Overview

The switch in the direction of digital television broadcasting, the acceptance of compressed digital video and storage, video-on-demand, pay-per-view delivery, and multichannel satellite are all elements in this universal shift toward servers for storage and forward delivery of video media.

The book discusses both operational and technical issues related to disk-based, digital recording and the implementation of video server and media server based technologies for broadcast and non-broadcast applications. It also includes developmental and technical discussions of optical, magnetic, and silicon based disk systems.


Major sections are devoted to media and video server technologies and their evolution, while others cover the implementation into production/post- production, graphics/animation, and broadcast operations, including news. There is a section on networking theory as it applies to server implementation. Other sections include drive and system-bus architectures (SCSI< SSA, Fibre Channel).

The material presented includes both introductory and in-depth discussion aimed at the users of the technology: the electronics technician, the maintenance engineer working in a video facility, and the technical manager whose job it is to recommend and advise upper management on current as well as future technological choices in advanced television. The applications portions will also be helpful to the operations technicians or managers already working in a broadcast facility with server systems, or one that is considering integrating video and media server technologies into the plant.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explains tapeless, digital disk, and server-based video recording, covering areas such as evolution of these technologies, networking theory as it applies to server implementation, and drive- and system- bus architectures. Material is based on columns and articles written over the past three and a half years, and some content remains as it was in the original context, in some cases now very much in the past, to highlight important points that have shaped the development of this technology. For electronics technicians, maintenance engineers, technical managers, and operations technicians and managers. Assumes a technical understanding of analog or digital video.
