I thought i would start a thread about what we've found to be our preferred source for feeding our plazma's (& crt's). My system is generally configured for component. But last night just for a change i connected a cheap VGA cable configured for RGB to the plazma. It seemed that not only was the image more colourful and accurate (skin tones) it also seemed sharper. It would seem we are led to believe that component is the way to go. My experience in digital broadcasting equipment would suggest that YUV (component) is the easiest and best way to manipulate digital video. As the 'Y' part is the black & white luminance segment of the video where the 'U' & 'V' components hold the colour parts of the video. Manipulating the Colour & luminance channels separeately is far easier than manipulating digitized RGB. Furthermore DVD is recorded YUV therefore decoding the DVD into its purist form YUV would seem the best method. (hence component output dvd players being a selling point) This is Where our display technology differs from the prefered digital video methods. As traditionally our display plazma's & crt's have Three Colour Guns red green and Blue to display the picture. So again it would seem the best signal to supply a display would be RGB as the feeds need no converting, just directly fed to the Gun. Or little charged Plazma's in our case. therefore when we insist on feeding our plazma with the finest raw component signal stripped from DVD, it will then get converted to RGB for the final display and viewing for our Eyes. So who if any have tried both methods RGB & YUV and what did you Prefer ?
