Video test equipment is used by engineers to generate stable video signals with carefully defined characteristics for measuring, analyzing, and displaying the results of image digitization, processing, and display. To examine conventional broadcast signals, engineers generally implement signal and pattern generators, oscilloscopes, and waveform monitors. Now, with increased interest in digital camera and fiberoptic interfaces, test engineers must also be aware of the latest digital storage oscilloscopes and fiberoptic test-and-measurement equipment.
LOTS OF ARTICLES
Articles on color bars, DVDs, engineering primers, test patterns, and video standards are just part of the information you'll find on the Web site of the Video University. Primarily devoted to resources on video and film production, the Web site also contains a collection of documents on many video topics.
