In terms of moving pictures, whether they be on computer video clips, or television broadcasts, or movies, or whatever, frame rate refers to rate at which still image frames are changed. Frame rate is usually measured in fps, frames per second. The higher the number the better.

What is the frame rate for a tv?

Frame rates vary depending on the video standard used. In North America and other areas that use NTSC as the standard definition color system, the standard frame rate is 29.97Hz. When the signal is interlaced (Standard definition, and 1080i in high definition) two fields are used to make a complete frame, so the field rate is 59.94Hz. High definition 720p is non interlaced, so the frame rate is 59.94Hz. In Europe, PAL is the color system and the frame rate is 25Hz, with a 50Hz field rate.

What best describes the time it takes the CRT electron beam to paint the screen from top to bottom in a monitor?

Refresh rate (most commonly the "vertical refresh rate", "vertical scan rate" for CRTs) is the number of times in a second that display hardware draws the data. This is distinct from the measure of frame rate in that the refresh rate includes the repeated drawing of identical frames, while frame rate measures how a video source can feed an entire frame of new data to a display. For example, most movie projectors advance from one frame to the next one 24 times each second. But each frame is illuminated two or three times before the next frame is projected using a shutter in front of its lamp. As a result, the movie projector runs at 24 frames per second, but has a 48 or 72 Hz refresh rate.

What is the correct frequency for a 1080p blu ray player?

The television frame or field frequency will vary according to the content. It is the content that defines the frequency and not the hardware it plays on. In Europe, the field rate for 1080i signals is 50Hz with the frame rate at 25Hz. For 1080p, the frame and field rate are normally both 50Hz In North America, the rates are 30Hz and 60Hz respectively. There are some other rates that might rarely be seen. Commercial film production uses a frame rate of 24Hz and sometimes video conversions will capture at a 24Hz frame rate. For an HD capture, the full description will be 1080p, 24. Similarly, in Europe, film is often converted to video at 25 frames per second by increasing the playback speed of the film. The resulting video can then be 1080p, 25. Many Bluray and DVD players will simply output the video at the frame rate that is stored on disc rather than converting it to different rates.

What type of interest is figured on a specific time frame?

What is the native resolution for 1080p?

1080 format uses a resolution of 1920 pixels wide by 1080 high. The "p" stands for progressive scan and indicates that a full frame is refreshed at a rate of 50, 59.94 or 60 frames per second. In rare cases, it may also use refresh rates of 24, 25, 29.97 or 30 frames per second. The frame rate depends on the source material and most monitors and televisions will display any frame rate that is received. North American television uses 29.97 or 59.94 frames per second while European signals are 25 or 50 frames per second. 24 frame is sometimes seen when a film is converted directly to video without any kind of frame rate conversion.
