Example text

The timebase clock shown has a variable time rate (as indicated by the arrow), providing different time lengths over which the signal may be observed. 3 is twice line rate as determined by the clock rate. 11 shows how this appears and for comparison, a display of just one line. Note, the latter may appear less bright for it only has one line’s worth of energy every &th of a second, whereas the former has a whole field of 312; lines over the same period. Exactly the same applies when considering the field display.

The process repeats every two fields, making one frame. When the bottom of the picture is reached, the scan returns to the top. All this action is conducted ‘out of picture’. In fact, one can consider the picture as having a black frame where all the mechanics of picture construction go on unseen. With many displays the active scan size actually exceeds the physical size of the screen, thereby producing a cut off. Where the full scan is seen, electronic blanking, or reduction to black, ensures a clean straight edge all around the picture.

Signal time values are standard and as such are designed into the picture generating equipment, whatever that may be. Such parameters are unlikely to vary unless a fault condition arises. On the other hand, synchronism is a system feature, with operational requirements. g. 10 The complete waveform monitor. The dc restore circuit at the signal input gives black level a precise value and places black at the same point on the graticule regardless of how the picture values change. The sync separator is a sophisticated circuit that provides precise timing from the sync pulses for the timebase generator.
