The Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA; until 1997 Electronic Industries Association) was a standards and trade organization composed as an alliance of trade associations for electronics manufacturers in the United States.
The F connector (also F-type) is a coaxial RF connector commonly used for "over the air" terrestrial television, cable television and universally for satellite television and cable modems, usually with RG-6/U cable or, in older installations, with RG-59/U cable.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a proprietary audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed video data and compressed or uncompressed digital audio data from an HDMI-compliant source device, such as a display controller, to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device.
Information theory studies the quantification, storage, and communication of information.
JPEG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images, particularly for those images produced by digital photography.
Line level is the specified strength of an audio signal used to transmit analog sound between audio components such as CD and DVD players, television sets, audio amplifiers, and mixing consoles.
This is a list of physical RF and video connectors and related video signal standards.
In video, luma represents the brightness in an image (the "black-and-white" or achromatic portion of the image).
Luminance is a photometric measure of the luminous intensity per unit area of light travelling in a given direction.
The mini-DIN connectors are a family of multi-pin electrical connectors used in a variety of applications.
The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a working group of authorities that was formed by ISO and IEC to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission.
