I am doing a math homework but I'm not understanding one part of the question. What would be the 32 intensity values in following question:
Suppose that a digitized TV picture is to be transmitted from a source that uses a matrix 480x500 pictures elements (pixels), where each pixel can take on one of 32 intensity values. Assume that 30 pictures are sent per second. Find the source rate R (bps)
I have found the answer here but I'm struggling figure out what does intensity values mean.
