Lighting Systems for TV Studios
"Lighting Systems for TV Studios" provides a wealth of information concerning not only lighting but general studio requirements such as cyclorama cloths, control areas and resource allocation. The book includes all the latest technical information and covers issues such as distributed dimming, Ethernet and the Advanced Control Network. It is the first book written specifically on the subject and is set to become the 'standard'resource work for the sector. The title's concept is to consider different lighting requirements such as dimmers, luminaires, networks, suspension, control desks and electrical systems. It then looks at various situations, related to specific studio size and operational requirements. Projects ranging from a simple single-camera school or college studio through to a large national broadcasting studio are discussed and explained. A number of examples of designs are included, together with explanatory drawings and photographs of installations and products. The aim is to simplify an often complex design process into smaller and more easily understandable elements. To provide further assistance, the author has produced specifications for major items of equipment and these are available from the publisher's web site to purchasers of the book. Preparation of individual project specifications can be made by using this unique facility. "Lighting Systems for TV Studios" strips away the jargon and delivers understandable subject areas along with explanatory photographs and diagrams. Technology is moving so fast that existing users, beginners, consultants, architects and specifiers will all find something of interest. ©2001, 508 pages.
