Definition: Type of CCD design which each cell consists of a light-accepting area and an adjacent storage area: the charge from the light-accepting area can be shunted to the storage area to be read allowing the light-accepting area to 'flushed' of charge to take the next reading. * This is the basis of the video chip, as it allows very rapid reading and refreshment of each pixel. * Also widely used in consumer and prosumer-grade digital cameras where there is obviously no need for a mechanical shutter.
