This action continually repeats with the horizontal deflection and flyback synchronised to the video signal. 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.

Where signals exceed this maximum, distortion of the signal and the information it carries will occur. The form of distortion will depend on the system and how it has been misused, and the effect on the signal will depend on its resilience. 1 Insufficient headroom. The left-hand figure passes through the doorway easily. The one on the right is too tall. If a signal is too large the system will distort it and it is also likely that damage to other signals will occur where the system handles more than one at a time.

Plates W carry the signal waveform, controlling the beam vertically, whilst XX carry the horizontal timing control. The Z connection to the electron gun allows the beam to be turned off during its return flyback. standard signal and its references. Black level is established as the reference from which to measure picture levels. Overall amplitude is measured from the tip of sync pulses to the maximum permissible, which is white, sometimes known as ‘peak white’, and we have a time scale. It is usual to state ‘one volt of video’ as the amplitude of a standard test signal.
