The X10 Camera has a scanning rate of 525 lines and 60 frames/second, which is comparable to a standard television set. In order to produce an image, electron beams have to scan the entire frame of the image, going from left to right and top to bottom at an extremely rapid pace. When more lines are scanned, more detail is captured, thereby increasing the quality of the image. The frames per second is the rate at which a device can produce consecutive images. In this case, 60 consecutive images are produced per second which, in combination with the transmission rate of 525 lines, creates a high quality final image.
