    S-Video is a video output with much better quality than composite (yellow RCA connector), generally not as good as RGB though but often pretty close.
    NOTE: Composite, S-Video and RGB can also be carried via Scart-cables.

    'Coaxial' usually refers to the digital audio output (orange RCA connector) that uses a "digital" cable (75 Ohm impedance). Some DVD players have an optical digital output instead of a coaxial one while some models spot both.
    The digital outputs will stream the audio signal (PCM, DD or DTS) to an AV amp / receiver.
