 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.

Television studies is the relatively recent, aspirationally disciplinary name given to the academic study of television.
The "television" of television studies is a relatively new phenomenon, just as many of the key television scholars are employed in departments of sociology, politics, communication arts, speech, theatre, media and film studies.

As demonstrated by television scholar Julie D'Acci's outstanding study Defining Women: Television and the Case of Cagney and Lacey, the history of Cagney and Lacey provides a textbook case illustrating many issues pervasive in the U.S. television industry as well as that industry's complicated relationship to social and cultural issues.
Foster, who had played a lesbian in an earlier television role, was cited as "masculine" and "aggressive," and after considerable argument CBS threatened to cancel the series, made Foster's removal and replacement a condition of continuing the show, and the fall 1982 season began with Sharon Gless, presumably more conventionally feminine and heterosexual, portraying Cagney.
The generic modifications were intertwined with rather conventional police matters, and the sense of strangeness caused by the gender shift was combined with the familiarity of crime drama.

Television was one of the most creative bands to emerge from New York's punk scene of the mid-'70s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary.
