The video input adapter can accept television signals in both composite video and S-Video formats. Composite video signals are made up of three separate components, namely, vertical-retrace signals, horizontal-retrace signals, and intensity information. The receiver (television set, TV tuner card, or video input adapter) interprets the nature of these components and combines those, displaying the pictures thus created on the screen. S-Video signals, on the other hand, are made of two components, named chroma (which contains information about colors of the image), and luma (which carries information about the brightness of the image). S-Video signals usually provide much better video quality than composite video signals, but do not carry any information about the audio, which has to be transmitted to the receiver separately.
