The audio/video cable used in this demonstration is a common style with consumer-based one-chip camcorders. One end will feature a yellow RCA composite video and red-white stereo audio connection. The other end will have a 1/8" jack, similar to a headphone jack.
On higher end prosumer/professional 3-chip camcorders, it's likely to feature a yellow-red-white connection on the camera. Another alternative is to use the red-white stereo cables and S-Video connection.
All connections will be considered when discussing Step 4: Attaching Cables To Camcorder.
