White Paper WHP 209 Download
The frame and field rates that have been used for Television since the 1930s cause problems for motion portrayal, which are increasingly evident on the large, high-resolution television displays that are now common. In this paper we report on a programme of experimental work that successfully demonstrated the advantages of higher frame capture and display as a means of improving the quality of television systems of all spatial resolutions. The greater realism of motion portrayal obtained at higher frame rates is required to present a truly immersive experience.
