 What is composite video? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
(n.) A type of video signal in which all information—the red, blue, and green signals (and sometimes audio signals as well)—are mixed together.
In contrast, most computers use RGB video, which consists of three separate signals for red, green, and blue.
In general, RGB video produces sharper images than composite video does.

  What is Composite Video?
Composite video is the most common type of video interface for sending or receiving an analog video signal to or from a television set.
Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white.
Composite video is so named because the Y/C signals are compressed and channeled through a single wire to be separated by a "comb filter" inside the television set.

Composite video is also referred to as CVBS, which stands for color, video, blanking, and sync, or composite video baseband signal.
The area of a composite video signal defined as the time between the rising edge of the sync pulse and the start of the color burst.
The area of a composite video waveform between the end of the active video and the leading edge of sync.

 Linux on Obsolete Display's Project Page
Sometimes you cannot find the separate video and sync lines because the video generator IC feeds a composite signal to directly into the video amplifier IC.
(composite video is worse only in color sets because the color information is represented by a color burst which can have noise and accuracy problems).
A b/w composite video to a b/w set is as clear as a direct connection (the sync pulse information does not interfier with the video data).

Together they are called the television composite waveform, more commonly referred to as composite video.
To see the various elements of the composite video signal two special test oscilloscopes are used - the waveform monitor and the vectorscope.
If, however, you are not changing the video signal because you are working with a basic editing system without any additional equipment, then except for degadations caused by generation loss, the colors and luminance of your edited tape should be the same as your source tape.

 What is composite video? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: RCA video, baseband video
- Composite video, also called baseband video or RCA video, is the analog waveform that conveys the image data in a conventional National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) television signal.
Some DVD players and video cassette recorders (VCRs) accommodate composite video input or output through a phono jack, also known as an RCA connector.
In composite video, interference between the chrominance and luminance information is inevitable, and tends to be worst when the signal is weak.

 S-video to composite video
This adapter is useful in cases where your video output device has only S-video output but your signal source accepts only composite video input.
A typical problem that causes fl and white video instead of color is incomatible video standards on the signal source and the receiver.
If your video signal source (for example PC video card TV output) puts out NTSC video but your TV is designed to handle only PAL standard you get usually fl and white image, and with some devices video signal does not sync at all.

 Digital Video Essentials -The Best Picture Quality   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the mid 90’s, when DVD was still off in the future, many in the industry, especially laserdisc supporters, felt that it was impossible to have better picture and sound quality on a 12 cm digital disc than was currently available on a 12 inch analog disc.
What they hadn’t seen was the picture quality difference of component video, which is necessary for MPEG compression to be effective, versus composite video used in the analog world.
Fortunately the HD standard for component video it is the same for all of the variations of the 720 and 1080 line systems.

Hence, S-Video is sometimes called Y/C. The two video signals allow S-Video to have a clearer picture than composite’s single video signal, but not as clear as component’s three video signals.
The composite signal is capable of transmitting standard definition video only, and is frequently seen using the RCA interconnect.
Technically, it is possible for SCART to output high definition video using the RGB video signals, or by outputting a component video signal using the RGB pins.

Before we can discuss the nitty-gritty of the various video connectors that you will find on the back of your DVD player, we need to briefly discuss just what is recorded on a DVD and a little about how it got there in the first place.
It is important to realize that component video output and RGB video output are not the same and are not directly compatible with each other, however, they are easily converted either way using a transcoder.

On one end of the video chain is the camera used to capture the images onto film, magnetic tape, or other media.
On both test patterns and real-life video material, it did an effective though incomplete job of suppressing rainbow- pattern artifacts that remained after the composite video passed through the 2-D adaptive filter in the evaluation board's FLI2000 video decoder.
Pragmatically, though, the best option for dealing with composite video is to not deal with it but instead to always hold the video in a form that separates chrominance and luminance.

 Video connections explained - CNET reviews
Composite video was created as a backward-compatible solution for television's transition from fl and white to color.
It starts broadcasting in the composite-video domain, and even though it is a component-video format, the artifacts associated with composite video still show up in the picture.
Component video improves the picture quality even more by not only separating the color from the fl-and-white portions of the picture but by further splitting the color information into two color-difference signals.
