An increase in value, as of an asset. opposite of loss.
The increase of electrical power in decibels.
The factor by which a device increases the amplitude of a signal. Negative gain will result in the attenuation of a signal.
The amount of level boost in an amplifier or audio system.
Convenient; suitable; direct; near; handy; dexterous; easy; profitable; cheap; respectable.
That which is gained, obtained, or acquired, as increase, profit, advantage, or benefit; -- opposed to loss.
The obtaining or amassing of profit or valuable possessions; acquisition; accumulation.
To get, as profit or advantage; to obtain or acquire by effort or labor; as, to gain a good living.
A square or beveled notch cut out of a girder, binding joist, or other timber which supports a floor beam, so as to receive the end of the floor beam.
1. Increase in money or property values over the carrying value of the property, received on the sale or exchange of that property. 2. A mortise, which is a recessed slot or a notch. 3. The cut made into the doorjamb to install the hinge plate to be set flush with the surface.
A beveled shoulder on the end of a mortised brace, for the purpose of giving additional resistance to the shoulder. To make progress. To make grooves or mortises in timber.
1. A notch or mortise, as in a beam or a wall, for a joist, girder or similar member. 2. The notch to set a hinge in a door or frame.
Measures the light-reflecting ability of a projection screen. The higher the number, the greater the amount of light reflected back to the viewer(s).
A measurement of the reflectivity of the screen. High gain screens were necessary for old projectors with low light output. However, teaming a high gain fabric with a contemporary projector will result in two major negatives - a narrow viewing angle and colour shift. Matte white (gain = 1.1) is best for contemporary projectors. See Screen Materials.
The amount by which a reflective screen (or surface of some sort) reflects light hitting it.
A measurement usually made perpendicular to screen center of the luminance transmitted by the screen, divided by the luminance radiating from the projector.
Feature on video cameras often utilized to boost overall video level in low-light conditions (see "noise"). Recent video cameras and HD cameras often offer "negative gain" to allow user to open iris thereby decreasing depth-of-field.
The system gain of a CCD camera tells you how many electrons are represented by each ADU. Gain is expressed in electrons/ADU. For example, a CCD camera with a gain of 1.3 converts 1.3 electrons into one ADU. So, if you were to measure a pixel value of 2500 ADU for some area of the image, that value corresponds to 2500 x 1.3 = 3250 electrons collected by that particular photosite. Equivalently, a camera with a gain of 2.5 would convert those same 3250 electrons into an ADU value of just 1300. This can be useful in calculations of optimum exposure times and photometric measurements. (Technically, most cameras add a 100 ADU pedestal, so ADU values are normally 100 less than measured.)
A method of adjusting a CCD sensor's sensitivity to light.
In digital cameras, system gain defines the relationship between the number of electrons acquired on the CCD and the analog-digital units (ADUs) generated.
To come off winner or victor in; to be successful in; to obtain by competition; as, to gain a battle; to gain a case at law; to gain a prize.
the advantageous quality of being beneficial
obtain advantages, such as points, etc.; "The home team was gaining ground"; "After defeating the Knicks, the Blazers pulled ahead of the Lakers in the battle for the number-one playoff berth in the Western Conference"
moving in the opposite direction of the skill you are performing. opposite of travelling
Travel arising from excessive displacement of the hips in initiation of somersault movements; e.g. travelling forwards in a back somersault. Carries same penalties from Execution Judge as "Travel".
Travel in the opposite direction to the rotation, eg. travelling forwards in a back somersault
a relative proposition
A measure of a student's exposure to content that is indexed in terms of level (AVG) in a course. The meaning of level is relative to the course itself. (ie, Gain is a segment of a CCC course that has been completed by not necessarily mastered.)
Global Aid Network (within CCC)
To make up a specified time during passage of a specified portion of the rally course. The gain time is subtracted from the time required to traverse the specified portion of the rally course at the given average speed. The specified portion of the course in which the gain is operative is a free zone.
To make up a specified time during passage of a specified distance. The gain time is subtracted from the time required at the given average speed to traverse the specified distance. The specified distance in which a gain is operative is a free zone.
Decrease the amount of time for passage of a specified distance by the specified amount of time. Where a gain is operative is a free zone.
