I would change the title to refer to formats rather than standards.

standards has a bit of a "quality" type feel to it, wheras this is about encoding formats.

As I understand it there is also a difference between the number of lines used between the American standard and the european standard, I think this would be worth mentioning. Also I'm not sure about the frame thing, as I understand it (this is mainly from the www.restoration-team.co.uk article on the Doctor Who TV Movie) when transfering an american show to european format, new frames have to be created by a device between existing frames. How does this fit in if the refresh rate is slower?

These are just some questions the article left me withsmiley - smiley

I'm not too familiar with this entry's content, so I won't comment on it at the moment smiley - smiley

Stylewise, some GuideML wouldn't go amiss. Obviously this isn't essential, but the use of the tag would certainly make the entry prettier.

Also, there shouldn't be those spaces on either side of the slash/solidus/virgule in the subject title. The title should read 'Video/Television Standards' to be pedantically correct.

Maybe a change in title to reflect the focus on game systems? That or some information on VCRs, DVDs and TV-sets and the fact that they now tend to be capable of handling multiple formats.

The whole frame thing works something like this:

In the UK, one second of TV or film consists of 25 frames. Now, 25 frames per second is too slow for the human eye to see a good, consistent picture, so this causes a 'jumpy', flickering feel and look when watching. To combat this, every frame is actually shown twice - this tricks the brain into seeing a much smoother, faster picture. Funnily enough, it's called the 'flicker rate'! smiley - biggrin

I loved the read. someting I did so long ago at college.

Here are a few points I came accross:

The word standard is correct! Standatd being a set of agreed specifications.

Quite corectly you talk about PAL being used in various countries, this is correct.
However Goverments have conspired to make it hard to recieve other stations by in the broadcasting system by varying the vision and audio carrier's so a picture may apear there would be no sound if the correct letter is not used. This is where the signel is combined with audio / video as in Tv trannsmiters' or games modulators.

Television Receiver would be a better to use I think as this then eccompases TV's Video's rather than a monitor, which accepts audio / video seperatly.

I hope this a constructive.

There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

Is the author of this entry likely to make an appearance and tell us if he wants to make the suggested amendments?
