The High-Resolution Return-Beam Vidicon with Electrical Input
The 4½-in. return-beam vidicon (RBV) can be operated in either a slow-scan, single-frame readout mode or a fast-scan, multiple-frame readout mode. The fast-scan readout mode provides a high-quality, flickerless readout for display to a human observer in a manner similar to that employed in commercial television. This mode can be enhanced by selective electronic magnification of the information by underscanning the target. Typical display monitor parameters would include 2000 × 2000 tv line resolution. With 3:1 electronic magnification, an equivalent of 6000 × 6000 tv lines would be displayed.
