Analog Video Cables

Until the advent of HDMI, most baseband video in the home was run in one or another of the common analog video formats, all of which, in one way or another, are designed to be run in 75 ohm video coaxial cable. We offer a range of products to suit these needs; click on the sub-department below for the type of cable you're looking for.

Component Video Cable:

Also known as YUV, Y/Pb/Pr or Y/Cb/Cr cable, this is a three-coax type cable, with the cable boots and jacks color-coded red/green/blue.

S-Video Cable:

Also known as YC or "S-VHS" cable, this is a miniature coaxial pair, usually in an outer round jacket, run to a 4-pin mini-DIN connecctor.

Composite Video Cable:

This is the most basic baseband video standard, in which all video information is carried on a single coax, usually terminated with RCA connectors or, in the case of professional gear, BNC connectors, usually with the plugs and jacks color-coded yellow.


The various permutations of RGB video involve anywhere from three to five coaxes. In some applications these will be full-sized coaxes, while in other cases they'll be run through a VGA connector.

RF Cable (for satellite dishes, terrestrial antennas and CATV):

This is what most people think of simply as "coax" -- coaxial cable terminated with F (screw-type) connectors.
