White Paper WHP 169 Download
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.
