Audio and Video Connectors

Audio and video connectors are both electrical connectors that are widely used for carrying both audio and video signals.

Video connectors carry only video signals. There are many well-known ones, such as component video aka YPbPr, composite video, DB13W3, DMS-59 (a single connector that can be carrying two VGA and two DVI), Musa (a popular in Britain connector that can be used in both telecommunications and broadcasting), PAL connector (popular in Europe “antenna connector”), S-Video, SDI, VGA connector (one of the D-sub connector type which is standard on most video cards), Mini-VGA (can be found on some laptop computers), 5 BNC Connectors (can be also used for carrying the VGA signal, such as B, G, R, HSync and/or VSync), Digital Visual Interface (a digital connector that is known to be commonly used on PC graphics cards as well as LCD monitors), etc.

Multi-conductor audio connectors are DB25 (used for multi-track recording as well as other multi-channel audio, either digital or analog), DIN and mini-DIN connectors, screw terminal connectors that are widely used for control and audio signals (e.g., "Phoenix connectors", Euroblock "European-style terminal block”, etc.), RCA connectors (used for either digital or analog audio or analog video), “speakon” connectors, etc.

All the mentioned connectors can be always used for creating the needed schemes as well as the digital audio interconnects and interfaces, such as ADAT interface, AES/EBU interface or/and S/PDIF.

The Audio and Video Connectors solution was developed in order to extend the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 diagramming and drawing software’s functionality with the pre-made icons of the connectors and the previously created examples of the schemes that can be always edited in the needed way by adding the most common types of either video or audio connections, or both.

The Audio and Video Connectors solution can be used by any ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 user and especially it can be useful for the electricians, IT and other specialists.


There is 1 library containing 88 vector shapes in the Audio and Video Connectors solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 application by using the Audio and Video Connectors solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Audio and Video Connectors solution is available to all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 diagramming and drawing software.

Example 1: Hook Up Diagram — Stereo Audio/Visual Entertainment System

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 using the “Audio and Video Connectors” Library from the “Audio and Video Connectors” Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows the types of icons and graphics you can use to illustrate your system’s configurations — these are the universally recognized icons for the most common types of jacks and plugs.
