What do we measure and why? Peter Hodges sets out in approachable language and with clear illustrations, the answers to this question. New entrants to the video industry, as well as those already established, will find this a uniquely readable guide to the basics of a complex subject.
The essence of 'measurement' is to make sure that all the parts fit. In video this means making sure the picture fits the system, or conversely, the system can handle the picture.
The second edition brings this text into the digital age, while recognizing that an understanding of analogue video is still essential. Peter Hodges has updated and reorganized the book for greater accessibility. New sections on digital video, digital measurement techniques, LCD displays, color and compression have been added.
