General Description
S-Video is one of the high quality methods of transmitting a video signal. S-Video separates the color information (Chrominance) from the brightness information (Luminance), what prevents things like color bleeding and dot crawl, and helps increase clarity and sharpness. To obtain the best quality in video or audio, you want to keep encoding/decoding to a minimum and retain the original signal as much as possible without modification.
The DVD Player works with digital RGB information after it decodes MPEG2 data from DVD media. The VCR works with Composite Video analog information stored on the VHS and sometimes with S-Video in case of SVHS.
When you use a composite hookup, the DVD Player has to encode the RGB information into a single signal - Composite Video. That signal is sent to the recorder, where a device called a Comb Filter separates the composite signal into Chroma and Luma. When you use a S-Video hookup, the DVD Player has to encode the RGB image into two separate signals, Chroma and Luma and this is exactly what the recorder needs. You do not use Comb Filter and this results in a minor loss in reproduction quality. Same also works with SVHS. In that case Chroma and Luma information from SVHS tape is sent by VCR to recorder and again no Comb Filter used. But in case of common VHS, on which the original signal is Composite Video, S-Video has no advantages because original Composite signal has to be separated to Chroma and Luma in any case.
You must also keep in mind that modern DVD Recorders has very effective digital Comb Filters so it is not promised you will see big or even any difference in quality between Composite and S-Video signals.
One more thing the S-Video adapter will give you is ability to have alternate connection option in case your Composite Video path is already in use by another device.
So after You know about the advantages of the S-Video You can decide wether or not to use it in your setup.

  • Lets You use S-Video signal for better Video quality
  • S-Video is not converted to Component Video and stays S-Video all the way
  • S-Video adapter is passive adapter. It has no Video format converter inside. DVD Red and DVD Red PRO also do not convert S-Video signal to Composite Video and back to S-Video. They know how to work with original S-Video and remove protection from it.

  • Provides alternate connection option

You have to use your original S-Video cable that has male plugs to connect it all together. Using the arbitrary long S-Video cable will let you not to be limited in distance between playback and recording devices.
