SCART
SCART
(from Syndicat des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radiorécepteurs et Téléviseurs, "Radio and Television Receiver Manufacturers' Association") is a French-originated standard and associated 21-pin connector for connecting audio-visual (AV) equipment. It is also known as Péritel (or Peritelevision) (especially in France), 21-pin Euro SCART
SCART
(Sharp's marketing term in Asia), Euroconector (in Spain),[1] EuroAV or EXT. In the United States, another name is EIA Multiport (an EIA interface). In Europe, SCART
SCART
used to be the most common method of connecting AV equipment, and was a standard connector for such devices; it was far less common elsewhere. As it was designed to carry analog standard-definition content, SCART
SCART
has become obsolete[2][dead link] with the introduction of new digital standards such as HDMI
HDMI
and DisplayPort, which can carry high-definition content and multichannel audio, though it remains commonly used. HDMI-CEC is derived from SCART's AV.link.[citation needed] However, SCART
SCART
Connection can also support HD signals like 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, if the SCART connection of a device is designed to support YPbPr
YPbPr
connection, but this configuration is rare. The same for multichannel audio, but even this configuration remains rare, as it is not standardized. The official standard for SCART
SCART
is CENELEC
CENELEC
document number EN 50049-1. SCART
SCART
is sometimes referred to as the IEC 933-1 standard. Note that there is also a Japanese version of the SCART
SCART
connector, which is referred to as the Japanese RGB-21 connector, EIAJ TTC-003,[3] or simply JP-21. This version of SCART
SCART
uses similar signals and the same connector, but it has a different pinout. When using RGB video, the red channel uses the same pins in both standards, so red video with no audio is indicative of mismatching JP-21 SCART with EuroSCART.[4]

Origins[edit] The SCART
SCART
connector first appeared on TVs in 1977. It became compulsory on new TVs sold in France from January 1980,[5][6] and since 1989/1990 in eastern Europe, such as Poland. The actual French legal ruling was published 7 February 1980 and then rescinded 3 July 2015[7]. SCART
SCART
is actually the name of the French organisation that created the connector in 1970. The related European standard EN 50049 has been then refined and published in 1978 by CENELEC, calling it peritelevision but it's commonly called by the abbreviation péritel in French. The standard got several amendments and at least 2 major revisions, approved by CENELEC
CENELEC
13 November 1988 (EN 50049-1:1989) and 1st July 1997 (EN 50049-1:1997)[8]. The Japanese equivalent was standardised in January 1983 with the norm TTC-0003[9] published by EIAJ, which got superseded in March 1993 by the norm CPR-1201[10] to include S-Video. CPR-1201 was withdrawn in March 2003 to be replaced by the equivalent norm CPR-1205, representing Japan move from analogue to digital and thus letting analogue connectors as things from the past. In Japan and Korea, it's commonly called RGB-21 while it's more generally called JP-21 in the English speaking world. It was adopted in Japan for the connector's ability to support RGB output format (no compression nor deterioration of original video signals) but, contrary to SCART
SCART
in Europe, it never saw widespread use on the consumer market. Before SCART
SCART
was introduced, TVs did not offer a standardised way of inputting signals other than RF antenna connectors, and these differed between countries. Assuming other connectors even existed, devices made by various companies could have different and incompatible standards. For example, a domestic VCR could output a composite video signal through a German-originated DIN-style connector, an American-originated RCA connector, an SO239 connector or a BNC connector. Usage[edit] The SCART
SCART
system was intended to simplify connecting AV equipment (including TVs, VCRs, DVD players and games consoles). To achieve this it gathered all of the analogue signal connections into a single cable with a unique connector that made incorrect connections nearly impossible. The signals carried by SCART
SCART
include both composite and RGB (with composite synchronisation) video, stereo audio input/output and digital signalling. The standard was extended at the end of the 1980s to support the new S- Video
Video
signals. A TV can be awakened from standby mode, and it can automatically switch to appropriate AV channel, when the device attached to it through a SCART
SCART
connector is turned on. SCART
SCART
connection was also used for high definition signals like 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p with YPbPr
YPbPr
connection by some manufacturers, but to the present day this connection is very scarce due to the advent of HDMI. Daisy chaining[edit]

Typical SCART
SCART
sockets on a set-top box

SCART
SCART
is bi-directional regarding standard composite video and analogue audio. A TV will typically send the antenna audio and video signals to the SCART
SCART
sockets all the time and watch for returned signals, to display and reproduce them. This allows "transparent" set-top boxes, without any tuner, which just "hook" and pre-process the TV signals. This feature is used for analogue pay TV like Canal Plus and was used for decoding teletext. A VCR will often have two SCART
SCART
sockets, to connect it to the TV ("up", "primary" or "1"), and for video input from a set-top box or other device ("down", "secondary" or "2"). When idle or powered off, VCRs will usually forward the signals from the TV to the set-top decoder and send the processed result back to the TV. When a scrambled show is recorded, the VCR will drive the set-top box from its own tuner and send the unscrambled signals to the TV for viewing or simple recording control. Alternatively, the VCR could use the signals from the TV, in which case it would be inadvisable to change channels on the TV during the recording. The "down" socket can also be used to connect other devices, such as DVD players or game consoles. As long as all devices have at least one "up" and "down" socket, this allows for connecting a virtually unlimited number of devices to a single SCART
SCART
socket on the TV. While audio and video signals can travel both "up" to the TV and "down" to devices farther away from the TV, this is not true for RGB (and non-standard YPBPR) signals, which can only travel towards the TV. "Up" and "down" are conventional. Logically the TV is the last device of the "up" chain-path (stream) and the first device in the "down" chain path. Physically the TV is under the device which sits on its top, hence the name set-top box for the device. Moreover, some sockets' relative position may enforce the belief that the TV is physically the last in the down direction. Logically, the TV is on top and ends the "up" chain-path, translating the electrical info into an image and sound. From the same logical point of view the info stream, wherever it originates, may need processing such as decrypting (decoding, descrambling) or adding captioning/subtitles. In this case the info stream is sent logically "down" to dedicated function devices. From the last processing device the info stream is sent logically "up" to the TV, through all the chain-path. Another case is when the info stream is sent "down" and not expected to be sent back "up", for example when sent to a recorder. Closing a loop on either the "up" or "down" chain-path may not have useful effects and may create instability. Direct connections[edit] As Audio and (Composite) Video
Video
use the same pins on "up" and "down" connectors (and require a crosslinked cable), it is also possible to connect two devices directly to each other without paying attention to the type of the socket. However, this no longer works when S- Video
Video
signals are used. As straight links (RGB Red and Blue up) were re-purposed to carry chrominance information, the S- Video
Video
pinouts are different for "up" and "down" SCART
SCART
connectors.[11] Further, they are often not fully implemented. Paying attention to the type of socket is essential when handling component RGB/YPBPR/S-video. Damage can be caused to devices incorrectly connected as follows:

connecting SCART
SCART
1 ("up") from one device to SCART
SCART
1 ("up") of another device when both SCARTs are configured for RGB/YPBPR/S-video-up. Pins 7, 11 and 15 are outputs. connecting SCART
SCART
2 ("down") from one device to SCART
SCART
2 ("down") of another device when both SCARTs are configured for S-video-down. Pin 7 is an output. connecting SCART
SCART
1 ("up") from a device configured RGB/YPBPR, to SCART 2 ("down") of another device configured with S-video-down. Pin 7 is an output.

Damaging pins 7, 11 or 15 may result in yellow, purple or blue/green images, due to the missing blue, green or red components respectively. When using S-video, damaging pin 7 or 15 may result in black-white images due to the missing chroma component ("down" and "up" respectively). Similarly, damaging pins 7 and 15 (PB and PR) while leaving pin 11 (Y) undamaged may result in black-white images when using YPBPR. Damaging more than one of these pins may result in combined effects. RGB overlays (fast switching)[edit] SCART
SCART
enables a device to command the TV to very quickly switch between signals, in order to create overlays in the image. In order to implement captioning or subtitles, a SCART
SCART
set-top box does not have to process and send back a complete new video signal, which would require full decoding and re-encoding of the color information, a signal-degrading and costly process, especially given the presence of different standards in Europe. The box can instead ask the TV to stop displaying the normal signal and display a signal it generates internally for selected image areas, with pixel-level granularity. This can also be driven by the use of a "transparent" color in a teletext page. Status and aspect ratio (slow switching)[edit] SCART
SCART
allows a connected device to bring it in and out of standby mode or to switch it to the AV channel. A VCR or other playback device will optimally power on when a cassette is inserted, power on the TV (or switch it to video mode) and then start playing immediately if the cassette's write protection tab is absent. When turned off, the VCR will ask the TV to power off, which it will do if it had been powered on by the VCR's request and if it remained in video mode. Only some TVs will do this—most only implement automatic switching to and from the SCART
SCART
input. The same signal can be used by a satellite receiver or set-top box to signal a VCR that it is supposed to start and stop recording ("pin 8 recording"). This configuration usually requires that the VCR be farther from the TV than the source, so the signal usually travels "down". SCART
SCART
also supports automatic widescreen switching. This is an extension of the functionality of a pin which previously only indicated to the TV that an external signal should be displayed. Ideally, a widescreen source should offer three operating modes in order to deal with widescreen signals:

Widescreen, for TVs that are widescreen or capable of otherwise dealing with widescreen images Letterbox, which adds blank space (usually black) at the top and bottom of the image to give a 4:3 aspect ratio Pan and scan, which crops the image to achieve a 4:3 aspect ratio; only the centre portion is displayed with the sides truncated (as if zoomed into).

In the first case, the widescreen pin allows to indicate the current signal format, which allows widescreen TVs to adjust the image width, and widescreen-capable standard TVs to compress the scan lines of the 576i
576i
image vertically to a letterbox shape portion of the picture tube. In the second case, the widescreen SCART
SCART
signal is never active and the signal source performs the adaptations itself so that the image has always a standard format as a result. Some sources assume that the TV is always capable of widescreen functionality and hence never perform the adaptations. Some sources will not even issue the widescreen signal or maintain it at the same level all the time. Other sources might offer the option of truncating the sides, but not of letterboxing, which requires significantly more processing. Notably, the circuitry of the early widescreen MAC standard decoders (e.g. the Visiopass) could not letterbox. The limitations apply mostly to satellite TVs, while DVD players can always at least letterbox and often zoom. Data bus[edit] The use of the data pins was not standardised in the original SCART specification, resulting in the use of several different protocols, both proprietary protocols and semi-proprietary protocols based on standards such as D²B. Some of the most creative usages appeared in analogue satellite receivers. The function of decoding hybrid, time-compressed analogue-digital MAC transmissions into RGB and analogue audio was akin to making a digital receiver out of an analogue one. The D²B pins (10 and 12) were used for communicating with satellite dish positioners and for driving magnetic polarisers, before these became incorporated into LNBs. The daisy-chaining features were used to connect both a Pay TV decoder and a dish positioner/polariser to a single Decoder socket on the receiver.[12] CENELEC
CENELEC
EN 50157-1 introduced AV.link as a standardised protocol to carry advanced control information between devices. It is a single-wire serial data bus and allows carrying remote control information and to negotiate analogue signal types (e.g. RGB). AV.link is also known as nexTViewLink or trade names such as SmartLink, Q-Link or EasyLink. It appears as the Consumer Electronics Control channel in HDMI. Multi channel surround[edit] The data pins, 10, 12, 14, were used by some manufacturers for DOLBY ProLogic, surround and multichannel on their TV sets (some high end models with built in Dolby decoders, and external surround speakers, both CRT, LCD and plasma sets, and only in Europe (and European versions of Japanese TV Sets and DVD players), and mainly on S/PDIF), in order to connect a DVD player to the TV set and stream the Dolby and DTS to the surround of the TV set. However, this protocol was rarely used, as it was limited only to a certain manufacturer, and the connections were different from a manufacturer to another, and in some cases, it was only commanded by the pin 8. In this case, it was unusable with RCA to SCART
SCART
adapters. Also, if a Compatible TV with such connection and a compatible DVD with such connection, but from different manufacturers were interconnected, the surround might not work, and only the stereo sound from the DVD player was available to the TV, because some manufacturers did not use SPDIF, but an own protocol. Also, this connection might be also lost, if the connection of the DVD with the TV was made indirectly (through a VCR in daisy chaining mode, for example), however, some VCR allowed the pass-through of this signals. Some DVD player manufacturers on some models offered SPDIF only on SCART, and an adapter in order to extract the digital audio signal to send it to a home cinema. To the present day this connection remains rare, as HDMI, S/PDIF, and TOSLINK
TOSLINK
can provide multichannel audio, also some TV sets with Surround built in may have an Optical or S/PDIF
S/PDIF
INPUT, beside Output. High definition[edit] SCART
SCART
connection was also used, in limited cases, as a high definition connection by using an YPbPr
YPbPr
connection over scart by some television and audio video equipment (set top boxes, DVD players, Blu-ray players, etc.) manufacturers. By using an YPbPr
YPbPr
connection, SCART could be used for high definition signals, like 720i, 720p, 1080i, 1080p. Some manufacturers were using as Y the video composite connection, while others were using the green connection as Y. With the advent of HDMI, and because of the fact that the connection was not standardized (as was S-video) and limited only to a certain manufacturer, devices supporting high definition channels over SCART with YPbPr
YPbPr
connection became scarce, if not extinct. In many cases, it was implemented over a RGB SCART
SCART
or CVBS
CVBS
SCART
SCART
and the YPbPr
YPbPr
mode of SCART
SCART
was manually switched. YPbPr
YPbPr
became used as an independent connection, and SCART
SCART
was left only for standard definition content. Cordset types[edit]

Non-RGB SCART
SCART
male connector. Only 10 pins (2, 6, 7, 8, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20) are available. Some cheap cables or devices (DVD players, TVs) have a 21-pin SCART
SCART
connector or socket that actually have 10 wires connected and are thus not RGB / S- Video
Video
capable, but only CVBS.

Multi-AV (2-channel audio, S- Video

and CVBS) SCART
SCART
adaptors with input/output signal switch

Nearly all modern DVD players and set-top boxes with SCART
SCART
sockets can output RGB signal, which offers superior picture quality to composite signal. However, many devices do not have RGB output turned on by default, instead defaulting to composite video — RGB often has to be set up manually in the menu or via switches on the back of the device.

The Nintendo GameCube†, Wii†, Neo-Geo, Dreamcast, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox and Xbox 360
Xbox 360
can output RGB, component video, S-Video, or composite video. These consoles come with the standard composite video connector, but the manufacturers and third parties sell connectors for component video hookup and for RGB SCART
SCART
hookup. Where the Nintendo GameCube
Nintendo GameCube
and Xbox automatically switch to the proper mode, the PlayStation 2

must be told via a selection in the system menu whether it is to use YPBPR or RGB video. ^ † RGB is only available on PAL region
PAL region
GameCube and Wii

consoles, while S- Video
Video
is only available on NTSC consoles.[14] Some versions of legacy consoles such as Sega's Master System, Genesis and Nintendo's SNES are capable of outputting RGB signals, and many older home computers (Amstrad CPC, later ZX Spectrum
ZX Spectrum
models, MSX, Commodore Amiga, Atari ST, BBC Micro
BBC Micro
and Acorn Archimedes, etc.) output RGB with composite sync suitable for SCART
SCART
use, but most used varying non-standard DIN plugs. Standard-resolution arcade monitors use RGB signals with a composite sync, which is SCART-compatible. Maximum SCART
SCART
cable length is estimated to be about 10 to 15 metres without amplification.[citation needed] Due to the relatively high signal voltages used in SCART, "hot plugging" (connecting or disconnecting devices while they are on) is not recommended. Although there is no risk of personal injury, there is the possibility of damaging electronics within the devices if the connector is inserted improperly.[citation needed] Also, since many TVs are Class II (double-insulated) rather than earthed, the large exposed shield on the SCART
SCART
connector will be held at approximately half mains voltage if it is plugged into a powered TV with the other end unplugged. If the cable is then plugged into an earthed device with a metal case, inadvertent contact with the SCART
SCART
cable shield while the earthed device is touched with the other hand can cause a painful electric shock. For this reason the device end of the cable should always be plugged in first and the TV end plugged in last.[15][16][17] Quality differences exist in SCART
SCART
cables. While a proper SCART
SCART
cable uses miniature coaxial cables for the video signals, cheap SCART cables often use plain wires for all signals, resulting in a loss of image quality and greatly reducing the maximum cable length. A common problem on a cheap SCART
SCART
cable is that a TV outputs a composite video signal from its internal tuner and this is induced or cross-talked onto an incoming video signal due to inadequate or non-existent screening; the result is ghostly images or shimmering superimposed on the incoming signal. To non-destructively verify if a SCART
SCART
cable uses coaxial cables, unscrew the strain relief at the SCART
SCART
connector and fold open the plastic shell. Using higher-quality cables such as those with ribbon cords that have properly shielded coaxial cables inside might help in reducing a 'ghosting' effect, but it does not always completely eliminate it due to various factors. A more permanent method is to remove pin 19 (Video Out) from the SCART
SCART
plug that is put into the TV, preventing a signal from being broadcast by the TV into the cable, so it cannot cross-talk with the incoming signal. Multichannel audio, like DOLBY (like SPDIF connections), may be supported on SCART
SCART
connection, through data pins 10, 12, 14. However, not all devices are compatible with this standards, therefore it remains rarely used, as there is no standard regarding connection, and it may be different from a manufacturer to another. Blanking and switching[edit] Two pins provide switching signals. Pin 8, the switch signal pin, carries a DC voltage from the source that indicates the type of video present.

0 V–2 V means no signal, or internal bypass 4.5 V–7 V (nominal 6 V) means a widescreen (16:9) signal 9.5 V–12 V (nominal 12 V) means a normal (4:3) signal

Pin 16, the blanking signal pin, carries a signal from the source that indicates that the signal is either RGB or composite.

0 V–0.4 V means composite. 1 V–3 V (nominal 1 V) means RGB only.

The original specification defined pin 16 as a high frequency (up to 3 MHz) signal that blanked the composite video. The RGB inputs were always active and the signal 'punches holes' in the composite video. This could be used to overlay subtitles from an external Teletext
Teletext
decoder.

0 V–0.4 V means composite with a transparent RGB overlay. 1 V–3 V (nominal 1 V) RGB only.

There is no switching signal to indicate S-Video. Some TVs can auto-detect the presence of the S- Video
Video
signal but more commonly the S- Video
Video
input needs to be manually selected. The same for the rare component YPbPr, which is in many cases implemented over a composite or rgb scart. Cables[edit] The cables for connecting equipment together have a male plug at each end. Some of the wires such as ground, data, switching and RGB connect to the identical pin number at each end. Others such as audio and video are swapped so that an output signal at one end of the cable connects to an input signal at the other end. The complete list of wires that are swapped is: pins 1 and 2, pins 3 and 6, pins 17 and 18, pins 19 and 20. SCART
SCART
leads are available in a wide range of stores in Europe and in specialised stores in North America. See also[edit]
