The REBO Guide to High Definition Video Production is the first and only book on high definition video to focus on production, not politics. It's a practical book about what it really takes to produce programming in high definition video starting from the very earliest days of production right on out to the most up-to-date techniques and equipment.

Given the inevitability of the widescreen market acceptance of some form of high-resolution, widescreen video transmission, film and video production professionals will find the book's emphasis on the real-life issues involved in using high definition in film-style and live, multi-camera productions invaluable in `Preparing for a Widescreen World'.

The book is organized into sections based on the major components of a production--from Production through Post Production, Engineering, Creative Considerations--and includes the experiences, insights, and anecdotes of some of the most experienced High Definition producers, directors, DPs, and engineers in the world. The Guide...was written to appeal to people with various levels of technical knowledge. It includes an introductory section on video technology, anecdotal non-technical case studies, and the hard-core technical information that producers and engineers need to know to get their jobs done.

REBO has led the way in field-testing new equipment and ground-breaking applications for all aspects of high definition video technology since 1986. The company remains the only independent concern in the world involved in every aspect of high definition from production, post production, and programming through education, to research and applied technology development. Each year REBO is recognized internationally by a diverse body of professionals for its achievements. Accolades include the Prix du Court Metrage award for Best Fiction Short at the Cannes International Film Festival; special recognition from NASA for the first high definition videotaping of the shuttle launch; and, for six straight years, the highest awards at the International Electronic Cinema Festival in Montreux and Tokyo.
