6 nm for blue. 4. To avoid variation in the laser output levels, each beam was passed though an acoustic-optical modulator with feedback control. The beams then were combined by dichroic mirrors and scanned mechanically. Horizontal scanning was provided by a 25-sided mirror, rotating at such a high speed (81,000 rpm) as to require aerostatic bearings. This speed was required to scan at 1125 lines, 30 frames/s, with 25 mirror facets. The deflected beam was passed through relay lenses to another mirror mounted on a galvanometer movement, which introduced the vertical scanning.

The primary movers in EU95 were the hardware manufacturers Bosch, Philips, and Thomson. The aim of the Eureka project was to define a 50 Hz HDTV standard for submis- 18 Chapter One sion to the plenary assembly of the CCIR in 1990. The work carried out under this effort involved defining production, transmission, recording, and projection systems that would bring high-definition pictures into viewers’ homes. Supporters of the 1125/60 system also were planning to present their standard to the CCIR in 1990 for endorsement.

The choice of 1125 lines also was justified by the existing operating standards. The midpoint between 525 and 625 lines is 575 lines. Twice that number would correspond to 1150 lines for a midpoint HDTV system. This even number of lines could not produce alternate-line interlacing, then thought to be essential in any scanning standard. The nearest odd number having a common factor with 525 and 625 was the NHK choice: 1125 lines. The common factor—25—would make line-rate transcoding among the NHK, NTSC, and PAL/SECAM systems comparatively simple.
