In television terms systems engineering embraces the design and implementation of the electronics system which supports the production processes. However, in order to discuss systems engineering in a meaningful manner in a field which is as yet virtually undefined, it is first necessary to outline in general terms an operational specification for the electronic system and also define the features of the digital techniques to be used in designing the system. It is desirable that the operational specification should be sufficiently extensive to enable any shortcomings in the proposed digital parameters to be fully explored.
