The following timing diagram indicates a device with a single video output. The device can be fully scanned in 2,630 clock cycles (38 inactive clock cycles plus 2,592 clock cycles) for the video signal.

Timing Diagram 1 video output

In the example, some amount of overscan can be seen. Since this device uses a global shutter, the overscan period will expose the sensor elements for the next readout cycle.

The second diagram is the same device except that the user has selected 300 dpi resolution mode. In this case, it will require 38 + 1296 clock cycles to read the sensor fully.
