For the last forty years, television has evolved fairly slowly. That might raise eyebrows in this age of on-demand content, but it’s important not to confuse streaming and binge watching with the technical process of creating television programming. Now, just as 40 years ago, cameras capture two-dimensional pictures that are projected onto a rectangular screen in our living rooms.
