About the Book
With television programming broadcast worldwide 24/7, the industry needs a common language. Constantly changing technology, however, has resulted in continuously changing terminology, sometimes leaving even the most knowledgeable broadcasters with a lack of understanding. In this dictionary more than 1,500 terms and acronyms, modern and classical, are presented. The definitions are straightforward and jargon-free (except where defining jargon) and ample cross-references are provided.
