Redirected from: motion video

Definition: full-motion video


Video transmission that changes the image 30 frames per second (30 fps). Motion pictures are run at 24 fps, which is the minimum frequency required to eliminate the perception of moving frames and make the images appear visually fluid to the eye.

The original video and TV specification was 30 interlaced frames per second, which is transmitted as 60 half frames per second. Digital video created in the computer can be displayed at varying frame rates, depending on the speed of the computer (see DTV). The slower the computer, the more jerky the movement. Contrast with freeze-frame video.
