6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 5 May 1999
Format: Paperback
The subject of the book lends itself well to long words, difficult concepts and "techno-babble". M Benoit presents the technology and science in a manner which avoids the confusion, that is presented in the other works I have seen on this subject.
This book, though not a definitive guide to DVB, MPEG-2 and digital television, will allow a new-comer to understand the principles behind the technology, while allowing an analogue TV engineer to easily make the transission to digital media.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent overview of the system perspective of a DVB system (satellite, cable. or terestrial). It includes a good discussion on MPEG-2 and transport and program streams.

Excellent overview for beginners, useful tables for experts. 14 Feb. 2000
By Moshe Haiut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Comprehensive, contains all the important diagrammes and thumb rules. I recommend this book to the novice as well as to experts. Readers who are familiar with signal processing and digital communication issues will find this book very interesting and a good source of knowledge; and those who are already DVB professionals will regard it as an excellent conclusion with all the important and useful numbers, tables, and diagrams.

Not a bible 28 April 2004
By the_shep - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not a bible on any topic related to digital TV. It's more of a synopsis that briefly discusses what's involved in encoding, transmitted, receiving, and decoding digital signals, with an emphasis on the standards being used in Europe.
I recommend this book for engineers new to the field of digital TV; but once you have an overall idea of how a digital system works, I recommend getting something more specific to your area. This book does not have any formulas or walk-through examples.
To quote the author from the preface, "This book does not aim to make the reader an expert in digital television... The main goal is to enable readers to understand the principles of this new technology, to have a relatively global perspective on it, and...to investigate further any particular aspect by reading more specialized and more detailed books."

Very impressive, laconic, and comprehensive explanation. 23 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Easy to read, with all the necessary diagrammes and illustrations, this book is a formidable source of information for everyone - from a novice (like me) to a to-be-professional. Without hiding the complexity of digital television, the author makes a systematic review of the situation. No stupid remarks, no empty words. Just facts and real advice. Excellent!
