-Tube, ccd, cmos cameras: what is unique to each?

-What are the mechanics of CRTs and LCDs?

-Fundamentals of working with hardware video mixers (wipes, keying, compositing)

-What is a TBC/frame sync

-What is DSK and how can I use this as a Cellular Automata System?

-Fundamentals of video feedback both with cameras and with the internal feedback of the mixers
