Progressive Video Output PAL/NTSC

Progressive Scan or "de-interlaced" describes the scanning progress used on products that feature it. Progressive Scan DVD requires a high scanning frequency display device such as a plasma screen or projector. An interlaced picture is divided into two halves with each of the alternate lines used to create a "field" It has to be split in to two on an interlace none progressive display because it can only show half the picture at each pass of the electron gun, this is an "interlaced" picture. In next pass of the gun, it will draw the alternate line and repeat the scan 50 or 60 times per second depending if it's NTSC or PAL This produces visible dark scanning lines "interlaced" between the brighter lines Progressive scan shows both fields in one pass, so providing a smoother and more accurate picture. Progressive Scan requires special connections such as HDMI or Component Etc... A standard signal is defined as 480i (576i for PAL) or 480p (576p For PAL) if it's de-interlaced progressive scan Progressive Scan DVD players can also carry out 3:2 Pull down reconstruction
