Sample text

The fourth edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the increasing use of digital and networking techniques in all aspects of television and radio broadcasting. New chapters have been added to provide an overview of new-media applications by broadcasters and emerging standards in the broadcast industry. S. radio and television stations, but other methods of program delivery to the home are also covered, along with some of the different standards and technologies used in other countries.

Transmissions are in the UHF band using OFDM with QPSK or QAM. Video is QVGA resolution, and the number of program channels depends on the bandwidth allocated. Although, in theory, DVB-H services can be carried by a broadcast station along with DVB-T services in a single DTV channel, this has not turned out to be practical due to different reception considerations, and separate transmission networks for DVB-H services were generally implemented. Both free-to-air and subscription business models could be accommodated.

Therefore, in its simplest form, a radio or television broadcast station consists of two basic facilities: the studio site and the transmitter site. The studio is where the content is generated. The transmitter site is where the content is sent out over the air, in a point-to-multipoint, unidirectional fashion. ” But there are many individual components in each of these facilities that make up the chain from content generation to the reception of broadcast services by the viewer or listener. This tutorial provides an introduction to the technologies and equipment that make up these chains, and thereby constitute modern broadcasting systems.
