Product Description

From the Back Cover

The only single, comprehensive textbook on all aspects of digital television

The next few years will see a major revolution in the technology used to deliver television services as the world moves from analog to digital television. Presently, all existing textbooks dealing with analog television standards (NTSC and PAL) are becoming obsolete as the prevalence of digital technology continues to become more widespread. Now, Digital Television: Technology and Standards fills the need for a single, authoritative textbook that covers all aspects of digital television technology.

Divided into three main sections, Digital Television explores:

  • Video: MPEG–2, which is at the heart of all digital video broadcasting services

  • Audio: MPEG–2 Advanced Audio Coding and Dolby AC–3, which will be used internationally in digital video broadcasting systems

  • Systems: MPEG, modulation transmission, forward error correction, datacasting, conditional access, and digital storage media command and control

Complete with tables, illustrations, and figures, this valuable textbook includes problems and laboratories at the end of each chapter and also offers a number of exercises that allow students to implement the various techniques discussed using MATLAB. The authors′ coverage of implementation and theory makes this a practical reference for professionals, as well as an indispensable textbook for advanced undergraduates and graduate–level students in electrical engineering and computer science programs.
