The second edition version is a much needed reference text for any A/V or IT system professional working in media today.  Al does a great job in explaining the video world to the IT professional as well as giving the A/V engineer invaluable insight into the media IT environment. 

I have given copies of the book to key members of my staff and we have multiple copies in our tech library.
