Analog television

Analog television refers to the analog transmission of TV programmes. In Germany, an analog television image transmitted at a frame rate of 50 Hz consists of a series of 25 individual images per second, which are further broken down into 625 lines. Images and sound are transmitted in wave form as multiple status signals. In Germany, analog television signals are only still transmitted via cable. Only digital signals are transmitted at the reception levels of terrestrial, satellite and IPTV.
