Description: Defining Vision, the story of the creation of HDTV, "helped define the terms of the battle, changed the New York Times coverage of the issues and forced other publications ... to reassess their outlooks" (Mediaweek). Updated to include the Latest twists and turns in this epic battle for the future of television, Defining Vision becomes even more important, as the new televisions become avaiLabLe to the consumer.

The true impact of HDTV and the story of how it was developed is more tortured -- and the global competition that created it much more exciting -- than any newspaper and magazine has been able to report. The recent Federal Communications Commission's ruling that allowed manufacturers to start building the new sets became major national news. And broadcasters have been mandated to begin programming with HDTV formats. Among the first repercussions was a drop in TV sales, as consumers anticipated buying the new televisions. In the fall of 1998 they will be inundated with advertising and high-definition hoopla about the wonders of HDTV, as the revolution in television comes home. Defining Vision is not only the first book on the subject, it will undoubtedly be the definitive one. This edition also includes guidelines to the new features HDTV will offer.
