I'm a sound engineer with extensive live and recorded experience. My electronics and acoustics are pretty strong IMO but I've never had any extensive interaction with video/film production and post timecode hardware. What's the best book/website/whitepaper to learn the nuts-and-bolts technical aspects of that stuff. Yamaha Sound Reinforcement Handbook gives some discussion of it, but it's short and out of date.
