Television: Technology and Cultural Form (Routledge Classics) (Volume 124)

Television: Technology and Cultural Form (Routledge Classics) (Volume 124)

Television: Technology and Cultural Form was first published in 1974, long before the dawn of multi-channel TV, or the reality and celebrity shows that now pack the schedules. Yet Williams' analysis of television's history, its institutions, programmes and practices, and its future prospects, remains remarkably prescient. Williams stresses the importance of technology in shaping the cultural form of television, while always resisting the determinism of McLuhan's dictum that 'the medium is the message'. If the medium really is the message, Williams asks, what is left for us to do or say? Williams argues that, on the contrary, we as viewers have the power to disturb, disrupt and to distract the otherwise cold logic of history and technology - not just because television is part of the fabric of our daily lives, but because new technologies continue to offer opportunities, momentarily outside the sway of transnational corporations or the grasp of media moguls, for new forms of self and political expression.

TV Advertising; Business, Technology, and Systems

TV Advertising; Business, Technology, and Systems

This book covers the TV advertising industry, how TV ad systems work, advertising economics, advanced TV advertising options, and TV advertising systems are evolving into targeted interactive marketing networks. Between 2004 and 2010, over 1/3rd of money budgeted on television advertising campaigns ($17 billion per year in the United States) had shifted to Internet advertising. Television advertising is changing to better compete and in some cases outperform Internet advertising. TV systems have been evolving into two-way media distribution networks (cable modems, IPTV, mobile video). This allows TV systems to better identify who should receive certain types of ads and to get immediate feedback on how they are reacting to the commercials. You will discover how targeted and addressable advertising can be used to better select commercials for viewers and how interactive commercials allow viewers to select, store, and expand (telescope) commercials. These advanced advertising systems can provide more value for the viewer, create more sales for the advertiser, and earn more revenue for the broadcaster. The book describes the roles of TV ad agencies and how some of them are starting to change to take advantage of new targeted advertising options. This includes ways that ad messages ca...

Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies

Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies

How do visual images shape the practice of medicine? What role does visual representation play in the cultivation of medical ways of seeing? And how has medicine's visual culture changed in the digital age? Kirsten Ostherr's ambitious study explores 120 years of medical image-making to explain how visual representations shape medical education and practice. Marshaling powerful, vivid examples she demonstrates how medical images created by the healthcare industry, documentary filmmakers, experimental artists, and the mass media acquire cultural meaning and influence doctors' and patients' understandings of health and disease. Her analysis proceeds chronologically, turning from the earliest experiments with medical filmmaking by the American College of Surgeons, to the place of health films in the "golden age" of instructional film in the 1960s. Ostherr considers the shift to television as the dominant medium of health education, highlighting the evolving status of realism, the techniques employed to bridge the entertainment-education divide, the role of expert consultants and sponsors, and the tradeoffs made by professionals to reach a broad audience. The rise of physician advice segments on newsmagazines forms a transition between medical dramas like Marcus Welby, MD and more rec...
