Sample text

In NTSC, there are 525 horizontal lines in each frame, 483 of which form the actual picture. The refresh rate is 30 frames per second. Interlacing When the NTSC standard was developed, 30 frames of video per second was about the best that available technology could process and transmit in a 6 MHz-wide television transmission channel. However, pictures presented at 30 frames per second appear to flicker terribly. NTSC television reduces this flicker without actually increasing the frame rate by using an arrangement called interlacing.

2. Because the picture rate is 30 frames per second, the field rate is 60 fields per second. In an interlaced NTSC picture, each of the lines in the picture is still refreshed 30 times every second. 2. Two Interlaced Fields for Each NTSC Frame being refreshed at different times when there is only a period of 1/60th of a second between them. The effect is to create the appearance that the full screen is being refreshed twice as often, or 60 times per second, increasing the apparent refresh rate and greatly reducing the perceived screen flicker.

A CD is reliable because the information is permanently etched, or carved, into the plastic of the disc as very small indentations or pits. It cannot be erased by passing through a magnetic field like the information on a recording tape can, and the only way to damage the information is to physically damage the CD by breaking or severely scratching it. Small scratches are often not a problem because CD players are able to miss a few 1s and 0s in the digital information and still accurately reconstruct the recorded music.
