Proceedings of the Symposium on Cable Television.
Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, Inc., New York, NY.
The papers given at a symposium on cable television (CATV) are collected in this volume. The chairman of the symposium notes that "the phrase 'cable television' is not totally pertinent since we are talking about a wired-city concept that may encompass many services other than television." He prefers the term "broadband communications network," which also provides services of electronic mail, audience polling, meter reading, instructional television, and information retrieval. The collection includes two panel discussions, on the coming software explosion for cable television and on receiver/cable television interface, and papers on the following topics: "Broadband Communications,""Ground Stations, the CATV Satellite Interface,""Local Programming on Film for CATV,""CATV Needs a Complete Super-8 Film System,""Automatic Programing for CATV,""Suggested Technical Standards for CATV Program Orientation,""Coaxial Cable for Municipal Services,""Utility Meter Reading and the Realization of Two-Way Communications,""Receiver/CATV Problems and Case Histories," and several papers on cameras which may be used in CATV.
