TABLE OF CONTENTS
2 Speakers at VISCOM ‘71
3 ICOGRADA Congress and exhibition
The diagram below tries to clarify the content of the VisCom 71 Congress on the Learning Industry. The difference between VisCom 71 and other conferences on visual communication is that it is attempting to combine a number of disciplines which are affecting the industry.
In this way it is hoped that the problems will be viewed in their totality and so reveal the relationships between the various activities and their interdependence.

13 Audio-visual hardware
The possibilities in new technical developments of masscommunication can always be of interest to graphic designers. As the introduction of off-set litho printing has extended the powers of designers whose work is in printing, so also the development of new machines and facilities for displaying moving pictures can extend the powers of designers who are moving into the audio-visual field.
On this page we show some items of hardware which may help to make audio-visual communication easier in the classroom and in every situation where good audio-visual design is needed.
