Format: Paperback
This book was a great read for a beginner, although the title is very misleading...
6 of the 12 chapters are to do with projectors, and the material gets very in depth into to inner workings of projectors.
The main problem with the book is that there is only one short chapter relating to audio, when sound has such an important role within any audio visual environment it should not be reduced to 30 pages among 250.
In saying this, the information on projection systems and other sections in this book make it a worthwhile read for the beginner.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The secondary reflection formula seems to be incomplete- it's definitely not clear, and by publishing it, it's clear that the author, the editor, and the publisher don't get it and haven't actually worked through it.

I wrote to the author and never received a response.

While the secondary reflection formula may seem esoteric to some, I think it is essential and should be understood by anyone designing these systems, and the fact that book misses on this point necessarily casts a shadow on everything in it- if you have the knowledge to know whether it is accurate, then you don't need it, and if you can't trust it, then you don't want it!
