Analog television

Analogue television describes an analogue transmission of television programmes. In Germany, an analogue television picture at a frame rate of 50 Hz consists of a sequence of 25 transmitted frames per second, which are further broken down into 625 lines each. Images and sounds are transmitted in waves in the form of many status messages. Analogue television has now been almost completely replaced by digital reception paths.
