Standard Handbook of Video and Television Engineering

Since its publication in February of 2000, the Standard Handbook of Video and Television Engineering has becomes its field's standard reference, the one book every engineer and technician in broadcasting needs to own. By carefully tracking the field's movement from monolithic broadcast stations into a complex web of smaller stations and video producers, this book has stayed relevant while its competition has fallen by the wayside. This new edition features over 50% new material, most crucially multiple chapters on video networking technologies, new digital television and data broadcast standards (for both the US and Europe), and updates on every aspect of video and broadcast equipment and protocols.
