Introductory Consumer Electronics Technology Series

The articles below cover a variety of common video and related consumer electronic equipment. They were designed to provide a clear understanding of the basic principles of video, and the components which form part of today's audio/video experience.

This material is originally from the Philips/Magnavox Electreference Web site which has long since disappeared without a trace. Even their employees have no idea of where it went. I will be happy to link directly to a Philips/Magnavox Web site if one exists and appreciate Mail from anyone who has more information about these articles or those that went along with them (e.g, audio equipment).
