Television is going stereo. At the same time the television companies are cutting back on staff, operating with smaller crews and expecting their remaining operators to become multi skilled. Training has become almost nonexistent and more and more training is being undertaken in-house or by small college units. This book looks at the underlying stereo theory. It examines the mixers and recorders currently favoured for location stereo recording and discusses how sound is recorded on portable single camera camcorders and the implications for quality and post production.
