1. Brief Introduction
Terms and Definitions
Term and Definitions
The following terms and definitions are used throughout this guide.
 “ASCII”: American Standard for Information Interchange. The standard
code consisting of 7-bit coded characters (8 bits including parity check)
used to exchange information between data processing systems, data
communication systems, and associated equipment. The ASCII set
contains control characters and graphic characters.
 “Aspect ratio”: The relationship of the horizontal dimension to the
vertical dimension of an image. In viewing screens, standard TV is 4:3,
or 1.33:1; HDTV is 16:9, or 1.78:1. Sometimes the ―
:1‖ is implicit,
making TV = 1.33 and HDTV = 1.78.
 “AV”: Audio visual or audio video.
 A “Background” is an unscaled source, typically originating from a
computer. A background source appears at the system’s lowest priority
— visually in back of all other sources.
 “Baudrate”: Named of J.M.E. Baudot, the inventor of the Baudot
telegraph code. The number of the electrical oscillations per second,
called baud rate. Related to, but not the same as, transfer rate in bits
per second (bps).
 “Blackburst”: The video waveform without the video elements. It
includes the vertical sync, horizontal sync, and the chroma burst
information. Blackburst is used to synchronize video equipment to
align the video output. One signal is normally used to set up an entire
video system or facility. Sometimes it is called House sync.
 “BNC”: Bayonet Neill-Concelman. A cable connector used extensively
in television and named for its inventors. A cylindrical bayonet
connector that operates with a twist-locking motion. To make the
connection, align the two curved grooves in the collar of the male
connector with the two projections on the outside of the female collar,
push, and twist. This allows the connector to lock into place without
tools.
 “Brightness”: Usually refers to the amount or intensity of video light
produced on a screen without regard to color. Sometimes called ―
black
level.
 ―
CAT 5‖: Category 5. Describes the network cabling standard that
consists of four unshielded twisted pairs of copper wire terminated by
RJ-45 connectors. CAT 5 cabling supports data rates up to 100 Mbps.
CAT 5 is based on the EIA/TIA 568 Commercial Building
Telecommunications Wiring Standard.
 “Color bars”: A standard test pattern of several basic colors (white,
yellow, cyan, green, magenta, red, blue, and black) as a reference for
system alignment and testing. In NTSC video, the most commonly
VENUS X2
User Manual

1. Brief Introduction
Terms and Definitions
 Used color bars are the SMPTE standard color bars. In PAL video, the
most commonly used color bars are eight full field bars. In the
computer, the most commonly used color bars are two rows of
reversed color bars.
 “Color burst”: In color TV systems, a burst of sub carrier frequency
located on the back porch of the composite video signal. This serves
as a color synchronizing signal to establish a frequency and phase
reference for the chroma signal. Color burst is 3.58 MHz for NTSC and
4.43 MHz for PAL.
 “Color temperature”: The color quality, expressed in degrees Kelvin
(K), of a light source. The higher the color temperature, the bluer the
light. The lower the temperature, the redder the light. Benchmark color
temperature for the A/V industry includes 5000°K, 6500°K, and
9000°K.
 “Contrast ratio”: The radio of the high light output level divided by the
low light output level. In theory, the contrast radio of the television
system should be at least 100:1, if not 300:1. In reality, there are
several limitations. In the CRT, light from adjacent elements
contaminate the area of each element. Room ambient light will
contaminate the light emitted from the CRT. Well-controlled viewing
conditions should yield a practical contrast ratio of 30:1 to 50:1.
 “DVI”: Digital Visual Interface. The digital video connectivity standard
that was developed by DDWG (Digital Display Work Group). This
connection standard offers two different connectors: one with 24 pins
that handles digital video signals only, and one with 29 pins that
handles both digital and analog video.
 “EDID”: Extended Display Identification Data – EDID is a data structure
used to communicate video display information, including native
resolution and vertical interval refresh rate requirements, to a source
device. The source device will then output the optimal video format for
the display based on the provided EDID data, ensuring proper video
image quality. This communication takes place over the DDC –
Display Data Channel.
 “Ethernet”: A Local Area Network (LAN) standard officially known as
IEEE 802.3. Ethernet and other LAN technologies are used for
interconnecting computers, printers, workstations, terminals, servers,
etc. within the same building or campus. Ethernet operates over
twisted pair and over coaxial cable at speeds starting at 10Mbps. For
LAN interconnectivity, Ethernet is physical link and data link protocol
reflecting the two lowest layers of the OSI Reference Model.
 “Frame”: In interlaced video, a frame is one complete picture. A video
frame is made up of two fields, or two sets of interlaced lines. In a film,
a frame is one still picture of a series that makes up a motion picture.

1. Brief Introduction
Terms and Definitions
 “Gamma”: The light output of a CRT is not linear with respect to the
voltage input. The difference between what you should have and what
is actually output is known as gamma.
 “HDMI” - High – Definition Multimedia Interface: An interface used
primarily in consumer electronics for the transmission of
uncompressed high definition video, up to 8 channels of audio, and
control signals, over a single cable. HDMI is the de facto standard for
HDTV displays, Blu-ray Disc players, and other HDTV electronics.
Introduced in 2003, the HDMI specification has gone through several
revisions.
 “HDSDI”: The high-definition version of SDI specified in SMPTE-292M.
This signal standard transmits audio and video with 10 bit depth and
4:2:2 color quantization over a single coaxial cable with a data rate of
1.485 Gbit/second. Multiple video resolutions exist including
progressive 1280x720 and interlaced 1920x1080 resolutions. Up to 32
audio signals are carried in the ancillary data.
 “JPEG” (Joint photographic Expects Group): Commonly used
method of loss compression for photographic images using a discreet
cosine transfer function. The degree of compression can be adjusted,
allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality.
JPEG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss
in image quality. Produces blocking artifacts.
 “MPEG”: Motion Picture Expect Group. A standard committee under
the auspices of the International Standards Organization working on
algorithm standards that allows digital compression, storage and
transmission of moving image information such as motion video,
CD-quality audio, and control data at CD-ROM bandwidth. The MPEG
algorithm provides inter-frame compression of video images and can
have an effective compression rate of 100:1 to 200:1.
 “NTSC”: The color video standard used in North America and some
other parts of the world created by the National Television Standards
Committee in the 1950s. A color signal must be compatible with
black-and-white TV sets. NTSC utilizes an interlaced video signals,
525 lines of resolution with a refresh rate of 60 fields per second (60
Hz). Each frame is comprised of two fields of 262.5 lines each, running
at an effective rate of 30 frames per second.
 “PAL”: Phase Alternate Line. A television standard in which the phase
of the color carrier is alternated from line to line. It takes four full
pictures (8 fields) for the color-to-horizontal phase relationship to
return to the reference point. This alternation helps cancel out phase
errors. For this reason, the hue control is not needed on a PAL TV set.
PAL, in many transmission forms, is widely used in Western Europe,
Australia, Africa, the Middle East, and Micronesia. PAL uses 625-line,

50-filed (25 fps) composite color transmission system.
“Operator”: Refers to the person who uses the system.
“PIP”: Picture-in-Picture. A small picture within a larger picture created
by scaling down one of the images to make it smaller. Each picture
requires a separate video source such as a camera, VCR, or
computer. Other forms of PIP displays include Picture-by-Picture
(PBP) and Picture-with-Picture (PWP), which are commonly used with
16:9 aspect display devices. PBP and PWP image formats require a
separate scaler for each video window.
“Polarity”: The positive and negative orientation of a signal. Polarity
usually refers to the direction or a level with respect to a reference (e.g.
positive sync polarity means that sync occurs when the signal is going
in the positive direction).
“RJ-45”: Registered Jack-45. A connector similar to a telephone
connector that holds up to eight wires used for connecting Ethernet
devices.
―
RS-232”: An Electronic Industries Association (EIA) serial digital
interface standard specifying the characteristics of the communication
path between two devices using either DB-9 or DB-25 connectors.
This standard is used for relatively short-range communication and
does not specify balanced control lines. RS-232 is a serial control
standard with a set number of conductors, data rate, word length, and
type of connector to be used. The standard specifies component
connection standards with regard to the computer interface. It is also
called RS-232-C, which is the third version of the RS-232 standard,
and is functionally identical to the CCITT V.24 standard.
“Saturation”: Chroma, chroma gain. The intensity of the color, or the
extent to which a given color in any image is free from white. The less
white in a color, the truer the color or the greater its saturation. On a
display device, the color control adjusts the saturation. Not to be
confused with the brightness, saturation is the amount of pigment in a
color, and not the intensity. Low saturation is like adding white to the
color. For example, a low-saturated red looks pink.
“Scaling”: A conversion of a video or computer graphic signal from a
starting resolution to a new resolution. Scaling from one resolution to
another is typically done to optimize the signal for input to an image
processor, transmission path or to improve its quality when presented
on a particular display.
“SDI”: Serial Digital Interface. The standard based on a 270 Mbps
transfer rate. This is a 10-bit, scrambled, polarity independent
interface with common scrambling for both component ITU-R 601 and
composite digital video and four channels of (embedded) digital audio.
“Seamless Switching”: A feature found on many video switchers. This

feature causes the switcher to wait until the vertical interval to switch.
This avoids a glitch (temporary scrambling) which normally is seen
when switching between sources.
“SMPTE”: Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. A global
organization, based in the United States that sets standards for base
band visual communications. This includes film as well as video and
television standards.
“S-Video”: A composite video signal separated into the luma (―
Y‖ is for
luma, or black and white information; brightness) and the chroma (―
C‖
is an abbreviation for chroma, or color information).
“Sync”: Synchronization. In video, sync is a means of controlling the
timing of an event with respect to other events. This is accomplished
with timing pulses to insure that each step in a process occurs at the
correct time. For example, horizontal sync determines exactly when to
begin each horizontal scan line. Vertical sync determines when the
image is to be refreshed to start a new field or frame. There are many
other types of sync in video system. (Also known as ―
sync signal‖ or
―
sync pulse.‖)
“TCP/IP”: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The
communication protocol of the Internet. Computers and devices with
direct access to the Internet are provided with a copy of the TCP/IP
program to allow them to send and receive information in an
understandable form.
“USB”: Universal Serial Bus. USB was developed by seven PC and
telecom industry leaders (Compaq, DEC, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, NEC,
and Northern Telecom). The goal was easy plug-and-play expansion
outside the box, requiring no additional circuit cards. Up to 127
external computer devices may be added through a USB hub, which
may be conveniently located in a keyboard or monitor. USB devices
can be attached or detached without removing computer power. The
number of devices being designed for USB continues to grow, from
keyboards, mice, and printers to scanners, digital cameras, and ZIP
drives.
“VESA”: Video Electronics Standards Association. A nonprofit number
organization dedicated to facilitating and promoting personal computer
graphics through improved standards for the benefit of the end-user.
www.vesa.org
“VGA”: Video Graphics Array. Introduced by IBM in 1987, VGA is an
analog signal with TTL level separate horizontal and vertical sync. The
video outputs to a 15-pin HD connector and has a horizontal scan
frequency of 31.5 kHz and vertical frequency of 70 Hz (Mode 1, 2) and
60 Hz (Mode 3). The signal is non-interlaced in modes 1, 2, and 3 and
interlaced when using the 8514/A card (35.5 kHz, 86 Hz) in mode 4. It
