S-video, which stands for Separated Video or Super Video is a specialized type of analog video signal that is capable of carrying video data in two different signals. It is different from composite video because composite video carries the picture information in a lower-quality signal. In addition, it is different from component video because component video carries the picture information within three signals that are of higher quality. S-video is most typically found carrying 480i or 576i resolution video, which is also referred to as standard definition video.
Simply put, a converter box with an S-video output will allow you to achieve a sharper image than you would receive with a standard composite video output. While S-video will not help you improve your audio and still will not allow you to watch a digital broadcast on your analog television, it will help you enjoy a higher quality image than you would receive with composite video.

Not even close! It should be noted that, in order to receive the best picture possible, you will need to purchase a television that is capable of receiving digital broadcast rather than using a converter box. If your budget does not allow for purchasing a new television or if you simply do not want to purchase a new TV at this time, you purchase a converter with an S-video output in order to enjoy a better picture. Just keep in mind that the converter box changes the digital signal into an analog signal before displaying it on your television, which means you will be receiving a lower quality image when compared to the image that was originally broadcast.
