With progressive scan, the entire image is written at one time, rather than being split into two, as happens with an interlaced image
. The result is less artifacts and a crisp, true-to-life image.
ColorStream, unlike ColorStream Pro, delivers an interlaced image
-- instead of 480 lines of resolution every 60 seconds, it delivers 240.
- An image that is first displayed in the browser at a low resolution, and then in successively higher resolutions, until the whole image has been downloaded.
The 12-bit image processing engine of the XCM-240 is also designed to provide minimal delay and eliminate spatial resolution errors caused by interlaced images
, Osee concluded.
In this way, the interlaced images
are exactly in register with the lenses due to the fact that these images are generated through and with help of the lens array itself
The technical challenge for display manufacturers is how to convert the 440 (w) x 484 (h) interlaced images
of legacy NTSC (480i) into high-quality content for display on expensive, flat-panel HDTVs.
