Paper Abstract

This paper briefly describes a Proposed Standard for Monochrome Television Cameras for Courtroom Use. In this brief description the physical parameters (size, weight, marking, user information, etc.) are ignored, and the operational parapeters (format, sync signal, power requirements, connections, etc.) are mentioned only briefly. The performance parameters, 1) relative spectral response, 2) total response, 3) signal-to-noise ratio, 4) limiting resolution, 5) contrast transfer function, 6) shading and 7) geometric distortion, are described in some detail. Minimum acceptance levels and methods of evaluation are given for each of the performance parameters.
