This is an authoritative dictionary, with a distinguished editorial board representing all facets of communications and broadcasting. A solid purchase for public, academic, or special libraries serving media programs. "Choice" This revised and expanded third edition of Diamant's now-classic "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" contains almost three times as many entries as the original volume, providing both beginning and experienced communications personnel with an invaluable lexicographical tool. Hailed as highly recommended by "Millimeter" and a must by "Television/Radio Age," "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" is a unique guide to the technical, slang, and commonly-used words that broadcast communicators and engineers use in English-speaking countries everywhere. Here--completely cross-referenced to British terminology--are more than 5,000 terms currently in use in all areas of radio and television programing and production; network and station operations; broadcast equipment and engineering; audio and video tape recording; performing talent; agency and client advertising procedures; media usage; research; defense, government, trade, and allied groups. Among the entries new to the third edition are several hundred items generated by the development of computerization and satellite technology and a host of fresh definitions spawned by the accelerating expansion of cable television. As in previous editions, all entries are in alphabetical order. Extensive cross-referencing offers additional information where appropriate. A brief up-to-date bibliography lists more detailed technical reference works in individual fields. Logically organized, easy to use, and now extensively revised and expanded, "The Broadcast Communications Dictionary" underlines the complex interrelationships among all spheres of contemporary communications activity. It will be an indispensable resource for broadcasting and communications students, as well as for those employed in production and broadcasting facilities nationwide.

The Audio Dictionary is a comprehensive resource, including historical, obsolete, and obscure as well as contemporary terms relating to diverse aspects of audio such as film and TV sound, recording, Hi-Fi, and acoustics. The Third Edition includes four hundred new entries, such as AAC (advanced audio coding), lip synch, metadata, MP3, and satellite radio. Every term from previous editions has been reconsidered and often rewritten. Guest entries are by Dennis Bohn, cofounder and head of research and development at Rane Corporation, and film sound expert Larry Blake, whose credits include Erin Brockovich and Ocean's Eleven. The appendixes--tutorials that gather a lifetime's worth of experience in acoustics--include both new and greatly expanded articles.

In today’s thoroughly mediated societies people spend many hours in the role of audiences, while powerful organizations, including governments, corporations and schools, reach people via the media. Consequently, how people think about, and organizations treat, audiences has considerable significance. This ground-breaking collection offers original, empirical studies of discourses about audiences by bringing together a genuinely international range of work. With essays on audiences in ancient Greece, early modern Germany, Soviet and post-Soviet Russia, Zimbabwe, contemporary Egypt, Bengali India, China, Taiwan, and immigrant diaspora in Belgium, each chapter examines the ways in which audiences are embedded in discourses of power, representation, and regulation in different yet overlapping ways according to specific socio-historical contexts. Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book is a valuable and original contribution to media and communication studies. It will be particularly useful to those studying audiences and international media.
