Why is my S-Video output black and white?

The reason you get a black and white signal is because your Super Video (s-video) output sends 2 colour groups to your TV, 1 for colour information, the other for brightness and lighting information.

Does S-Video have color?

S-Video (also known as separate video and Y/C) is a signaling standard for standard definition video, typically 480i or 576i. By separating the black-and-white and coloring signals, it achieves better image quality than composite video, but has lower color resolution than component video.

What does S-Video mean on the back of a TV?

S-video (short for Super-video) is an analog video connection standard that transmits electrical signals over wires to represent the original video. If you have an older analog TV or DVD player, you might still have use for an S-video cable.

Is S-Video Scart?

SCART transmits audio as well as video signals. S-Video doesn’t transmit audio signal. It only carries the video signal. And the signal is separated into two, namely, luma and chroma.

Can A S-Video cable be connected to a SCART?

Our Pro S-Video to SCART adapters are guaranteed to provide you with a colour signal. A SCART connector only supports composite video and connecting an s-video cable to a SCART that has an “s-video” receptable will result in a black and white signal.

Can a SCART adapter work with a PAL TV?

The adapter properly mixes the S-Video signals so that you get a COLOUR video signal going into the SCART adapter and COLOUR going to your TV. Our adapter will work with both PAL and NTSC signals.
