Cable Communications in the Dayton Miami Valley: Basic Report.
Johnson, Leland L.; And Others
The report is a ten-part study of prospects for cable television (CATV) in the 13 communities that make up metropolitan Dayton, Ohio. The first three parts deal with the technology and economics of CATV. The next five deal with services that could be provided via CATV. Part seven describes how CATV could be useful for elementary and secondary school needs, and points out that an additional cable could be added to the proposed system for the exclusive use of Dayton schools at a relatively low additional cost. Part eight describes how CATV could provide flexible and convenient continuing education for Dayton doctors. The final two parts of the report deal with issues of franchising and ownership of CATV systems. On the basis of these studies the report recommends development of a network of six interconnected CATV systems, providing 20-40 video channels from the headend to subscriber locations, plus two or three video channels in the reverse direction to permit remote program origination and to provide capacity for future two-way communication services.
