5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book that provides a lucid understanding of DTV 9 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The book is a really good one, and brings home the complicated concepts of Digital TV to the understanding of even a non-technical person.
However, the title is slightly misleading. It could be specified as a beginner's guide to Digital TV as the emphasis is on fundamental concepts more than detailed Technical aspects.

1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing and misleading 12 Nov 2000
By Kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Honestly, I was very disappointed after I read through this book. What drove me to buy this book (from the title of this book) was that I was expecting this book could introduce and explain some new concepts and new technologies which are widely used in digital broadcast industry now, such as digital compositing, nonelinear editing, MPEG, digital transmission etc. But what I got after I read this book? Only some rough images of some figures about digital signal, compression, and how to avoid flickering. I think the author of this book wasn't quite sure what kind of reader he aimed at. The book used too many analogies for technicians, but too many details for generic readers.(The author was trying to explain how to avoid CRT flickering through graphics, tables and equations in almost 50 pages, which I think is totally unnecessary for generic readers.) The book omited many important parts of digital TV. Perhaps, I was misleaded by the title of this book.
