IEEE 746-1984

IEEE Standard for Performance Measurements of A/D and D/A Converters for PCM Television Video Circuits

This standard describes methods for measuring there performance of uniformly coded analog-to-digital (A/D) converters and digital-to-analog (D/A) converters for pulse code modulation (PSM) television video signals. Excluded are A/D and D/A converters that employ nonlinear processes for bit reduction television circuits, as for example, sub-Nyquist encoding, differential PCM, transform coders, etc. This standard is intended primarily for CCIR System M, 525-line/60-field television circuits. The performance to be measured should be relevant to the subjective quality of the television picture. Measurements not related to the quality of the video signal are excluded from this standard. Where possible, television type test signals are used to accommodate clamping circuits in the converters.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
