  World Analogue Television Standards and Waveforms
The most basic difference between television standards is the number of lines per field and the number of fields per second, as determined by the line and field scanning frequencies.
An additional effect is produced because many television cameras and telecine units employ a technique called 'contours out of green' in which the the waveforms used for horizontal and vertical aperture correction are derived not from the luminance signal obtained by matrixing the three colour channels, but from the green channel alone.
The art of radio transmission was quite mature at the time of the introduction of television, but to transmit the vast bandwidth of a video signal (one thousand times wider than an audio signal) required carrier frequencies of an order of magnitude higher than those that had been used previously for broadcast purposes.

He brought a relationship-oriented, humorously vain persona honed in vaudeville, radio, and film to television in 1950, starring in his own television series from that year until 1965.
Benny played a fictional version of himself, Jack Benny the television star, and the program often revolved around preparation for the next week's show--involving interactions between Benny and a regular stable of characters that included the program's announcer, Don Wilson, and its resident crooner, Dennis Day.
He returned to television from time to time thereafter to star in additional specials but never dominated American ratings as he had in the 1950s, when he spent several years in the Neilsen top-20s and garnered Emmy awards year after year.

Until the fragmentation of the television audience due to cable in the 1980s, TV was always considered a "zero sum" industry: that is, for one network to increase in the ratings, another would have to lose.
If the object of importance in television studies is the entire schedule, and not individual programs, then the programmer of a television network is equivalent to the director of a film: that person responsible for the overall "vision" of a network’s product.
