Download Wire, Cable, and Fiber Optics for Video and Audio Engineers epub

by Stephen H. Lampen

The design, installation and maintenance of video/audio systems has always been dependent upon extensive wiring and cabling, but modern digital video and audio require large amounts of bandwidth, greatly complicating these issues. This book aims to provide the foundations that will allow engineers and technicians to make intelligent trade-offs between capacity, speed and cost as they wire, design and install modern media systems. It covers all major audio visual interconnection solutions, focusing on trade-offs.

I would support the other reviews here and have found this book to be of immense value in explaining the whys and hows of cable construction and the limitations of capacitance, inductance, and shielding. Not as a reference, but instead a great book for providing background information for anyone dealing with a mix of wiring demands for audio, video and data.
I bought this book before wiring up a major radio studio facility. I read the whole thing cover-to-cover. The parts about audio wiring and audio cables were well worth the money. I would recommend this book to audio engineers. In fact, this book was recommended to ME by a fellow radio engineer!
Very comprehensive, good illustrations
Steve is an expert in the field. Well written.

wow... what an eye opening book. i heartily recommend this text to anyone looking to learn more about the joys of wire.
It is so hard to find anything useful written on the top of audio cabling, especially when so much of it is marketing hype written by people whose understanding of electrical and audio engineering seems to have been derived from a careful study of science fiction. Lampen's book, on the other hand, is a handy, concise, and well illustrated reference for the guy (or gal) who needs to plug one sound creating doodad into another. And it's clear and well-written to boot!
