While a composite (RCA) video cable squeezes the entire video signal onto a single wire, an S-video cable has separate conductors for the luminance (brightness) and chrominance (color) signals, resulting in a superior picture. And of course, better quality cables improve picture quality even more over long runs.

Monster builds their 200sv series S-video cables with high-quality materials that deliver images with clarity and accurate color. The multi-stranded copper center conductor and gas-injected dielectric improve signal transfer for a brighter, sharper picture, and the 24k gold-plated contact pins provide a secure, corrosion resistant connection. Dual-layer shielding rejects electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

Product Highlights:

  • length: 1 meter (3.3 ft.)

  • 3.28' (1m) S-video cable
  • "Information to consumers in application of EU WEEE Directive 96/2002" note

Product Research


Overview: Monster 200SV S-video cables transfer "Y" (luminance) and "C" (chrominance) video signals with maximum accuracy for a better picture without ghosting, dot crawl, and other common picture artifacts. A gas-injected dielectric maintains precise 75-ohm impedance for high-velocity signal transfer, regardless of cable bending. Plus, dual-layer shielding rejects interference that can limit frequency response and detail.

24k Gold Contacts: The heavy-duty, gold-plated S-video connector on each end provides a low-loss connection.

O-Ring Rubber Grip: No-slip design allows easy connector handling. Color-coded for easy, error-free hookup.

Multi-stranded Copper Center Conductor: This cable uses all copper stranding for lower loss and more linear bandwidth.

Low Capacitance Design: For the best S-video performance, the "Y" and "C" signals are precisely split, resulting in highly accurate and color balanced video reproduction.

Low-Loss Gas Injected Dielectric: For high-velocity signal transfer, even over long runs or when cable is bent.

75-Ohm Impedance Design: Precise 75-ohm impedance design for optimum video signal strength.

High-Density Dual-Layer Shielding: 100% aluminized Mylar foil shield and high density copper braid for maximum rejection of outside EM and RF interference.

Duraflex Protective Jacket: The Duraflex protective jacket is flexible for easy routing and installation. Additionally, the jacket is resistant to temperature extremes.
