Example text

HD Analog Video High definition video, usually known as HD, is generally associated with digital television. However, all cameras and picture displays, including those for HD, operate as analog devices when the images are first acquired and finally displayed. This is because the light from the original scene, and the light produced by the final display device, is itself analog, so the associated video voltage at that point is also analog. Analog high definition video formats are usually referred to with the same terms used for the digital HD formats (1080I and 720P).

3. More Frequent Digital Samples of an Analog Signal Four main sampling rates are used for digital audio: 32,000 samples per second, 44,100 samples per second, 48,000 samples per second, and 96,000 samples per second. 1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz, respectively. 1 kHz, but most broadcast digital audio studio equipment uses 48 kHz sampling. 48 6 D I G I TA L A U D I O A N D V I D E O Quantizing The audio samples are converted to a series of binary numbers, ranging from 0 to the largest binary number used for the system.

It may refer to a modulated carrier that is combined with other signals and then modulated onto a higher carrier frequency. , COFDM, as mentioned later in this chapter). Modulation for the broadcast signal takes place as part of the transmission process (see Chapter 16). A radio or television receiver picks up the transmitted radio waves and selects the correct RF channel with a tuner. It then performs demodulation in order to recover the program information that was carried by the radio wave, converting it back to baseband audio, video, and perhaps data, signals.
