The Super VHS (SVHS) video format (also known as Y/C) requires two coaxial cables to allow for separate transmission of the two parts of a VHS video signal; the luminance (Y) and chrominance (C). The chrominance signal contains the color information and the luminance the black and white or brightness information of the video signal. This separated transmission of the VHS video signal provides better picture resolution with less noise than does the standard VHS format.
