From the Back Cover:

The revolution continues... the definitive, bestselling book on DTV--fully up-to-date. The first edition of DTV: The Revolution in Digital Video unveiled the many new applications for every important innovation in DTV (Digital Television) and high-definition video imaging--the hottest technology to come along since color TV. Since its publication, the world of DTV has transformed at a dizzying rate. Building on the previous edition's runaway success, this state-of-the-art guide once again brings video and broadcasting engineers and technicians up to speed with the all latest developments in DTV. If it's new, and it has to do with changes to standards or advances in technology, you'll find it here in this much-needed, just-in-time primer. DTV, Second Edition, brings you: new FCC details on DTV licensing and applications; the ATSC'S Top Down report-a critical inventory of the various equipment systems and their interfaces; the latest SMPTE standards: SMPTE 305M, Serial Data Transport Interface; SMPTE 308M, MPEG-2 4:2:2 Profile at High Level; and SMPTE 310M, Synchronous Serial Interface for MPEG-2 Digital Transport Stream; proposed revisions of two vital SMPTE standards: SMPTE 292M, Bit-Serial Digital Interface for High-Definition Television Systems; and SMPTE 247M, 1920 x 1080 Scanning and Analog and Parallel Digital Interfaces for Multiple Picture Rates; new implementation information relating to the European DVB system; an insightful look at the harmonization of the ATSC DTV system and the European DVB system. Using concept-clarifying examples, schematics, and mathematics, expert author Jerry Whitaker covers everything from applications (professionals, medical, military, industrial, telecommunications, computer design, and MIS), to video and audio compression, to receiver systems and display devices, to video measurement techniques. What results is the most current, essential look at DTV yet-one that you'll refer to time and again.
