S-Video (originally called “Super Video” or “S-VHS Video”) is an analog video format that separates a video signal into “luminance” and “chrominance” signals, and transports them over two coaxial cables terminated on a 4-pin mini-DIN connector. It is limited to 480i resolution, does not carry audio, and has generally been replaced by component video, or by digital video such as DVI and HDMI.
