Overview

What do we measure and why? Peter Hodges explains the answer to this question in approachable language and with clear illustrations. Newcomers to the video industry, as well as those already established, will find this uniquely readable guide to the basics of a complex subject. Building on the success of the two previous editions of this popular title and covering both analog and digital video, the third edition includes new sections on audio measurement, high definition video, and innovative techniques of test and measurement.

Audience: Video and audio engineers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Those involved in video recording, distribution, processing or replay will find this book an invaluable reference tool on all aspects of video signal measurement and diagnosis...Video is often seen as a black art - best left to "those who know". Hodges, however, has dispelled much of the mystery about the subject in this well-written, copiously illustrated book and it is well worth the shelf space." - Lighting and Sound International
