A D-Terminal or D-tanshi (Ｄ端子) is a type of analog video connector found on Japanese consumer electronics, typically HDTV, DVD, Blu-ray, D-VHS and HD DVD devices. It was developed by the EIAJ (Electronic Industry Association of Japan) in its standard, RC-5237, for use in digital satellite broadcast tuners. In appearance it is a small flat trapezic connector, the same connector as the AAUI connector used by Apple Computer for some time to connect to ethernet.
- D1 480i (525i)： 720 × 480 interlaced
- D2 480p (525p)： 720 × 480 progressive
- D3 1080i (1125i)： 1920 × 1080 interlaced
- D4 720p (750p)： 1280 × 720 progressive
- D5 1080p (1125p)： 1920 × 1080 progressive
A device with a D-Terminal connector supports that level and lower D-Terminal signal. For example, a D4 connector can be used with a D4, D3, D2, or D1 signal, but not with a D5 signal.
With the aforementioned diagrams, consumers should take careful consideration regarding the input and output terminals. Purchased products such as the PlayStation Portable (PSP-2000) are equipped with the (D2) interface. However, since the release of System Software Ver.5.00, the interface has been changed to (D1). Since 2010, the PSP's I/O system has adopted the progressive I/O interface (D1). Furthermore, the PSP-3000 marks the possibility of interlace I/O.
