Format: Hardcover
This book by Jerry Whitaker requires a AAS in electronic Engeneering Technology and/or a understanding of TV, DVD Sattelitte, or Computers to grasp the techniques of digital decoders and encoders. Knowledge of Binary 1's and 0's in different size bytes is essential. Series to parallel conversion and digital to analog conversion is necessary to understand the manipulation of the serial data in the encoders transmission basics, and the compression and expansion of parallel data , with memory manipulation of the order of the frames of the raster. Digital Television Fundamentals:Design and Installation of Video and Audio Systems: by Michael Robin and Michel Poulin is an excellent prerequisite and follow up book to this one. The same requirements of digital data techniques are necessary... This book does not include the new decoder circuits used for transmitting and compressing the digital data, nor the circuitry of the monitors.

Format: Hardcover
The book covers many issues in DTV as well as TV and video in general. It seems that it was intended for those who would like to go wide but not deep into details. There are 4 pages describing general A/D & D/A, but only few short paragraphs for the Trellis Decoder and Data De- Interleaver of the ATSC standard. I expected to find in this book more about the new standards and less about the general background.
