how are audio and video different from other media? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:25, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Usage of the word[edit]

What's still critically missing is when the term was coined and then adopted into general usage. I'm pretty sure that people still simply said "TV" or "television" long into the 1970s. Heck, even today many people still call it a "film" when it's actually a video clip! -- (talk) 09:03, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

To my surprise, I've now come upon an early TV series called Captain Video and His Video Rangers that was broadcast on DuMont since 1949. According to the series's German article, Cpt. Video derived his name from his so-called opticon scillometer, which was a television set that he used to oversee the activities of all his agents on earth. -- (talk) 09:28, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Video literally means "I see", look at Wiktionary — Preceding unsigned comment added by B0ef (talkcontribs) 19:05, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Component video[edit]

Below the image of the component connector it says: "Component video (3-channel RGB)". Isn't it supposed to be 1 channel for luminance and 2 channels for chrominance?--Loquetudigas (talk) 14:55, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
There are multiple ways to do analog component video. RGB is the original one, and is the way video originates off the prism block in a three chip camera. The most popular varian is Y, R-Y, B-Y, also sometimes called Betacam component. It's a more bandwidth efficient way for transmitting component video. see StevenBradford (talk) 05:40, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Spherical Volumetric Video[edit]

This article mentions neither spherical nor volumetric. WHY?? oh, why?


Why isn't Divx, the failed Circuit City format that came out in the late 1990s and was a rental vehicle for movies, not included here? If I don't get a good reason, I'll add it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rricci428 (talkcontribs) 06:41, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
