What are video connectors?

Video devices use a variety of different interfaces. However, most video connector types share the common trait of being easy to connect. Manufacturers of consumer electronics prefer to use simple interfaces that average users can connect and disconnect without having to tighten thumbscrews, or release tabs or latches. This preference can prove challenging to manufacturers who must balance convenience with performance. Projectors and televisions use the widest variety of these connectors. Projectors use specialty connectors that offer both video and control through a single connection.
