scan rate

(Science: microscopy) The number of horizontal-scan lines per frame and vertical scans per second that are repeated in video, for example, 525/60, 625/50. In 525/60, 2: 1 interlaced video, the V scan is repeated at the field rate (which is half of the frame rate for 2: 1 interlaced video) so that 525 H scans take place 30 times a second. The H-scan rate is therefore 525 x 30 = 15.75 kHz. With 525/60, 1: 1 interlace, the H-scan rate would be twice this value.
