'NTSC Video [OT][EE]'

Hi all,

Could someone point me to a good online reference on NTSC video?

Also, could someone please tell me if there is a way to determine which
field is odd and which is even? From the (poorly written) reference I am
currently looking at, it looks as if the vertical sync is the same for
both the odd and even fields so that when you assemble the frame, you
don't know which field belongs to which frame (and, therefore, you odn't
know which is odd and which is even).

Thanks,

Sean

Sean,

I don't have a reference, but the two fields are very different.  There are many
chips out there which will provide A/B differentiation to you.  It can be done
with a PIC, but it's LOTS easier to let a chip do it for you.

Try any of the Elantec video IC data sheets, start with the EL4583 sync
separator.  I think you'll find that it gives a good explanation of the
basic waveform of the video signal with diagrams relating it to the
output of the chip.  http://www.elantec.com/pages/products_video.html

If you use a sync separator chip as above you have a digital output
indicating which field is which.  From the raw video waveform the
difference between fields can be worked out from the relationship
between the horizontal sync. pulses and the vertical sync. pulse during
the vertical blanking interval.  See the timing diagrams in the above
data sheet.

For a detailed description of a simple video digitizing circuit built
with discrete logic visit http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucapwas/video.html.
Not sure if there are low cost single chips for timing/digitisation

Kayode.

HI!, take a look at http://I.am/thekingofpic
there are a couple of links on that page with very nice video reference.

I'm at work now, I don't have the digital camera here but late at night I
can send you a image of how looks both fields on the Scope.
you will have to wait, sorry :-)

see you.
