I didn't know there was a standard for any colors of cables.  I use 
black for composite video, yellow for SDI, and just started using orange 
for HD-SDI.  I also tend to use purple for AES audio, mostly because 
some of the AES cables I bought once were purple and it stuck!  I've 
seen other companies use other colors...
