    The extensive paper by O. H. Schade, Sr., (RCA Review, vol. 28, pp. 460–535, September 1967) is summarized. The resolving power of an imaging system is described in terms of a series of “resolving power functions”; these relate the resolution to the exposure as a critical variable. The successive functions vary as a number of other significant parameters are changed. The treatment permits predicti... View full abstract»

    Certain papers published by the British Post Office on the subjective impairment of television pictures, which do not seem to have attracted the attention they deserve, make it possible to derive an overall subjective rating factor for a picture having a number of individual impairments from which in turn can be derived the statistical spread of opinion over the population corresponding to the tot...

    The author claims that the FCC-approved television system is equal in quality to 35mm film in many ways and superior to it in many others. The article is in three parts: a history of the relationship of the television system to motion-picture film, a discussion as to how the two mediums can be compared on equal terms, and finally, an exposition of how the two mediums compare, with some remarks con...

  • Color Calibrator for Monitors in Television Studios

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):622 - 623
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    The color calibrator permits an observer to compare the color of the peak-white video level on a TV monitor with the standard white provided by filtered light from a lamp in the calibrator. The standard white chromaticity is equal to that from CIE Illuminant D<inf>6500</inf>. The design, construction, calibration and application of the instrument are discussed. Control of the chromatic... View full abstract»

  • A Magnetic Disc Video-Scan Converter

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):624 - 626
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (962 KB)

    Magnetic disc memories that store information at video bandwidths require auxiliary devices to record and play back single or multiple frames of video data. By choice of modulation technique new information may be added at slow or rapid rates to a video frame which is continually repeated at normal TV scan rates for the benefit of an observer. As an example, a video x-y plotter is described. Disc ... View full abstract»

  • A Motion-Picture Film Cue System Based upon Infrared Diffraction

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):627 - 630
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (690 KB)

    A new cue system for motion-picture printers is based upon the incoherent diffraction of infrared radiation. It is completely interchangeable with and compatible with present RF and notch cue systems. Diffraction cues are placed on the film. The detector is on the printing machine. The punched paper tapes used to encode the printer light changes remain unmodified. A cue consists of inscribed, fine... View full abstract»

  • An Historical Survey of the Development of Xenon Light for Projection Purposes

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):630 - 632
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1009 KB)

    Beginning with a discussion of historical light sources (lime lights, arc lamps with condensers and mirrors; low- and high-intensity carbon-arc lamps), the development of gas discharge lamps, which came out after 1930, were suitable only for black-and-white film projection. The xenon lamp, which appeared on the market in 1954, could project both color and black-and-white films and therefore replac... View full abstract»

  • Xenon Lamps in Film and Television

    Xenon lamps have applications in theater, commercial and amateur projection; rear projection of slides and film; the projection of television images (Eidophor); studio lighting; and lighting of space vehicle launches. Compared to the light from other types of discharge lamps, that of xenon lamps most closely resembles natural daylight. It has the highest color rendering index. The advantages of xe...

  • Trapezoidal Distortion in Projected Images

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):637 - 639
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (332 KB)

    Trapezoidal distortion results when the projector lens axis and the screen axis do not coincide. Their difference is axial displacement which can be measured in degrees of arc or as the linear difference between the optimum and actual projector positions. The increased use of rear-screen systems with a shortened throw and two or more projectors makes the determination of the axial displacement lim... View full abstract»
