Television has not really changed very much since its first introduction in the 1950's. Now some 50 years later we are on the verge of a revolution ~ a total change in the technology, the programming and the media that will transform the entertainment industry forever. All this is possible with the advent of the new digital technology, and the techniques that have now been developed. This book gives a detailed introduction to these technologies and techniques, specifically in the area of terrestrial transmission.

Two main standards have been developed over recent years; the ATSC system in the US, and the DVB-T system in Europe.

These two systems are now being deployed in many countries around the world for transmission of the new digital services. This book starts with the detailed description of the digital data format used. It then talks about the compression algorithm MPEG-2 that allows so much data to be transmitted into the home. Both the transmission methods are then detailed with full explanation of the underlying theoretical techniques of 8-VSB and COFDM, including a full comparison of the two systems. Also included are detailed descriptions of the operation of the digital receiving devices, or set top boxes, used for the reception of both the standard and the high definition television formats. A section is also included for the more mathematically minded to allow a deeper understanding of the underlying theoretical principles. Included is a glossary of abbreviations, terms and expressions provided to allow someone new to the subject a quick start.
