Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"HD acquisition technology has changed dramatically over the past few years. Without accurate and honest analysis of these changes, huge mistakes artistically, technically and most importantly, financially will be made. Chuck and Mark have dramatically lessoned your exposure (no pun intended) to disaster by writing this book."
- Randall P. Dark, Co-founder and President, HD Vision Studios

"This is not just a thoughtful and much needed book for HDV; it provides excellent information about digital video technologies as a whole, including some historical perspective and technical discussions that are made surprisingly simple to understand by the writers. This text is an excellent basic primer for any producer or student entering the brave new world of high definition digital production."
- Connie Book, Associate Professor and Department Chair, Elon University School of Communications

"Written by two authors with loads of hands-on experience and rigorously tech edited, this book aims to demystify the technology and techniques of working with HDV so that people can get the most out of the format. This book is written at a level accessible to beginners and is heavily illustrated with stills, charts, and photos. The whole process, from project planning to distribution on DVD, is covered.” - internetvideomag.com October, 2006

One of the book's strengths, we think, is the authors' ability to put everything into context, whether it's the development of the first 3-CCD chip camera, or the discussion centered on CMOS. We also like inclusion of real world experiences in the form of video projects they've actually shot.-Theano Nikitas, Camcorder & Computer Video, Ventura, CA, Feb 2007
