Example text

Waveform scan. 2. Waveform monitor continuously displaying the scanning of CRT by the electron beam. 21 CCDs are the heart of the camera. Charge-Coupled Devices Charge-coupled devices (CCDs) are the parts inside of the camera that change the light focused on them by the camera lens into electrical signals. CCDs have been developed from the same sort of solid-state silicon chip technology that has made computers faster, smaller, more powerful, and cheaper; put powerful radios into small packages; and made home camcorders the size of a book.

What we have been discussing up to now is called analog video. In the analog process, the bright images on the face of the CCD are changed into higher voltages, and the darker images on the CCD are turned into lower voltages. These are then reproduced on the CRT where the higher voltages create brighter images and the lower voltages create darker images. This process has been around for more than 60 years. But the analog process has a lot of problems. The quality of the picture is limited and can easily be degraded by some equipment.

This graph represents an electron beam scanning one line of information, returning to the other side of the target during blanking, and reading a new line of video. Everything above the base line represents the electron beam sweeping across the target in its normal direction, collecting information; anything below the base line is the beam returning in the other direction. The graph actually measures the voltage of the electron beam in special units called IRE units (for Institute of Radio Engineers, now called the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers).
