However, resolution may be substantially less than the number of pixel pairs due to optical, electro-optical, and electrical filtering effects. Limiting resolution is defined as the frequency where detail is recorded with just 10 percent of the system’s lowfrequency response. In consumer television, the number of scanning lines is fixed by the raster standard, but the electronics of transmission, recording, and display systems tend to limit bandwidth and reduce horizontal resolution. Consequently, in consumer electronics the term resolution generally refers to horizontal resolution.

0 Light intensity, relative well matched to perception. 45 value are very well established. The economic importance of equipment that is already built to these standards will deter any attempt to establish new standards just because they are better matched to particular devices. We can expect new display devices to incorporate local correction, to adapt between their intrinsic transfer functions and the transfer function that has been standardized for image interchange. Rec. 6 above illustrates the transfer function defined by the international Rec.

This cascaded process is repeated twice in the processing of motion picture film. It is important that the individual power functions at each stage are kept under tight control, both in the design and the processing of the film. To a first approximation, the intent is to obtain roughly unity gamma through the entire series of cascaded processes. Individual steps may depart from linearity, as long as approximate linearity is restored at the end of the chain. Now, here’s a surprise. If a film system is designed and processed to produce exactly linear reproduction of intensity, reflection prints look fine.
