Example text

The format is able to carry two channels of audio (either two mono channels or one stereo pair), at any of the standard digital audio sampling frequencies, and with an accuracy of 16, 20, or 24 bits per sample. The stream of digital bits is organized into 64 bit segments called frames (not to be confused with video picture frames). Each of these frames is further broken down into two subframes. Subframe 1 carries the digital audio information for audio channel 1, and subframe 2 carries the digital audio information for audio channel 2.

The voltage is proportional to the amount of light at each point in the picture, with the lowest voltage being equivalent to black and the highest voltage being equivalent to the brightest parts of the picture. 5. Monochrome Scan Line Waveform 40 5 ANALOG COLOR TELEVISION lines and fields begin. When this video signal of picture information and sync pulses is fed to a picture monitor, it produces pictures. When it is displayed on a special piece of test equipment (waveform monitor) to show the shape of the electrical signal, it is known as a video waveform.

More Frequent Digital Samples of an Analog Signal Four main sampling rates are used for digital audio: 32,000 samples per second, 44,100 samples per second, 48,000 samples per second, and 96,000 samples per second. 1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz, respectively. 1 kHz, but most broadcast digital audio studio equipment uses 48 kHz sampling. 48 6 D I G I TA L A U D I O A N D V I D E O Quantizing The audio samples are converted to a series of binary numbers, ranging from 0 to the largest binary number used for the system.
