From the Back Cover:

Whether in the area of computer systems, imaging, display, or compression schemes, the current technical landscape of television is a very different place than it was a few years ago. What better way to navigate this new frontier than with the landmark guide long-trusted by success-minded engineers and technicians: the Standard Handbook of Video and Television Engineering.

If you're involved in the design, production, installation, operation, and maintenance of video centers and broadcast stations, you'll find that no other source covers such a broad range of video and television technology - with an emphasis on practical applications - than the Handbook. Updated for the first time in a decade, this standard-setting reference brings you completely up to speed with:

* Digital technology for production, transport, and storage of video and audio signals

* Digital video effects

* Technical details of the DTV system

* Cable and satellite home distribution systems

* Compression technologies for audio and video

* New vacuum-tube and solid-state based transmission systems

* Video disc recording and reproduction

* Electronic editing

* And much more

Covering everything from the basic principles and formulae to the latest FCC mandates, the Handbook includes more than 150 topically organized articles - written by the foremost experts - that fall under 20 major sections. What's more, the accompanying CD includes a compendium of standards, links to organizations and companies of interest, archived technical material, and high-resolution test images.

Looking for a leading-edge resource that defines today's electronics discipline as applied to video? One that takes the current wisdom from the many fields of television technology, and pulls it all together in one commanding, ready-to-use volume? Standard Handbook of Video and Television Engineering, Third Edition is all this - and more.
