Overview

The Digital Satellite TV Handbook and companion CD-ROM will serve as your complete interactive course in the new digital satellite TV technologies. This textbook, which provides a comprehensive overview of all the digital satellite TV platforms currently in use world-wide, includes the essential satellite coverage maps and transmission parameters that readers will need to receive
digital TV services from any location around the world. It
also presents those aspects of digital video compression and high
definition TV that are of the highest relevance to installers,
technicians, and other satellite professionals working in the global
direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV industry. The Digital Satellite TV
Handbook analyzes the hardware requirements of digital DTH receiving
systems by comparing and contrasting the new digital TV technologies
with earlier analog TV transmission systems, so that readers can
readily grasp all of the details required to make the transition from
the analog era of yesterday to the new all-digital world of the
future.



The Digital Satellite TV Handbook is based on the author's extensive
experience as an instructor for private corporations and trade
associations around the world. To facilitate the learning experience,
the author has included a series of "Quick Check" exercises and answer
keys so that readers can determine for themselves whether or not they
have adequately understood the various course segments provided.
Mathematical formulas that are relevant to course content also are
presented at the end of each chapter. Best of all, the companion CD-ROM
version of theHandbook, which may be opened by any Internet browser
software program, contains numerous Internet hyperlinks. Readers can
click on any textbook hyperlink to immediately access hundreds of
additional pages of supplementary information from the world-wide web or
obtain information updates concerning the current operations of
satellite system operators and digital TV programmers around the globe. The CD-ROM also gives readers access to full-color versions of all the
textbooks, footprint maps, charts and other illustrations.
