The image you see on the television screen is refreshed – or “re-drawn” – from the top to the bottom with alternating horizontal passes of the cathode ray. The “scrolling bar” you see whenever you point your video camera at a tevelvision screen or CRT monitor is a result of the difference in scan/refresh rate from the monitor and your camera’s shutter speed…they have two slightly different rates. You can fix/minimize this by adjusting the shutter speed on you camera – some models have sepcific settings for television and computer monitor screens.
