analog input

Hardware interfaces that accept non-digital signals. For decades, all the plugs and sockets on traditional audio and video equipment connected analog lines. In addition, the common high-density DB-15 socket on a monitor is analog (see VGA). In the illustration below, BNC connectors have also been used for digital signals. Contrast with digital input.
