Marvin Kitman, writing for The Los Angeles Times syndicate, called him “a leading thinker.” In the acknowledgements to his book Fast Forward: Hollywood, the Japanese, and the VCR Wars, James Lardner of The New Yorker wrote of Schubin that “he has the spectacularly rare ability to make technical matters clear to a nontechnical person.” Graham Binns of London’s Rediffusion Group said in the European publication Intermedia, “He has a complete mastery of the technical background to video. He rattles off data and ideas with fluency and with wit.”
