More Details..

Sound Production introduces students to applying the processes of audio techniques within the sphere of media production. Presuming no prior technical knowledge, Andrew Lansley focuses on universal techniques that will work across all contemporary software and be of use to those needing to work with sound for radio, TV, film, videogames and websites.

The format of the text follows a simple structure broken down into three main parts:
Part 1: Theory & Technical Information -including a brief history of sound, basic audio theory- digital and biological, equipment and software
Part 2: Techniques & Processes - including recording, digitising and organising, editing, equalisation, dynamic processes, FX processes, mixing, fixing and mastering
Part 3: Industry Specific Applications & Exercises - including the radio, film/TV, web and gaming industries.

The book includes masterclasses from professionals in each field including amongst others:

  • BBC Wildlife audio producer and editor Peter Butler
  • Record Producer George Shilling, who has worked with artists such as Blur and James Brown
  • BBC Trails Editor Rob Champion
  • Grammy nominated producer, James Towler

It is supported by a continually updated companion website providing further source material and exercises.

Planning And Designing The IP Broadcast Facility

More Details..

The transition to computer-based technologies and file-based workflows is one of the most significant changes the broadcast and production industry has seen. Media is produced for multiple delivery platforms: Over the Air, Over the Top, large screen displays, cable, satellite, web, digital signage, tablets, and smartphones. These changes impact all aspects of creation, production, media management, technical operations, business processes, and distribution to end users. Of all the books and papers discussing storage mapping, packet transport, and compression algorithms, none puts all the pieces together and explains where these fit into the whole environment. Planning and Designing the IP Broadcast Facility is the first to provide a comprehensive understanding of the technology architecture, physical facility changes, and—most importantly—the new media management workflows and business processes to support the entire lifecycle of the IP broadcast facility from an engineering and workflow perspective.

Key features:

  • This beginning-to-end perspective gives you the necessary knowledge to make the decisions to implement a cost-effective file-based production and distribution system.
  • The cohesive, big-picture viewpoint helps you identify the differences in a tape-based facility, then how to overcome the unique challenges of upgrading your plant.
  • Case studies throughout the book serve as recommendations and examples of use, helping you weigh the pros and cons of various approaches.

A systematic treatment of the design and fabrication of chipless RFID sensors

This book presents various sensing techniques incorporated into chipless RFID systems. The book is divided into five main sections: Introduction to Chipless RFID Sensors; RFID Sensor Design; Smart Materials; Fabrication, Integration and Testing; and Applications of Chipless RFID Sensors. After a comprehensive review of conventional RFID sensors, the book presents various passive microwave circuit designs to achieve compact, high data density and highly sensitive tag sensors for a number of real-world ubiquitous sensing applications. The book reviews the application of smart materials for microwave sensing and provides an overview of various micro- and nano-fabrication techniques with the potential to be used in the development of chipless RFID sensors. The authors also explore a chipless RFID reader design capable of reading data ID and sensory information from the chipless RFID sensors presented in the book. The unique features of the book are:

  • Evaluating new chipless RFID sensor design that allow non-invasive PD detection and localization, real-time environment monitoring, and temperature threshold detection and humidity
  • Providing a classification of smart materials based on sensing physical parameters (i.e. humidity, temperature, pH, gas, strain, light, etc.)
  • Discussing innovative micro- and nano-fabrication processes including printing suitable for chipless RFID sensors
  • Presenting a detailed case study on various real-world applications including retail, pharmaceutical, logistics, power, and construction industries

Chipless RFID Sensors is primarily written for researchers in the field of RF sensors but can serve as supplementary reading for graduate students and professors in electrical engineering and wireless communications.

More Details..

An examination of how activists combine political advocacy and technical practice in their promotion of the emancipatory potential of local low-power FM radio.

The United States ushered in a new era of small-scale broadcasting in 2000 when it began issuing low-power FM (LPFM) licenses for noncommercial radio stations around the country. Over the next decade, several hundred of these newly created low-wattage stations took to the airwaves. In Low Power to the People, Christina Dunbar-Hester describes the practices of an activist organization focused on LPFM during this era. Despite its origins as a pirate broadcasting collective, the group eventually shifted toward building and expanding regulatory access to new, licensed stations. These radio activists consciously cast radio as an alternative to digital utopianism, promoting an understanding of electronic media that emphasizes the local community rather than a global audience of Internet users.

Dunbar-Hester focuses on how these radio activists impute emancipatory politics to the "old" medium of radio technology by promoting the idea that "microradio" broadcasting holds the potential to empower ordinary people at the local community level. The group's methods combine political advocacy with a rare commitment to hands-on technical work with radio hardware, although the activists' hands-on, inclusive ethos was hampered by persistent issues of race, class, and gender.

Dunbar-Hester's study of activism around an "old" medium offers broader lessons about how political beliefs are expressed through engagement with specific technologies. It also offers insight into contemporary issues in media policy that is particularly timely as the FCC issues a new round of LPFM licenses.
