Gigabit Video Interface (GVIF) is a digital video serial interface developed by Sony in 1996 for high quality uncompressed video transmission from digital video hardware. Is intended primarily for automotive applications. It is compatible with the HDCP encryption system.

GVIF transmits uncompressed serial data at speeds up to 1.95 Gbit/s. GVIF transmits over a single differential pair, as a result, the cable is thin. Transmission distances up to ten meters are possible.
