Definition: The term, Component Video Connection, refers to a video connection in which the separate color and B/W elements of the signal are transfered via separate cables from a source, such as a DVD player, to a video display device, such as a TV or video projector. This connection is represented by three RCA cables -- that have Red, Green, and Blue connection tips. Input and output component video connections may also carry one of the following additional labels:

Y,Pb,Pr

Y,Cb,Cr

For more on the current state and future use for component video connections, refer to my articles: High Definition via Component Video Connection Ends for Blu-ray and Audio and Video Connections That Are Disappearing.
