Television Basics for TV-ABE Institute.
Maryland Univ., Baltimore.
The guide opens with a discussion of television's limitations: its initial blankness; its technical constraints; its need for studios; its relatively high costs; the need for extensive planning; and its need to be integrated into a broader program. A discussion of television's strengths follows: its flexibility; its ability to focus and magnify; its virtually universal availability; its complementarity with other media; and its economy, especially in terms of saving manpower. The bulk of the guide offers illustrated, easily-understood, technical and operational descriptions of television equipment (both video and audio), and similar discussions of such supporting activities as graphics and lighting. A concluding eight-page section outlines in some detail a method of preparing for and executing a television production that is applicable to most types of instructional production, and also deals with production personnel, conferences, materials, scripts, rehearsals, and actual telecasting.
