Great Info on Frame Mode vs. Progressive

There always seems to be questions on interlaced vs. progressive vs. frame mode video capture. What are the resolutions in each, compromises, etc.

Here is a terrific white paper (.pdf) from the Panasonic website on these modes. I sure learned something and I hope you will too.

Since it takes me forever to open a PDF file on my computer with 40 megs of RAM, how about giving me the bottom line? Thanks.

Its the same article by Steve Mullen that was passed around a while back. Still a good read for those who haven't seen it.

Sorry about the duplication. Hadn't seen the previous posts.

Here you go Frank

Progressive is better than Frame. But you knew that anyway.

Yes, I know the difference, and that progressive is a bit better than frame mode. Did you know that Frame mode was invented by Pana? Well, maybe not but they were the first company to put out a cam with frame mode. Also, not all frame mode is the same in the way of quality. :-((

My 2 DVL9500 cams have progressive scan 1/3" CCDs, with BIG 380K total pixels, BIG 360K video effective. :-))
