The Society of Broadcast Engineers will be using the NAB Show to launch a new broadcast engineering handbook, the “SBE Broadcast Engineering Handbook.”
Co-produced with McGraw Hill Education, it is subtitled, “Hands-on Guide to Station Design and Maintenance.”
For the radio and TV engineer, the book “offers detailed practical information on video, audio and broadcast transmission systems from dozens of the field’s foremost experts.”
It features “everything from basic principles and formulae to the latest technologies and engineering trends, this hands-on resource offers practical and up-to-date coverage of all major broadcast technologies for radio, TV and related fields.”
The book contains sections on “regulatory issues, RF transmission, DTV transport, information technology systems, production systems, facility issues, broadcast management,” along with adding three reference annexes.
Editor in Chief Jerry Whitaker, vice president of Standards Development for the Advanced Television Systems Committee, oversaw over 50 contributing authors. Price: $199
An April 17 press conference is scheduled for 3 PT. On hand will be Whitaker, SBE President Jerry Massey, several contributing authors and others.
