Summary

Summary

Broadcast Technology Update provides broadcast students and professionals with a detailed overview of the latest developments in all areas of broadcast production technology. Each chapter opens with an introduction and technical description, followed by sections providing the history, recent developments, current status, and factors to watch regarding the technology. Each chapter in this edited text will be written by an expert in the subject area, using a standard organizational structure for consistency throughout the work. In order to keep the book fresh and the information current, users of the book will be invited to turn to a companion website which will provide regular updates. As a supplement to mainstream production texts, this book will be invaluable for keeping students up to date with evolving technologies in order to better prepare them for employment.
