Public Broadcasting Service Participation in the NPACT Coverage of the Political Primaries and the Two and One Half National Conventions.
Stone, Robert R.
Television coverage of the 1972 Presidential Conventions was a complicated, time consuming, exhausting and yet challenging task for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Operating on limited funds and borrowed equipment, PBS had to literally throw together its operation in Miami Beach and still keep tabs on the candidates wandering around the country. The author, an engineering manager with KCET-TV in Los Angeles, outlines the engineering gymnastics that PBS had to go through to provide the coverage necessary. The video equipment, telephone communications, power requirements, and remote set ups are described in careful technical detail. (MC)
