Most professional engineers working in broadcast transmission have been trained in the analog techniques used in the industry until now. Engineers who are familiar with analog TV broadcast systems are now faced with designing, operating and maintaining digital TV systems. Conversely, few engineers skilled in digital communication have experience in the high power and high voltage techniques demanded in broadcasting transmission. Digital Techniques in Broadcast Transmission is a practical reference guide for the broadcast engineer to make the transition from analog to digital. Emphasis is on digital communication at the level of the practicing broadcast engineer and the application of digital principles to high-powered broadcast transmission. This book provides, in an easy-to-understand comprehensive manner, the information required to educate engineers about the intricacies of digital television signal transmission. Engineers and managers involved in technical transmission issues will find this an essential resource to simplify the transition from analog to digital and will not want to be without this book.
