Publisher Comments:

This second edition provides first-hand information about the most recent developments in the exciting and fast moving field of telecommunications media and consumer electronics. The DVB group developed the standards which are being used in Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, and many other parts of the world. Some 150 major TV broadcasting companies as well as suppliers for technical equipment are members of the project. This standard is expected to be accepted for worldwide digital HDTV broadcasting. This book is readable for non-experts with a background in analog transmission, and demonstrates the fascinating possibilities of digital technology. For the second edition, the complete text has been up-dated thoroughly. The latest DVB standards are included in three new sections on Interactive Television, Data Broadcasting, and The Multimedia Home Platform.

Synopsis:

Digital Video Broadcasting is the name for a long list of innovative technical systems for television, radio and data broadcasting. In the world of consumer electronics, DVB systems are the most important development worldwide and this contains first hand information about the most recent developments in consumer electronics used in Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia.

Synopsis:

The Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB) is an industry-led consortium of over 300 broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, software developers, regulatory bodies and others in over 40 countries committed to designing global standards for the delivery of digital television and data services. Ulrich Reimers is the chairman of its Technical Module and is therefore able to provide up-to-date insider information. This second edition of the book was revised and substantially extended by a new team of authors led by Professor Reimers. New chapters include Data Broadcasting, Solutions for Interactive Services, and the promising Multimedia Home Platform (MHP). Substantially revised are those on MPEG-2 systems and multiplexing, the standard for terrestrial transmission and its decoding technique, and the first chapter, the introduction to the DVB world.

Synopsis:

This book provides first-hand information about the most recent developments in this very hot area of telecommunications media and consumer electronics. In doing so, it describes the DVB European standard, which will be used in Europe, USA, Canada, Latin America, Japan, and South Africa. Moreover, it gives an overview of modern digital transmission technology. Source coding, channel coding, and digital modulation are described in detail. The second edition has been thoroughly updated. The latest DVB standards are included in three new sections on Interactive Television, Data Broadcasting, and The Multimedia Home Platform.
