Although this work is entitled "Glossary of Audio / Visual Terminology", you will find a lot of terms referring to digital networks as well.  After all, we did tell you elsewhere in this site that the marriage of audio/video with computers is not only inevitable but is upon us today.  

Our thanks to Rane Corporation for inspiring this glossary. The great majority of this glossary is original SHOWORKS work.  At the beginning of our website ( Circa 1997 ) one of our contractors copied the Rain Glossary of Audio Terminology and included it in whole on our website.  This mistake went unnoticed until 2001. Since then over 400 hours has been expended in editing and re-writing  these initial audio definitions  to improve their usefulness and clarity for our customers.   In addition, SHOWORKS has added a considerable volume of definitions in areas other than audio.  This work has included video and wireless definitions specifically relevant to presenters and AV professionals.  It may be possible, however,  that some of the audio definitions still bear a significant resemblance to the original 1997 Rain Glossary.  No reference to the Rain Glossary has been make in researching this volume since 1997.
