Summary Digital television is a multibillion-dollar industry with commercial systems now being deployed worldwide. In this concise yet detailed guide, you will learn about the standards that apply to fixed-line and mobile digital television, as well as the underlying principles involved. The digital television standards are presented to aid understanding of new systems in the market and reveal the variations between different systems used throughout the world. Discussions of source and channel coding then provide the essential knowledge needed for designing reliable new systems. Throughout the book the theory is supported by over 200 figures and tables, whilst an extensive glossary defines practical terminology. This is an ideal reference for practitioners in the field of digital television. It will also appeal to graduate students and researchers in electrical engineering and computer science, and can be used as a textbook for graduate courses on digital television systems.
