Product Description

Review

‘The 4th Edition, published post the digitalization of TV with ATSC transmissions, presents an unprecedented overview of the new world of broadcasting with contemporary technologies being brought to the fore with amazing clarity. Retaining broadcasting as its core theme, it brings you up to speed with the entire chain involved―acquisition, production, broadcasting and streaming. A must-read for all professionals.’ – Amitabh Kumar, Zee Network, India

‘This book is a great source for quickly finding what a particular broadcast-related acronym stands for. Think of this text as a relief valve that lets an interested reader reasonably drink from a high-pressure technical information water main.’ – Dane Ericksen, Hammett & Edison, Inc., USA

‘This book is a must-have for all those in the broadcast industry and reads like a well-written operating manual for your broadcast operation. Skip Pizzi is one of those rare gems―a polymath who can translate complex concepts to the lay person. His deep knowledge allows him to analyze the past and provide a glimpse into what's possible in the future.’ - Jennifer Ferro, President/General Manager, KCRW 89.9, USA

HASH(0x92361648) out of 5 stars A superb explanation of essential concepts for a reader in good faith 12 May 2014
By Edward Coltman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written as simply as can be, but not simplified beyond the limits of accuracy. Like any good tutorial, though, this text assumes good faith from a reader, that he or she will not simply dismiss its subject as unnecessary to understand.

Good for beginners.
