Sorry Howard but this isn't quite true. The interlaced resolution is higher
than 540 lines. You may want to take a look for info on Kell Factor which
gives the perceived resolution. A value of 0.7 is normally used. This is the
whole reason for using interlace in the first place. Dig out a copy of
"Transmission and Display of Pictorial Infomation" by D.E. Pearson. This has
is a great  fundamentals book on spatio-temporal resolution and and
colorimetry for imaging. Plus Don was my PhD supervisor in the 70's before I
baled out and got into the grubby business of Television.
