“The book is a strong combination of introductory text and reference work on video. The contents are very academic and technical. It should be useful for practicing hardware developers and engineers and college students in related fields. It is recommended for academic libraries and special libraries serving these audiences.” – Xu Peng, Business Librarian, Michigan State University Gast Business Library “I have never seen such a wealth of useful information about video signals as the author provides in this book. And with today’s emphasis on multimedia computers, video-processing devices, and graphic add-in boards, the book in invaluable, whether you're a test engineering or a designer.” – Test and Measurement World “Since there’s so much to know about video – techniques, coding, formats, protocols, signal shapes, connectors, pinouts and more – I recommend an excellent, comprehensive book that I have seen on this topic. It is Video Demystified … this 900-page book is great to have handy.” — Bill Schweber, Editor, Planet Analog
