ⓘ D-Terminal

A D-Terminal or D-tanshi is a type of analog video connector found on Japanese consumer electronics, typically HDTV, DVD, Blu-ray, D-VHS and HD DVD devices. It was developed by the EIAJ in its standard, RC-5237, for use in digital satellite broadcast tuners. In appearance it is a small flat trapezic connector, the same connector as the AAUI connector used by Apple Computer for some time to connect to ethernet.

Some items sold outside Japan use the connector as well. Notable examples are Canons XH-A1 DVC high-definition camcorder and Panasonics AG-HVX200 DVCPro HD camcorder.

                                     

1. D1~D5 types

A D-Terminal connector carries a component video signal YP B P R. A device with a D5 connector can understand and display the following video signals:

  • D4 720p 750p: 1280 × 720 progressive
  • D3 1080i 1125i: 1920 × 1080 interlaced
  • D2 480p 525p: 720 × 480 progressive
  • D1 480i 525i: 720 × 480 interlaced
  • D5 1080p 1125p: 1920 × 1080 progressive

A device with a D-Terminal connector supports that level and lower D-Terminal signal. For example, a D4 connector can be used with a D4, D3, D2, or D1 signal, but not with a D5 signal.

It is possible to use a simple breakout cable to connect a D-Terminal connector to a standard 3 RCA jack or BNC component connection.

                                     

2. Compatibility Questions

With the aforementioned diagrams, consumers should take careful consideration regarding the input and output terminals. Purchased products such as the PlayStation Portable PSP-2000 are equipped with the D2 interface. However, since the release of System Software Ver.5.00, the interface has been changed to D1. Since 2010, the PSPs I/O system has adopted the progressive I/O interface D1. Furthermore, the PSP-3000 marks the possibility of interlace I/O.
