Abstract:

"Digital Techniques in Broadcasting Transmission is the practical reference guide that broadcast engineers need in order to make the transition from analog to digital. It examines the principles underlying digital transmission and how they are being applied in the systems now emerging worldwide for digital broadcasting. This book provides guidelines on what will be necessary to convert existing systems to digital, and to continue satisfactory operation during the time that digital and analog services must coexist. Emphasis is on digital communication at the level of the practicing broadcasting engineer and the application of digital principles to high-powered broadcast transmission."--Jacket.
