La televisión de la Nueva Generación
Este libro recorre la historia de la televisión desde su más frágil concepto en matices de grises hasta su concepto más completo no solo a color sino en formato digital. Es un camino que abarca casi 100 años y que al final arrasa con los conceptos que se tenían de la televisión el siglo pasado. Como resultado tenemos la desaparición del cinematógrafo y de la televisión per se para convertirse en una señal a color como nunca soñaron los primeros pioneros investigadores de la imagen. La televisión es el resultado de la inspiración de rusos, norteamericanos tanto del norte como del sur del Rio Bravo, ingleses, japoneses y holandeses primordialmente.  Al final hacemos una breve introducción al sistema de nueva Generación que amalgama tanto la señal abierta al aire por medio de ondas electromagnéticas como la señal serial IP conocida como ATSC 3.0.
