THE DEFINITION OF S: CinemaQuest "S" video cables include two identical maximum performance coaxial cables, one for the "Y" (black and white) signal and one for the "C" (color information) signal. In single-channel "composite" video, the Y and C signals are combined to run on a single cable. Using S-video avoids the degradation caused by the process of combining and separating the Y and C signals. When available, three-channel Component video (CQ YIQ cables) is better because the Pb and Pr color information is not combined into a single C signal.
THE INGREDIENTS: S-G uses a large 24 AWG Silver-Plated center conductor insulated with Hard Cell Foam (HCF). Silver-Plating greatly improves high frequency performance for a fraction of the cost of solid silver. Nitrogen Injected HCF reduces distortion caused by the insulating material, and helps maintain a stable 75ý. The combination foil and Silver-Plated braid shield provides 100% protection coverage and lower distortion. Gold-Plated connectors are professionally attached with superior Audioquest solder.
