Questions related to Television
The publication of Abraham Moles' "Sociodynamique de la Culture" in 1967 sparked new reflections on the relationship between the person, society and the modes of mass communication. Moles highlighted the intense relationship between the individual, his culture and the dynamics that develop around it. His approach to sociodynamic theory applied to message transfer reminded us about the dynamic and social processes that interfere with how a message is sent, interpreted, registered and shared. Although his work focused on radio and television, we could apply the same principles (with some breadth) to digital media. Nevertheless, how could we speak of a new Sociodynamique de la Culture in the current context? What new reflections can we draw from Moles's sociodynamic theory?
The fourth wall is a term that television borrowed from its first origin (theater) represented by the interface of the screen displaying the work. One scene on television is a theatrical clip within a group of scenes that confines the subject between four walls, the fourth of which is removed and replaced by the camera, which represents the viewing angle for the viewer and a difference can be recorded Between parties in the theater the distance and angle of view are constant between the audience and the message does not change, but while this distance is defined and new while the room was closed.

I am in dire need of any literature that discusses the benefits of marketing communication development and implementation in the media industry such as the broadcasting organizers (radio, televisions). I have only seen how marketing communication could use radio and televisions as their promotional/advertising medium. But what I want to know if the brand itself is the radio and/or television companies and how they benefit from the marketing communication strategies to compete with the ever-changing media dynamics especially in internet era. Thank you so much!
I am investigating how personality (openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism) and television viewing motive type (ritualistic, instrumental) influence the dependent variable of television viewing levels (i.e. how long/often someone watches television for).
I want to look at the main effects of the two IVs and how they interact to influence the DV.
What would be the most appropriate statistical technique here? I am unsure between regression and ANOVA.
My current study explores the psychology of how children learn about other nations through the media and is examining a television series with anthropomorphised animals.
The first stage involved examining the series to better understand how national identities are assigned to animal characters.
I was editing my findings section and happened to notice that the values in columns labelled CFAs and CSAs were equal or close to half the values in IFAs and ISAs, except for the bottom left two cells (28 and 8).
For contexts, the column labels stand for Individual Feature Animals, Collective Feature Animals, Individual Supporting Animals and Collective Supporting Animals.
Feature refers to animals who were the focus of a narrative.
Supporting refers to animals who contributed to a narrative but weren't the focus.
Individual refers to single animals.
Collective refers to groups of two or more animals - like a pod of whales - or references to entire species.
I feel like I might be digging a bit too deep here, but is there a statistical analysis that could potentially identify a relationship between the values presented?
Is it possible to consider visual arts such as cinema, television, and multimedia as a discipline related to fine arts more than it is academically related to the field of communication sciences?
I hope to participate in this discussion and kindly present your valuable opinions and your views because this discussion will provide a high and wonderful scientific benefit at the same time for the projects that I will work on in the future.
many thanks ...
My sample is 131 television ads. Chi-square of ad categories gives significant result with each of 6 advertising appeals but the assumption of expected count less than 25% cells is violated. When i double my dataset, it solves the problem. Ethically can i do this? some othe way? Please someone urgently help.
Every time we turn on the television we see anti wrinkle creams, diets, fashion shows with models with impossible bodies, hair treatments, and that, little by little, is installed in our brain. They do not show us the reality: that wrinkles at a certain age are inevitable, that when we grow we get stretch marks and cellulite, that we have one breast bigger than another, that women can be as bare as men ...
And then we try to resemble those ideals that have sold us massively, and instead of seeing strangers those bodies passed by hundreds of advisors and operations, we see ours as rare.
How dangerous it is to spend more hours in front of the TV, than on the street, you don't know how much they can deceive us
Nowadays the media are one of the main sources of information for adolescents. The media that most affect adolescents are the mass media, which are known for producing large-scale cultural changes, both positively and negatively. As, for example, we can talk about television, radio, newspaper, magazine, internet, cinema, among others. On the other hand, I think that many teenagers identify the real world with what they observe on television and the internet. Therefore, I think that the media greatly influence teenagers.
By using the Narda SRM 3006 device to measure electromagnetic radiation:
-What is the period of time required for each location or spot to measure?
-How can I insert and name frequencies whether for radio broadcasting, television, mobile communications and wireless communications?
- What are the conditions required necessarily when measuring?
- Some researches say that a person should turn off the transformer while measuring. Other researches say that a person can receive a phone call during measuring. Though I think that switching the mobile off is the right choice. So, What do you think?
-Finally, can we transfer data from the device to the computer in a form of an excel file?
I hope the experts in this field answer me please
I worked at DIRECTV projects and know many Mexican residents buy their satellite dishes in the U.S. using the address for a friend and then transport the device to Mexico to gain access to American television. I was wondering if that is something your project is touching at all...
Should children watch television at a young age? How young is too young? Does early exposure cause unseen consequences on later behavior in children? Is there healthy versus unhealthy television watching that could impact behavior, brain development or psychology? Theories, hypothesizes or ideas.
I'm currently doing my MA in Media Studies, looking at representations of masculinities in a popular South African television series. I understand that Stuart Hall is integral when researching representation but I'm looking for more contemporary prominent theorists in this field. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
I am looking for historical data (from 1980s till today) about the audience market share on the TV markets of the European Union. The data should be using SHR method, the whole population.
For example, for studying the costume of actors in ads we have,
As in the original study, each discernible adult model was classified into one of four ordinal categories of the dress (Soley & Reid, 1988). Dress differs primarily by the amount of clothing worn by models in the advertisements, and has four levels: (1) demure, (2) suggestive,
(3) partially-clad, and (4) nude.
For my bachelor thesis I am working on a speech assistant that can be used in bank consulting sessions. For example, the consultant can ask the assistant to provide the history of a specific share's price in a chart.
The focus of my thesis lies on improving the speech-to-text results that we receive from our ASR engine. For this task I need a german corpus from the field of bank consulting conversations.
Since to my knowledge such a corpus does not exist, I need to create my own. As I have no experience in creating corpora, do any of you have suggestions as where to start, what tools to use or how to proceed in general? I was thinking that maybe there are transcriptions of television shows debating share prices or interviews in newspapers that could be used?
Thanks in advance!
I am looking for questionnaires that will be appropriate to measure emotional responses like fear and happiness after a participant consumes equivalent visual content both on TV and AR device . Thanks
I am trying to measure emotional response when visual media content is displayed on television or AR device.
I’m struggling with a experimental design. I have an alternative C, that has 4 attributes (X1, X2, X3, X4) with (2, 3, 4 and 3) levels respectively.
What I want is that respondents rate the alternative according to different scenarios of this alternatives attributes.
Something like this:
ESCENARIO 1: rate from 1 to 5 (consider 1 is the lowest and 5 the hihghest score) the comfort of the bus service according to the following attributes:
- Spacious seats
- Tv Available
- Food available and water available
- Big windows
1__ 2__ 3__ 4__ 5__
ESCENARIO 2: rate from 1 to 5 (consider 1 is the lowest and 5 the hihghest score) the comfort of the bus service according to the following attributes:
- Spacious seats
- No Tv Available
- Just water available
- Med sized windows
1__ 2__ 3__ 4__ 5__
How can I do this experimental design, on spss or other software?
I wondered if anyone would like to discuss ideas around The Lacanian Real and its relationship with Deleuze's Becoming?
In essence, the trajectory of my doctoral thesis is headed in the direction of the Lacanian Real with respects to the following:
If the Lacanian Real is impossible then is it possible/how is it possible to represent the Real on television?
In others words: How can that which is un-representable be represented?
A counter to Lacan as an obvious choice is Deleuze and he does not believe in the real-possible distinction as then it would reduce things to the ontologically lesser category of the impossible. He changes things to the virtual and the actual and says the virtual is just as Real as the Real world but it is not corporeal in an actual, physical, tangible sense. Thus, I am seeking to discuss:
1. The radical differences between Deleuze and Lacan (Deleuzian Becoming)
2. My supervisor has pointed me to the works of Tim Dean and Katerina Kolozova's Beyond Sexuality and the Cut of the Real. The concept of fiction also plays a big part in my intervention, so aside from all the stuff Zizek writes does anyone have any other suggestions for readings?
Finally, does anyone know where Deleuze states he has a problem with the real-possible distinction?
Many thanks and Best wishes,
To assess the role of television in social change I am going to develop a questionnaire which will be simply a portion of demographic profiles of respondents, can anyone help regarding what variables of demography should i affix in my questionnaire??
Do you believe that today's home Tv viewer just continues to purchase an advertised product blindly without ever evaluating the product that they buy? Why?
The information disclosed in social media, television, radio and other media are mostly paid, and not always true.
However, people fully rely on this information. Thus, a disclosed and replicated lie becomes true, while a truth can become a lie.
I'm looking for a journal article I've come across before, but can't seem to find anymore. The article was about different aspects of television viewing and if those aspects effect how people respond to whatever media they are viewing. I think it was something like a meta analysis. The authors looked at around 50 different aspects of television from such as screen size, color, resolution, distance from screen, etc. The overall conclusion was that there was no differences in people's responses for the majority of the variables they looked at. Only one or two had any significant difference. Any help finding this would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a summary of my research design:
X: Continuous behavioral variable (i.e. frequency of viewing specific television content)
M: Continuous attitudinal variable
Y: Continuous attitudinal variable
Controlling for some other variables, I ran an SPSS PROCESS simple mediation model (Model 4), and I found significance for the direct path and one of the indirect paths. I wonder though - do I have to satisfy certain assumptions to be able to, in the same paper, report results from both the said PROCESS analysis as well as those from hierarchical regression where all the variables that I had entered into the PROCESS analysis? I have seen some papers that did this, but wanted to get more wisdom on this matter.
Can somebody share the following research article "Public Affairs Television and the Growth of Political Malaise: The Case of "The Selling of the Pentagon" by Michael J. Robinson 1976.

We need materials to manifacturing diffrerent lasers at different optical frequencies in order to be coded and transported via optical fibers and decoded at the end to be used in telephone , television and others applications such as printing systems.
I didn't find any sound literature on this . Still on safer side we tell people not to use mobile phones. Please guide me on this aspect
Is it probably that we can use a social network as YouTube to get full access to some films and TV series -even music and videogames- to do researching works?
Children under the age of four use tablets or mobiles, the television is always on: background television . Parents are permanently connected
I am just wondering if the television signals could be transmited through air instead of connecting cables. The concept of free space optics applies good here but the problem is in my research i want to use LASER light (low power) to be projected on any classical antenna and see the how the antenna is able to detect and receive the transmited message through air. I am having tough time to find a way to know how an antenna could receive the photons and how it will meet the range specififed for television signals
Considering the media modifications brought about by digital technologies, we are starting to talk about Post-cinema and about the need to update national and international legislation that defines and governs television.
How should television policy change to suit those technological changes, to prevent delving on previous media anchors (as pointed out by McLuhan's tetrad)?
I'm still looking for a good topic for my masterthesis about television. i want to write about the actual problems public television has and what they do against it. why are they loosing the young people?
I have looked at the ideas of gender schema and Stuart Hall's ideas on 'representation theories'. But I have not come across references to contemporary feminist theories in this context.
American, Turkish and Indian soap operas are very popular amongst women and they argue that such dramas reflect the societal realities, while others say its just an exaggeration. What's true?
I would like to explore how the media cover natural disasters and how their coverage influences public awareness and perception, among other things.
For example, do you think that there is a correlation between media coverage and funding disasters?
Please, share your thoughts and experiences.
For an evaluator, which method or process is the most appropriate to judge a video project like a film, a drama or a commercial especially in the context of impact in the community?
As the time goes mass media enrolls more and more into the low-quality short-sighted image and sensations based journalism. You see vividly the serious decline of journalism in television programmes and newspapers (with some exceptions). Only some internet portals, and, may be, radio and journals still maintain higher quality journalism. What is your opinion about the future of journalism in the coming years?

Aseerzadi is a popular Pakistani drama that highlights the theme of peers in the our society and how they marry twice and thrice in the name of getting male child who would continue their legacy. I want to inquire which mass communication theory should i apply to analyse the content of the drama?
I aim to identify the theme of the drama and also what are people's opinion about the drama?
News channels are supposed to give news, mirror image of society and are supposed to be serious. But increasing number of reenactment crime based shows and even horror shows are making these news channels seem like a circus channel.
For my studies I need to observe and follow up people that are working together in TV journalism projects, but I won't be able to observe their actions directly and personally, since this kind of work is being done at very different places and different times. Should I therefore rely on their self- monitoring?
Is social TV a new kind of online video (TV program, not UGC)? And those online videos are the program from TV?
Is social TV a new kind of TV program which added social media function or other interaction function?
- What is you point of view with regards to the importance of the audio-visual documentation of the research process and results, applied methods, showing step by step procedures? These details are often and easily surpassed or difficult to explain in writing or show through simple pictures.
- Anything we know has a real value as far as we are able to transmitted it to others. The better we transmit our message, our experimental results and procedure, our knowledge, THE BETTER WE MAKE OURSELVES UNDERSTOOD, the higher value our knowledge has. It is important to have your opinion, researchers from different countries, cultures, disciplines, specialties, professors, students and advisers of all ages.
