Digital Image and Audio Communications Stanley N. Baron Mark I. Krivocheev As we reach the centennial of wireless communications, it is becoming apparent that we are just beginning to scratch the surface of this seemingly unlimited frontier. Digital Image and Audio Communications examines how the broadcasting, communications, and computer industries are converging because of their shared use of digital imaging and audio technology. This book offers an overview of the critical developments in digital wired and wireless communications with emphasis on the role of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a special agency of the United Nations, in establishing a framework for global information exchange. The authors have developed a generic model of a digital communications system, which provides a basis for understanding the current state of digital communications and where the technologies are headed. Much information is also provided on the technology needed to meet the ever-increasing demands for higher-quality, more complex communications systems, for which mobility, interactivity, and interconnectivity are the watchwords. In the pages of Digital Image and Audio Communications, you’ll learn about:
  • Protocols, packets, and headers
  • The Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG-2)
  • Video and audio compression
  • Single carrier systems and Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Modulation (COFDM)
  • High Definition Television (HDTV) and Advanced Television Services
  • Multiplexing of vision, sound, and data, and the MPEG-2 based transport
Whether you’re responsible for investigating and utilizing new technologies within the television, cable, telephony, or multimedia industries, or you simply have an interest in the evolution of communications technologies and their future, you will find Digital Image and Audio Communications well worth reading.
