    A simple explanation would be a group of wires bound together (like with wire ties) where you could 'break' one of the strands 'out' and connect it to something.

    A breakout cable to be used to connect a component out player to a VGA port for say an X1. Use only the red, green and blue BNCs but u will also need BNC to RCA adapters.

    Ehh... i don't think so...

    A breakout cable, as far as i am familiar with it, is used to connect a computer to a projector with RGB ins. A computer VGA connector contains all 5 connection pins, and most projectors have 5 separate BNC plugs, so they just terminate the other end with BNC instead of VGA plug.

    You can't send component video to RGB ins.
