Color Bars

Early Television

The image is a digital photograph of a ProScan model PS27153
displaying a color bar signal from a laser disk played by a Sony MDP-455. Following its musical
offering, A&E home video laser disk, "Motzart: The Requiem From Sarajevo" (ID3462AN), has a
one-minute recording of the NTSC color bar signal as its chapter 17.

Since a picture is worth at least 1k words, here's a bargain -- color bar theory from
The WordLess Dictionary of Electricity and Electronics.
