computer and home-theatre applications. Component video is capable of carrying signals such as 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p, although many TVs do not support 1080p through component video.
