Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This classic, best-selling text introduces students to the basic skills required in all aspects of television production, including camera and studio, field equipment and production, and multicamera directing, at the same time emphasizing the latest production techniques and technology, such as audio workstations, non-linear editing, and HDV (High Definition Video). TELEVISION PRODUCTION HANDBOOK introduces cutting-edge developments in the field, while maintaining its reputation as the standard for the Television Production course. Presented in full-color for the first time, this is the most current, technically accurate reference text available, and it offers the most extensive teaching and learning package for the course.
In the tenth edition of Herbert Zettl's field-defining text TELEVISION PRODUCTION HANDBOOK, the author's emphasis shifts to how production proceeds in the digital age --from idea to image — and how it moves through the three major phases, from preproduction to production to postproduction. In this context, you will learn about the necessary tools, examine what they can and cannot do, and explore how they are used to ensure maximum efficiency and effectiveness. This edition also features the latest digital equipment and production techniques, including HDV and HDTV.

Table of Contents
"Herb Zettl continues his classic tradition of providing a comprehensive and up-to-date textbook for video production. It is an honor to be associated with such a tradition." "I think the textbook is really quite fantastic, and great for students who want to continue to production outside of the university [...]" "Zettl's TELEVISION PRODUCTION HANDBOOK is a comprehensive text that provides useful information in a clear and practical way. This is a good example of an interesting text created by an insider who knows television through actual experience. The book lays out the foundation for understanding how to create television and works nicely when combined with actual studio production." "I enjoy the author's writing style. It is clear, interesting, and intelligent. We have all seen textbooks that take 500 pages to say what should be said in 200 pages. This is not one of them. The writing and the illustrations combine to make a great learning experience for students."
