A form of component video that separates the signal into luminance (Y) and chrominance (C). Each is carried on its own set of conductors. Synonymous with S-Video. Y/C video is typically carried one of three ways; 1. mini DIN type cables (most commonly referred to as S-Video cables) 2. multi-pin circular bayonet-locking "dub" cables common to professional VTR's. 3. A pair of coaxial cables terminated with BNC connectors, sometimes with a common jacket (snake).
