umm I think you're a little confused, the patterns you see on tv screens
(the fanous moire effects) are created by the way
information is delivered to the screen. Under certain circunstances the
Lu¡ma and chroma signals engage into mutual interference and you get those
patters (if I don't recall badly from my work on Scitex it was because the
signals became too similar). It's more clearly visible on actual DV cams ..
try pointing to something that has bands of two alternate colours... you'll
get a nice moire.

See ya alll
