Connect Editor To A Jvc Monitor

VGA cable and connector for a standard-definition JVC monitor

JVC monitors for computer or television use are equipped with two types of inputs for connecting other components, such as a digital or analog tape editor for video. Standard-definition JVC monitors use a video graphics array (VGA) port with 15 pin holes. High-definition monitors use an HDMI (high definition media interface) cable, which also supplies audio to JVC monitors with built-in or detachable speakers. Either cable type is available at electronics and computer stores.


1. Press and hold the “Power” button on the front of the JVC monitor until the screen darkens and shuts off. Turn off the digital or analog editor component as well.

2. Turn the JVC monitor around to inspect the back connection panel. Use an HDMI cable if your monitor has a hexagonal port labeled “HDMI.” A four-sided port with 15 pin holes is a VGA input.

3. Connect one end of your video cable to the input port on the back of the JVC monitor.

4. Attach the other end of the cable to the video output on the digital or analog editor. This connection enables you to see your work while editing video from a source connected to the editor component, such as a digital camcorder or VCR.
