Jerry Whitaker is president of the consulting firm Technical Press.

A former editor-in-chief of Broadcast Engineering magazine, Whitaker resides in Morgan Hill, California.Blair Benson, deceased, was well known in the field for both this book and his Standard Handbook of Video and Television Engineering. Mr. Benson was a leader in audio and video system design and implementation for many decades, and an architect of the networked TV and radio systems we enjoy today.

K. BLAIR BENSON (deceased) was an engineering consultant and one of the world's most renowed television engineers. Beginning his career as an electrical engineer with General Electric, he joined the Columbia Broadcasting System Television Network as a senior project engineer. From 1961 through 1966 he was responsible for the engineering design and installation of the CBS Television Network New York Broadcasting Center, a project that introduced many new techniques and equipment designs to broadcasting. He advanced to become vice president of technical development of CBS Electronics Video Recording Division. He later worked for Goldmark Communications as vice president of engineering and technical operations.

A senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics and a Fellow of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, he served on numerous engineering committees for both societies and for various terms as SMPTE Governor, television affairs vice president, and editorial vice president. He wrote more than 40 scientific and technical papers on various aspects of television technology. In addition, he was editor of four McGraw-Hill handbooks: the original edition of this TELEVISION ENGINEERING HANDBOOK, the AUDIO ENGINEERING HANDBOOK, the TELEVISION AND AUDIO HANDBOOK FOR ENGINEERS AND TECHNICIANS, and HDTV: ADVANCED TELEVISION FOR THE 1990s.
