From the Publisher"Dr. Reimers has been described as the Father of the DVB...and no one is better qualified to write about [its] developments... A real strength of this book is that in every case it not only provides the detailed technical information about the part of the system that is under consideration, but it also explains the background requirements that the engineers were striving to satisfy, and goes on to explain why the various technical decisions were arrived at. Having worked your way carefully through the chapter on source coding of video signals, for example, you begin to understand what the original difficulties were, what the various options were, and why the particular solutions were chosen ... As well as satisfying its main aims, DIGITAL VIDEO BROADCASTING is an excellent reference book which covers most aspects of digital television engineering, and the author has helpfully gathered together in one place the key technical facts that would otherwise require you to have access to a dozen other books. Whether you are searching for information on digital coding systems, on compression, JPEG, the differences between MPEG1 and MPEG2, or whether you need to know how several different types of signals can be multiplexed together, or what the effects of using different error correction coding parameters will be, the information is there in the book. Equally importantly, you can actually find what you are looking for, because the index has been compiled with care. There is an extensive and useful bibliography which will be helpful for those readers who might want to know more about particular topics, and a comprehensive list of acronyms and abbreviations relating to digital broadcasting ... If you want a technical book to explain about digital broadcasting - this is certainly the one to buy."
