  Communication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Mass communication" is a more specialized academic discipline focused on the institutions, practice and effects of journalism, broadcasting, advertising, public relations and related mediated communication directed at a large, undifferentiated or segmented audience.
As the technology evolved, communication protocol also had to evolve; for example, Thomas Edison had to discover that hello was the least ambiguous greeting by voice over a distance; previous greetings such as hail tended to be lost or garbled in the transmission.
As regards human communication these diverse fields can be divided into those which cultivate a thoughtful exchange between a small number of people (debate, talk radio, e-mail, personal letters) on the one hand; and those which disseminate broadly a simple message (Public relations, television, cinema).

 USCCB - (Office of Media Relations) - Pastoral Plan for Church Communication   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Communication and community lie at the heart of the Church's mission because God's self revelation draws every believer into the faith community.
Although it is up to diocesan pastoral communication plans to spell out local goals, this national pastoral communication plan recognizes that it is in our parishes that the Church most directly communicates with her people, especially through God's word proclaimed in the liturgy and through a variety of educational programs.
Communication support must apply in a particular way to those Catholics who work within the communication industry and have both an ongoing and a greater chance of influencing it and, through it, society.

 Communication Process
Communication can best be summarized as the transmission of a message from a sender to a receiver in an understandable manner.
From a business perspective, effective communication is an absolute must, because it commonly accounts for the difference between success and failure or profit and loss.
It is through the communication process that the sharing of a common meaning between the sender and the receiver takes place.

 Journal of Consumer Affairs: The influence of communication source and mode on consumer adoption of technological ...
Communication is the critical process of diffusion of technological innovations, yet there is little research in the consumer behavior literature investigating how communication affects consumers' decision to adopt technological innovations.
This paper examines the effects of communication source and modality on consumers' adoption of technological innovations using the 1999 University of Michigan's Survey of Consumers data.
Specifically, a typology of communication sources and modality is presented, and the respective and interrelated influences of source and mode on consumers' adoption of electronic banking are examined.

 Communication source - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A source is one of the basic concepts of communication and information processing.

 CM109 Developing Effective Communications, MU Extension
In contrast, some people limit their definitions of communication rather narrowly, saying "communication is the process whereby one person tells another something through the written or spoken word." This definition, from a book written by a journalist, seems reasonable for those in that field.
Within such an all-embracing system, the communication process is seen as a part of a larger social process, both affecting it and being in turn affected by it.
The source might be one person, a group of people, or a company, organization, or institution such as the University of Missouri.

 The Engel Scale. `Tell it often´: detailed description of Engel Scale in Christian communication
That is, the communicator puts the gospel into his or her own words, or presents someone else's words (such as by using a tract or other gospel presentation), keeping in mind the listener's ability to understand the message.
In the arena of interpersonal communication, there are at least four sources of noise that hamper the transmission of the gospel from person to person.
The listener becomes part of the communication process and, as a result, his mind, heart and will are more likely to be engaged in reasoning through the personal implications of the gospel.

One of the most important concepts in the design of point-to-point communication systems is the separation principle.
It says that an optimal communication system may be designed in two independent steps: First, the source is compressed optimally.
More precisely, given the description of the statistical behavior of source and channel, we found explicit formulae for the channel input cost function and the distortion measure that make the overall system information-theoretically optimal.

 PSU's Media Lab Source Effects Study
The results indicate that different communication sources attributed to an identical news story elicit different reactions to the same story.
The findings from this study indicate the presence of psychological differences on at least one of the four criteria between the four ontologically distinct communication sources.
Most importantly, this study develops a typology of sources based on ontological distinctions, and argues for a closer consideration of the concept of "source" in communication research.

An animal small in relation to the sound wavelength is unable to produce body 'sound shadow' (refraction of sound around the body) and must use another mechanism: destructive interference.

Shannon says that a communication system involves a communication source, which is what produces a message to be communicated to another source.
The receiver reconstructs the message from the channel to the destination, which is the final source for which the message was intended.
Shannon says that an information source makes choices from a set of alternatives when sending a message, and the destination is aware of the alternatives in advance, and of the restraints under which the source made its decision.

A multicast address is used for one-to-many and many-to-many communication in an environment where users and network devices either explicitly or implicitly communicate their desire to receive the communication.
In contrast to unicast, a source that uses IP multicast generates and sends only one copy of the information that is desired by multiple receivers.
When using the Internet Protocol (IP) as the basis for multicast communication, the requests for and delivery of the communication is fundamentally controlled by referencing certain IP addresses or their MAC-based equivalents.

The distributions that lead to a cost-distortion operating point that cannot be improved have to satisfy simple-to-describe conditions that involve the source and channel statistic as well as the cost and distortion measures.
Sometimes the source and the channel are "almost" matched to begin with.
Of particular interest is when the desired match is obtained by means of low-complexity small-latency transmitter/receiver pairs such as those consisting of memoryless maps or linear filters.
