In the past it has become common practice in commercial application of video playback systems to utilize video monitors that were especially designed to accept the video signals of a particular playback system. This enabled the designer to optimize both the video player and monitor for most practical and economical results. The necessary interconnections usually consisted of video and audio cables which made it very convenient to operate and set up the video playback system. However, when one considers the use of home television receivers as a means for monitoring the output signals of video players, the compatability of the signal with those receivers has to be kept in mind.
