It is a 3-dimensional Y-C separation filter for NTSC television signals. Conventional so-called 3-dimensional Y-C separation filters are actually the combination of horizontal 1-dimensional filter and adaptively switched temporal or vertical 1-dimensional filters, depending on still and the other for moving scenes. The proposed filter is a real 3-dimensional filter (composed of horizontal 1-dimensional filter and non-separable vertical-temporal 2-dimensional filter), and as a result crosscolor is very much suppressed even for slowly moving pictures. Mitsubishi developed its IC and named Super Digital Y/C Separation.
