What Is Video out and How Is It Used When Recording Videos?

When talking about digital cameras and cam-corders the ‘video-out’ is a graphics connection which allows a video signal to be output from the camera via a cable to an external piece of viewing or recording equipment. A video-out port will output a video signal in a number of formats including NTSC, PAL, and HDMI. With a camera connected to external equipment via the video-out port images can be viewed and streamed live, or recorder directly to external storage medium. Security cameras for example use a video-out port to stream images so that they can be viewed in realtime.
