Picture in Picture.
Distance that separates 2 pixels in a display.
Abbreviation for picture element. A pixel is the smallest element (Black and White or Color) that makes up an image. Pixels make up lines and columns and define the resolution of the picture. E.g. XGA = 1024 x 768 = 1024 pixels x 768 lines = 786432 pixels per image.
Positive or Negative sign of a signal.
