Many of the problems with interlaced video go away completely when you use progres-
sive scanning. You must progressively scan at twice the normal film frame rate (or at the
field rate) to provide smooth motion. High-definition TV systems and computer displays
are designed around a progressive-scanning model. Figure 5-8 illustrates the progressive-
scanning line layout.
Picture Sizes and Formats
Television services transmit images of a markedly lower resolution than professional film
formats. The frame rates are higher and the delivery process is often more complex. This
is designed to reduce the transmission bandwidth.
