The Digital Satellite TV Handbook

WAS £14.99 £8.99

Product description

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 the Handbook, 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.
