Summary

In the tenth edition of Herbert Zettl's field-defining text TELEVISION PRODUCTION HANDBOOK, the author's emphasis shifts to how production proceeds in the digital age --from idea to image -- and how it moves through the three major phases, from preproduction to production to postproduction. In this context, you will learn about the necessary tools, examine what they can and cannot do, and explore how they are used to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This edition also features the latest digital equipment and production techniques, including HDV and HDTV.
