Keeping Pace with the New Television: Public Television and Changing Technology.
Mahony, Sheila; And Others
Since the publication in April 1979 of the Carnegie Commission's report on the future of public radio and television in the United States, the accelerating pace of technological change has become even clearer, and this study was undertaken to provide a more detailed review of new marketplace developments, examining both service and revenue possibilities for the public television industry. The first section of this report focuses on a proposed nonprofit cable network for performing arts, culture, and entertainment (PACE). The five industry reports which follow discuss the current status of domestic satellite communications, the cable television industry, pay television, the home video market, and videotext services. A financial projection and a prototype program schedule for PACE, a glossary of acronyms, and an index are also provided. (MER)
