21 Types of Video Connectors: From VGA to Mini-DVI

Key Points

  • Video connectors transmit analog or digital data and video signals with some carrying audio in addition to video.
  • There are two main types of video connectors: analog and digital. Digital cables typically having higher quality and less prone to interference.
  • Some popular video connectors include VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI, each with their own specifications and suitability for different devices.

Video connectors come in different variants, each meant for a different type of data and purpose. Knowing the various types of video connectors is important so that you can know which one best suits your device. Always check on the back of your display device to identify the video connectors it supports. In this article, we will cover the 20 different types of video connectors and their uses. Let’s dive in. 

Video Connectors Overview

Video connectors are electrical connectors that transmit analog or digital data and video signals. They may be attached to the end of a cable, included in an electronic device, or used with another device with a video input or output. While some video connectors use a multiconductor cable to transmit video, others use an RF signal and a coax. In fact, they may carry audio in addition to video.

Two Main Video Connectors Distinctions

Video connectors come in many configurations that are suited for different purposes. We can divide them into two main types. Let’s take a look: 

Analogue Video Connection Types

In this type of connection, video is transmitted over an analog video cable using an erratic electronic signal. The transmission uses an undulating wave type, but its simplicity makes it vulnerable to interference. Older cables typically use analog transmission.

There are four types of analog cables:

  • Coaxial: Coaxial cables are the most basic RF cables. Though that is a low-quality transmission by today’s standards, they can transmit video signals up to 350i. Coaxial cables are most responsible for “fuzzy” images. High-frequency electric signals, such as those in phone lines, can be transmitted using coaxial cables. They come with an inner conductor and an outer insulating layer. 
  • Composite: The signal carried by composite cables is 480i, higher than that of coaxial cables, but less than the requirement of most modern devices. However, you should be able to see clearly on an analog TV. 
  • S-video: S-Video signals can also carry 480i signals. However, S-Video cables provide better coloration. They send the color and brightness data separately.
  • Component: Component analog cables have a much higher transmission capacity. They can reach qualities of up to 1080p.

Digital Video Connection Types

Digital cables typically have higher quality than analog cables and transmit data using binary code (1s and 0s). Their dependability derives from the fact that they are less prone to deterioration or interference than competing solutions.

21 Different Types of Video Connectors 

Let us now look at the different types of video connectors.

#1. VGA Connector

VGA connectors, also known as DE-15 analog connectors, are a classic solution mostly used in older computers, such as IBM. The connector grew in popularity in 1999 when it started replacing the 9-pin connector design. We frequently found it on dated desktop computers, projectors, TVs, and other electronic devices. The connector is locked in place by two thumbscrews on the end adapter, which is usually blue and prevents unintentional disconnections. 

While it supports video transmission with resolutions ranging from 640×480 to 2560×1600, it does not support audio transmission. It transmits analog signals. It distorted the transmitted image because the VGA video signal is susceptible to interference from other signals. Therefore, if you want 1920x1080P or lower resolution, we advise you to use the VGA port. 

#2. Apple Display Connector

The Apple Display Connector is made up of power cords, a USB, and both analog and video signals. This type of video connector is, however, only common in older models, with newer models using standard DVI connectors. 

#3. AV Multi

The DP interface links home theater gear, monitors, and PCs with advanced graphics capabilities. We primarily used them for visual-intensive tasks like video editing and gaming. It is also a high-definition display interface standard that transmits data using digital signals while supporting audio and video data streams. One of the primary benefits of DP is that it can transmit to multiple monitors using a single cable and a daisy-chain connection. The number of monitors varies based on the video resolution. The DP connector also includes a locking mechanism to stop unintentional cable disconnections.

#7. DVI

DVI stands for Digital Video Interface. Older monitors, desktop graphics cards, and laptops frequently use the video-only cable type known as DVI. Typically, a DVI cable’s end adapter is white. The connector has two thumb screws that lock it in place to prevent unintentional disconnection and is physically larger than the VGA. The video connector is standard with all computer video cards and it is available in five variants: 

  • DVI-I single link – Supports analog and digital signals and has 18 + 5 pins. 
  • DVI-I dual-link – Has 24+5 pins and supports analog and digital signals. 
  • DVI-D single link – Only supports digital signals and has 18+1 pins. 
  • DVI-D dual-link – Only accepts digital signals and has 24+1 pins.
  • DVI-A – has 12+5 pins and is limited to analog signals.

The output of the Dual Link digital video interface is superior to that of the VGA interface, and it supports resolutions of 2560×1600 at 60Hz and 1920×1080 at 120Hz.

Laptops usually use this connector. It has the same functionality as the standard DP connector, but is smaller. Video, audio, and daisy-chaining are all supported by Mini DP. Though on some Mac models, it does not support audio. It does not transmit audio over the Mini-DP connection on Macs built before 2010. 

A mini-DP connector may produce a different result, even though it physically fits into a Thunderbolt port. By looking for the Thunderbolt icon, you can tell a mini-DP cable apart from a Thunderbolt cable. You also need a mini-DisplayPort to a standard video port cable or adapter to connect to an external monitor because most monitors only have a standard DisplayPort or HDMI port.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Video Connectors

The selection of a cable seems straightforward. However, after picking the appropriate length and color, there are some crucial factors you need to consider if you want to maximize the performance of your connected devices.

The Use of the Connection Cable

The use of the cable must be established as the first and most crucial step. Once this has been determined, it’s time to examine the options available. Is it for a TV, a multimedia projector, an office or gaming monitor, or something else? It would help if you thought about the requirements of the port the cable will be going into in order to get the best experience possible. Plus, it’s critical to consider the monitor’s and graphics card’s limitations when selecting a video cable for a PC monitor.

Compatibility With Your Device

You may have to decide between an HDMI and a DisplayPort cable connecting a modern TV or monitor. High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), which transmits audio and video signals, has long been a standard for PC and television connections. There are three different kinds of HDMI ports available today. 

  • For 4K resolution at 30Hz and 8Gbps, as well as 1080p at 144Hz, HDMI 1.4, also known as High-Speed HDMI, is the preferred choice. 
  • A more immersive visual experience is provided by HDR and a 4K resolution at 60Hz via HDMI 2.0, also known as Premium High-Speed HDMI. 
  • The ultimate in HDMI cable is HDMI 2.1, also known as Ultra-High-Speed HDMI. It provides up to 10K resolution at 120Hz, improved HDR, and variable refresh rates.

Type of Display Port Used by Your Device

Display ports are common on TV and monitors. They allow HD video and audio signal transmissions on PC monitors and TVs. A DisplayPort port, however, provides slightly different port standards from HDMI ports. 

  • Compared to HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 can support up to 4K resolution at 60Hz. 
  • DisplayPort 1.3 is positioned between HDMI 2.0 and 2.1 and offers 4K resolution at a refresh rate of 120Hz. 
  • DisplayPort 1.4 supports HDR and 8K resolutions at a refresh rate of 60Hz. 
  • DisplayPort 2.0 supports 10K at 80Hz with no HDR, 16K resolution at 60Hz, and HDR.

Wrapping Up

The type of video cable you need depends on the purpose of the connection and the type of data you’re transmitting, among others. Video Connectors come in different categories, each with different specifications and suitability. Knowing the different types of video connectors and how to use them is vital before getting one.
