Aleksandar Louis Todorovic: “Digital Television”
Analog-to-Digital Conversion:
i) Sampling “The sampling process means the taking of a number
of sample values at evenly spaced intervals across a continuous
ii) Quantizing: The amplitude of each sample is rounded up or
down to the nearest discrete level.
iii) Coding: “Each of the amplitude levels . . . will be represented
with a given symbol composed of a set of binary values of 1 and 0
(a.k.a. bits) . . . called a binary group or binary word.

“Aliasing Effects: Neglecting the frequency at which a sampled signal
changes over time and subsampling it could result in the appearance of
undesired artifacts known as aliasing effects. The most obvious example
of an aliasing effect is the impression one has in Western movies that
stagecoach wheels rotate backwards. The technique of motion
reproduction in movie-making is based on a temporal sampling of the
action that takes place in front of the lens. The action is sampled with a
frequency of 24 pictures per second, which is far below the rotational
frequency of the wheels. Consequently, such a subsampling produces a
visible aliasing effect of backward rotation of the wheels. Namely,
between two samples (two frames) the wheels have achieved more than
one full revolution and the second sample (frame) appears to show the
wheel in a position that precedes the one captured in the first frame.”

Digital Standards Conversion:
i) Line length;
ii) Number of lines (including their repositioning since the lines in
two scanning systems have different geometrical positions on the
iii) Number of fields (and also in a given temporal sampling, since
the movement of an object in front of the camera will be portrayed
with 50 pictures per second in one case and 60 pictures per second
in the other).
Digital Standards Conversion:
i) Line length horizontal conversion;

“ . . . with the adoption of Recommendation 601, the digitization of
television progressed at a very fast pace. This brought three
industries much closer together and led to one of the most
important events in present-day electronics the convergence of
television, telecom, and computer technologies into one complex
entity known today as communication and information
technologies.” (Todorovic, p. 70)
“Convergence means that the same techniques can be used in different
areas, the same transport channels can carry any sort of content, and a
