Please use premium quality cables for > 576p component resolutions such as the Component cable at 1.8 Meter Premium 5-RCA Component Video cable / Digital Audio Coaxial Cable - S/PDIF, Digital Coax, Subwoofer
This Cable is for :
Connecting HDPVR, DVD Players, Blu-ray Players or any other device with component video output (3-RCA's / YPbPr) to a LCD supporting Y,Pb,Pr / Component signal inputs.
Component video (Y, Pr, Pb / Y, Cr, Cb) is amongst the best analog methods for transferring crisp, vibrant video from your various sources. It will support high definition up to 1080p and progressive scan signals.
- 3 RCA Video (Y, Pb, Pr) to 3 RCA Video (Y, Pb, Pr)
- Color Coded, Gold Plated, Molded Connectors
- Supports both Y, Pr, Pb and Y, Cr, Cb Color Space Component Signals
- Up to 576p resolution recommended, higher resolution depends on signal quality / strength from source
In a perfect environment where there is no signal interferance issues and all componentry are the same level, component should deliver a comparable signal to HDMI. However, because analog signal like component are suceptible to signal interface, picture quality coloration related to cable quality and degredation due to attenuation over distance, in actual application, the HDMI picture will generally look sharper. Component suffers gradual picture quality degredation as the signal degrades while HDMI remains level and then drops off completely. However, component can be more reliable and resilient over extended lengths. Component is a good back up when HDMI can not be reliably used.
