This article considers the physiological, psychological, and aesthetical parameters of video on two levels--practical and conceptual. Physiological effects and processes are defined as those which occur within a human being when viewing a video event, while videopsychology focuses on how people use the medium of video and the possibilities for self perception that can occur when presented with various forms of video productions. Seven differences in the viewing of video as compared to the perception of photographs, films, or painted pictures are discussed, as well as differences between television and video, the use of alternative methods of videoprogramming, and video psychotherapy. Videoaesthetics is defined as all information impacts of television which create a coincidence between logical, rational, and emotional thinking. It is recommended that video training should include both theory and practice. (JEG)
