The Informatics Handbook is a guide to the converging technologies of information technology, telecommunications, broadcasting and multimedia production. This reference provides comprehensive coverage of all these areas and in more detail than you would find in a conventional dictionary. Extensive cross-referencing leads the reader to other related subjects. Travellers on the information superhighway will find this an essential guide.
Because different groups use terms in different ways, it is important that the implications of each term are clear. Many variations in common usage are included in this handbook to help readers tread a path through the jungle of acronyms and jargon in current telecommunications and computer literature.
The Informatics Handbook assumes some knowledge of computing, and a basic understanding of telecommunications. It is intended for enthusiasts, network and EIS managers, multimedia producers and other specialist professionals who require a thorough knowledge of the terms used. It also provides a ready reference for competing technologies, frequencies, channel spacings and other fundamental data.
