The course attempts an introduction to Electronic Media and the audiovisual technologies, starting from the description of the audiovisual phenomena and the perception of the corresponding stimuli that are related to the physiology of vision – hearing. Next, "capture" and transformation of the audiovisual physical phenomena to electrical signals using appropriate photoelectric and electroacoustic transducers is presented, along with audiovisual recording and processing-editing techniques during the phases of production, post production and broadcasting.
