High Frame-Rate Television
The frame and field rates that have been used for television since the 1930's cause problems for motion portrayl, which are increasingly evident on the large, high-resolution television displays that are now common. In this paper we report on programme of experimental work that sucessfully demonsrated the advantages of higher frame rate capture and display as a means of improving the quality of television systems of all spatial resolutions. We identify additional benefits from the use of high frame-rate capture for the production of programmes to be viewed using conventional televisions. We suggest ways to mitigate some of the production and distribution issues that high-frame rate television implies. This document was originally published in the proceedings of the IBC2008 conference.
