Product description


Praise for the first edition:
'Satellite Newsgathering will become the Reference for anyone interested in SNG... It is a wonderful source of information and has the merit of going straight to the subject, being technically precise although very easy to understand. There are numerous pictures, photographs, diagrams, which make the reading a real pleasure.'
European Broadcasting Union Technical Review

'A most impressive book'
Sir Arthur C Clarke

'The complexity of a satellite newsgathering system could be a four-month long college course with a high tuition rate and an enrolment number so large you have to watch your professor on a TV screen. Jonathan Higgins might have saved the independent learner a few attendance point deductions by fitting it into one book.'
Satellite Broadband magazine

...... the Reference for anyone interested in SNG.
EBU Technical Review

'It is a wonderful source of information, technically precise although very easy to understand.'
EBU Techncial Review

'This book is nothing if not comprehensive. Ranging from a history of news communications through to the theory of satellite TV, operational systems and developments for the future...It is just as much about methodology and techniques; about organisation as well as operation. Written in a straightforward style - making this wide range of hard-to-digest- information remarkably palatable... there's nowhere else you'll find such an authoritative and exhaustive behind-the-scenes look at this fascinating world.'
What Satellite TV Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

SNG is the process that delivers 'live' and 'breaking' news to the viewer/listener as it happens. The focus of this book is the use of satellite uplinks for newsgathering (for both television and radio news reporting). Jonathan Higgins provides an insight into the technical and operational considerations in specifying and operating SNG systems around the world, the satisfaction faced in doing so successfully and the problems occasionally encountered.Jonathan Higgins is ideally placed to tackle this subject, having been deeply involved in the development of both truck-based and 'flyaway' SNG uplinks over the last decade and, in particular, DSNG uplinks for BBC News. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
