My special thanks to:
Alan Piper for inviting me to become an associate of Panavision Europe a few days before they received their first High Definition (HD) camera, a moment which now seems a long time ago, an invitation which subsequently led to the first edition of this book. My only regret here is that we have both moved on to more interesting things and therefore see a little less of each other. I also have to thank him for being my technical editor on this, the third edition.
Peter Swarbrick, Head of Digital Imaging, Panavision Europe for being wonderfully supportive and a great friend and colleague who took the trouble to start teaching a film man a thing or two about HD and for giving me some great quotes.
