Not for me... 2 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for an introduction to digital video that would explain basic concepts without assuming an engineering background. In other words, I wanted to know what composite video is and how color is encoded in the video signal, but without timing diagrams and math. This is not that book. It might be an "introduction" for a video engineer, but not for a standard computer user. Had to return it.
