Definitions for "gain"
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.

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.
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 term used in a PID loop calculation. It is the "P" in PID, since gain is the inverse of proportional band. Gain acts directly on the change in error since the last scan.
This is another way of expressing the "P" part of the PID controller. GAIN = 100/(Proportional Band). The more gain a controller has the faster the loop response and more oscillatory the process.
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.)

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.
