Video Test Signals


  • a. In the test pattern, the H resolution measures the vertical lines.
  • b. How many horizontal details can be resolved with 300-line resolution? 400.
  • c. How many gray-scale steps are in the EIA test pattern? 10.
  • d. Smooth diagonal lines show good interlacing.


  • a. The line in the vertical wedges indicates horizontal resolution.
  • b. How many actual horizontal details correspond to the resolution of 210 lines? 280.
  • c. What video frequency corresponds to 240 lines of horizontal resolution? 3 Mhz.


  • a. Excessive gain at 3.75 Mhz cause ringing.


  • a. Monoscope is a special type camera tube with a fixed image of a test pattern printed on the target.
  • b. A fixed image is engraved on the target plate of the Monoscope. T.


  • a. A ball chart is used with crosshatched pattern.
  • b. The ball chart test is for the camera.
  • c. The maximum permissible nonlinearity for broadcast cameras is 2 percent.


  • a. Which peak C value matches 100 percent white in amplitude? Cyan.
  • b. A vectorscope is an oscilloscope.


  • a. How many IRE units is the white window signal? 100.
  • b. How many microseconds is the width of the window signal? 26.25 µs.


  • a. A T sine-squared pulse have an HAD of one picture element.
  • b. A 2T sine-squared pulse has an HAD of 0.25 µs.
  • c. A 2T sine-squared pulse has no high frequency components above 4 Mhz.
  • d. A modulated 12.5T pulse has a peak amplitude higher than the flat part of the window signal. This means that the gain for 3.58 Mhz is too high.


  • a. How many H lines wide is the vertical sync pulse? 3.
  • b. What is the count for the H line just after all the equalizing pulses? Line 10.


  • a. What is the p-p value for a 3.58 Mhz signal on each step of the modulated stair-step in IRE units? 7.5.


  • a. Which two lines in V blanking are used for VITS? 17 and 18.
  • b. What line is used for the mulitiburst test signal? 17.
  • c. What is the highest test frequency in the multiburst? 4.2 Mhz.


  • a. Name the test signals transmitted in the vertical blanking interval. VIRS and VITS.
  • b. VIRS is transmitted on line 19.
  • c. Which test signal has the reference values for the chroma phase and amplitude? VIRS.


  • a. The SMPTE code uses lines 12, 13 and 14 in the vertical blanking time.
  • b. SMPTE – Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers
  • c. SMPTE time code is used to identify the program material, time of day, frame number, and other production information.
  • d. Videotext – when data are distributed in the form of video signals
  • e. Teletext – method of using TV broadcast signal. It is the system of transmitting communications signals in the vertical blanking interval, by either broadcast or cable television.
  • f. Visual captions for the TV picture can be encoded in the V blanking time. T
