This is an authoritative dictionary, with a distinguished editorial board representing all facets of communications and broadcasting. A solid purchase for public, academic, or special libraries serving media programs. "Choice" This revised and expanded third edition of Diamant's now-classic "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" contains almost three times as many entries as the original volume, providing both beginning and experienced communications personnel with an invaluable lexicographical tool. Hailed as highly recommended by "Millimeter" and a must by "Television/Radio Age," "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" is a unique guide to the technical, slang, and commonly-used words that broadcast communicators and engineers use in English-speaking countries everywhere. Here--completely cross-referenced to British terminology--are more than 5,000 terms currently in use in all areas of radio and television programing and production; network and station operations; broadcast equipment and engineering; audio and video tape recording; performing talent; agency and client advertising procedures; media usage; research; defense, government, trade, and allied groups. Among the entries new to the third edition are several hundred items generated by the development of computerization and satellite technology and a host of fresh definitions spawned by the accelerating expansion of cable television. As in previous editions, all entries are in alphabetical order. Extensive cross-referencing offers additional information where appropriate. A brief up-to-date bibliography lists more detailed technical reference works in individual fields. Logically organized, easy to use, and now extensively revised and expanded, "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" underlines the complex interrelationships among all spheres of contemporary communications activity. It will be an indispensable resource for broadcasting and communications students, as well as for those employed in production and broadcasting facilities nationwide.

The Audio Dictionary is a comprehensive resource, including historical, obsolete, and obscure as well as contemporary terms relating to diverse aspects of audio such as film and TV sound, recording, Hi-Fi, and acoustics. The Third Edition includes four hundred new entries, such as AAC (advanced audio coding), lip synch, metadata, MP3, and satellite radio. Every term from previous editions has been reconsidered and often rewritten. Guest entries are by Dennis Bohn, cofounder and head of research and development at Rane Corporation, and film sound expert Larry Blake, whose credits include Erin Brockovich and Ocean's Eleven. The appendixes--tutorials that gather a lifetime's worth of experience in acoustics--include both new and greatly expanded articles.

What you need to know to survive, long term. Interests between broadcasters and telecom people are blurring. Technical operations and design engineers in one field are increasingly required to deal with practices and techniques in the other. The problem is expectations and terminology differences aren't recognized until it's too late. Take "Quality of Service." The telecom people specify a percentage of the time that the service is guaranteed to be available. The down time may be very, very small. But, if it occurs during a high-priced commercial in the Super Bowl, it is very, very serious for the broadcaster. Practical IP and Telecom for Broadcast Engineering and Operations teaches the technology and how to structure it and make sure the finances work in your favor. Learn how to: * Define communications circuit, equipment, facilities and services used in broadcast engineering and operations. * Evaluate suppliers as well as their products and services. * Prepare technical specifications and requests for bids, proposals required in competitive procurement actions. * Conduct communications operational effectiveness and cost audits. * Prepare communications cost management strategies and plans. * Plan and execute capital projects. * Survive Long-Term Critical for engineers, technicians, and managers engaged in designing, installing, testing, and maintaining equipment and network services for program content, training material, or audio/video conferencing. Valuable knowledge for planning, design, integration and operation of communications equipment, facilities and services used in broadcast operations, training and conferencing applications. Fred Huffman is a systems engineer with Athens Olympic Broadcasting, the Host Broadcaster for the 2004 Games. He has more than 35 years experience in technical and management roles in broadcasting and telecommunications fields. This work is largely a reflection of that experience, captured in a way that introduces the reader to technical aspects of IP, ATM and classical telecom, along with business essentials such as contracts, tariffs, project planning, budgeting and long range planning.

Fiber Optics Vocabulary Development In 1979, the National Communications System published Technical InfonnationBulle tin TB 79-1, Vocabulary for Fiber Optics and Lightwave Communications, written by this author. Based on a draft prepared by this author, the National Communications System published Federal Standard FED-STD-1037, Glossary of Telecommunications Terms, in 1980 with no fiber optics tenns. In 1981, the first edition of this dictionary was published under the title Fiber Optics and Lightwave Communications Standard Dictionary. In 1982, the then National Bureau of Standards, now the National Institute of Standards and Technology, published NBS Handbook 140, Optical Waveguide Communications Glossary, which was also published by the General Services Admin istration as PB82-166257 under the same title. Also in 1982, Dynamic Systems, Inc. , Fiberoptic Sensor Technology Handbook, co-authored and edited by published the this author, with an extensive Fiberoptic Sensors Glossary. In 1989, the handbook was republished by Optical Technologies, Inc. It contained the same glossary. In 1984, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers published IEEE Standard 812-1984, Definitions of Terms Relating to Fiber Optics. In 1986, with the assistance of this author, the National Communications System published FED-STD-1037A, Glossary of Telecommunications Terms, with a few fiber optics tenns. In 1988, the Electronics Industries Association issued EIA-440A, Fiber Optic Terminology, based primarily on PB82-166257. The International Electrotechnical Commission then pub lished IEC 731, Optical Communications, Terms and Definitions. In 1989, the second edition of this dictionary was published.
