The International Communications Industries Association has released the revised edition to The Basics of Audio and Visual Systems Design, covering physics, ergonomics and design.
ICIA’s Professional Education and Training Committee recently revised the first edition, under the editorial leadership of Kim Milliken of Da-Lite Screen Company. Upon Milliken’s passing earlier this year, Mike Weems, CTS, MCP, of InFocus Corporation, built upon his work and brought the project to completion.
Written by well-known industry experts, The Basics of Audio and Visual Systems Design: Revised Edition comprises 12 sections: the Projected Image Format, Screen Size Versus Ceiling Height, Projection Screens, Projection Optics, Mirrors in Projection Systems, Measuring Light, Projection Technologies, the Audio in Audiovisual, the Video in Audiovisual, Technical Power and Ground Systems, Remote Control Systems and Videoconferencing.
“Although the basic science behind the A/V industry hasn’t changed, today’s technology and applications provide a power to ideas never dreamed of in 1983,” said Randal A. Lemke, Ph.D., executive director of ICIA. “It is ICIA’s privilege to provide this work to a new generation of audiovisual professionals with gratitude to those who came before.”
The Basics of Audio and Visual Systems Design: Revised Edition is available on ICIA’s Website, www.infocomm.org, in the Products section.
