The following section will cover: Analog Video Signal Types Digital Video Signal Types Analog (To Top) A color analog video signal contains information about luminance (Y) and chrominance (C). When combined into one channel, it is called composite video. Composite, formerly the most common type of...Read more
The following section will cover various signal interfaces such as: DVI HDMI DisplayPort SDI / HD-SDI HDBaseT Fiber Interfaces DVI (To Top) Digital Visual Interface (DVI) was developed in 1999 as a convenient interface for the transfer of uncompressed digital video signals. The DVI specification...Read more
Digital technologies have revolutionized the way we work with both audio and video signals. However, representing information as groups of binary numbers requires an enormous amount of computing power, specifically memory capacity and processing capability. These requirements become especially...Read more
Compression Video compression is a process that reduces and removes redundant video information so that a digital video file/stream can be sent across a network and stored more efficiently. An encoding algorithm is applied to the source video to create a compressed stream that is ready for...Read more
EDID With such a wide range of display types and capabilities, it becomes difficult for video system users to optimize the output timings of source devices for all of the different kinds of display types to which they can connect. Fortunately, the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA)...Read more
Conceptually, streaming refers to the delivery of a steady “stream” of media content that’s been digitized for transmission over an IP network. Streamed content can consist of prerecorded data or real-time video, like camera feeds. What complicates streaming is that most data networks were designed...Read more
