Digital Television Fundamentals
Digital television (DTV) is the transmission of audio and video data by digitally processed and multiplexed signals compared to analog and channel separated signals used by analog television. DTV represents the most significant evolution in television technology since color television in the 1950s. The transition from analog to digital broadcasting began around 2006 with many countries at various stages of adaptation. DTV provides new features that analog television cannot support including the need for less bandwidth and higher image resolution, transmission via several channels including terrestrial transmitters using antennas, digital cables and satellites, microwaves and the internet.
The book editors have gathered global experts to provide an overview of the developments in the field of DTV including fundamentals of human vision; colour vision; television systems and standards; video signal fundamentals; error correction for digital signals; audio compression; MPEG; digital video broadcasting primer and advanced television systems committee standards (ATSC).
The book will be useful to engineers, researchers and practitioners working in DTV and video systems and in electronics. It is also a useful reference for advanced students and researchers in digital television and broadcasting systems, electrical and electronics engineering and computer science.
