A Broadcast Engineering Tutorial for Non-Engineers, Third Edition Reviews
This book is valuable for any non-engineer wanting to get up to speed on understanding a lot of forms of electronic communications. It obviously covers broadcast, but also new video technologies and audio/radio. The author does a great job laying a historical foundation of the different medias and then brings it all current. I found it to be a valuable read. This book is so good, that after my wife sold my copy during a garage sale, I later went out and purchased another copy to have in my library.
Graham Jones is a well respected leader in the industry and this book is very accurate and well written.
Item as expected!
Good basic understanding of broadcast engineering. Used for college and outside of college life. Helpful to learn the lingo when talking with others in the field.
This book is a good introduction book. It is easy to read and understand. The concepts are basic and give you a good base to move on to a more in-depth study of Broacast Engineering.
I was expecting a little bit of how-to in this book but it definitely is not that. It basically is an expanded dictionary of terms used in the broadcast industry. It includes a few diagrams such as a flow chart of Master Control. Meant for total outsiders to the industry. Best suited for a broadcast school where a person has no idea what broadcasting is all about.
I teach Radio/Television Broadcasting (along with being Director of Engineering, CMAT) at a State University. I read this book and many others trying to find the perfect book to use in the B'cast Engineering courses I teach here. This book is by far the best I've ever seen for the beginner to novice Engineer. I started my B'cast career in 1978 -- I wish this book would have been around then, or even during my first 5 years!!! It's written in simple terms making it easy to understand, yet completely covers the subject to the most technical aspects. If you're majoring in Communications and have an eye on the technical side, GET THIS BOOK!
