Definition

Also known as Euroconnector or Peritel, a 21-pin connector commonly used in Europe to interconnect satellite receivers, television sets, and other audiovisual equipment (e.g. videocassette recorders). A single connector combines audio and video signals. The name comes from "Syndicat des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radiorécepteurs et Téléviseurs."

Peritel is an abbreviation for "péritélévision." Peri is a prefix that means around or surrounding — in this case, it suggests the connection between the television and its electronic environment.
