This standard is intended to clarify or augment existing standards where range applications are unique. Electrical performance standards for standard and high resolution monochrome and for color closed circuit television equipment are referred to in this document. These standards are those adopted by industry and associated professional groups which are applicable to test range use and are consistent with the rapidly developing state of the art. In addition, engineering considerations and practices used for automatic insertion of data into the video format and consequent retrieval for use are outlined. The purpose of this document is to provide users of standard and high resolution monochrome and standard color closed circuit television equipment with the criteria essential for interchange and compatibility of equipment, tape recordings and live signals. These criteria are intended to apply not only to locally generated signals that is, signals generated by the camera itself or at a nearby point where control can be exercised over picture quality, but also to ensure compatibility for metric video application, where video tape recorders, video disc recorders and data insertion equipment are used.
