In an effort to foster the innovative uses of television technology, this tabloid format periodical details social, educational, and artistic experiments with television and lists a large number of experimental videotapes available from various television-centered groups and individuals. The principal areas explored in this issue include cable television, laser technology, equipment evaluations, and reports of innovative projects. Interviews with Eric Siegel and Brice Howard are presented. A directory reports on the current addresses and activities of groups and individuals who are exploring various aspects of the medium. Sample articles include a glossary of television terms, tips on using portable half-inch videotape recording equipment, a comparison of videotape cartridge/cassette systems, a report on a "Media Access Center" in Menlo Park, California, and a survey of current developments in the field of cable television, with special emphasis on the effect of the Federal Communications Commission ruling on program origination. All cable systems likely to be affected by the ruling are listed. (JY)
