What is? SCART

Jargon Buster: SCART

A SCART lead is a 21-pin oblong connector that’s become a standard within the industry. It’s been widely regarded as the precursor to HDMI, and today, most televisions have at least one, if not two SCART ports. You can use ‘SCART cables’ (cables with a SCART plug or socket on either end) to connect set-top boxes, DVD players, Hi-Fi systems, and even more.
