From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  interlacing
  
     1.  A video display system which builds an image
     on the VDU in two phases, known as "fields", consisting of
     even and odd horizontal lines.
  
     The complete image (a "frame") is created by scanning an
     electron beam horizontally across the screen, starting at the
     top and moving down after each horizontal scan until the
     bottom of the screen is reached, at which point the scan
     starts again at the top.  On an interlaced display, even
     numbered scan lines are displayed in the first field and
     then odd numbered lines in the second field.
  
     For a given screen resolution, refresh rate (frames per
     second) and phosphor persistence, interlacing reduces
     flicker because the top and bottom of the screen are redrawn
     twice as often as if the scan simply proceded from top to
     bottom in a single vertical sweep.
  
     2.  progressive coding.
