Should that be 2-fields? Or is this yet another "standard" for NTSC?

It's 2 fields per image, but its referred to as 4 fields because it takes 4 fields to make up an entire colorframe. The colorframe is like the complete cycle of the B&W and color information.

Just a bit of trivia, the Video Toaster framestores work in colorframes, hence storing 4 fields (2 frames) of data. If you do a framegrab, you actually are grabbing 1/15th of a second's worth of motion. The flyer edits down to 2 frames accuracy as well.

Also, how much did the book cost?  It's getting really hard to find
good used books on video/tv tech...

$47.96, but it came with a CD (with stuff really only for computer engineers and programmers). It's almost completely digitally oriented now, so I doubt I'll get the 3rd volume when it comes out. I'm very interested in digital video, but for the most part it's way over my head for my current involvement in video production and streaming media to need the total state of the art.
