About the book

  1. Description
  2. Content

Description

‘Professional Audio and Video’ introduces some of the basic technical aspects and issues of media production. It will primarily be focused on the technology that underpins audio-visual productions, namely video, TV, and radio. It is designed to be of use to students studying a variety of media subjects including audio production, videography, television production and media streaming. The book is split into three parts, Acquisition, Processing and Delivery. Within ‘acquisition’ the student is introduced to the processes behind audio-visual media capture and the basics of lighting. ‘Processing’ covers the basics on compression, (both audio and image), as well as a basic understanding of power, signals and measurement. Finally ‘delivery’ covers the storage and emission of media content. Where possible, processes are described and illustrated with diagrams and graphs, to explain the basic concepts that will enable students to understand how to get the best from their technical equipment.
