It provides an in-depth look at these subjects in terms of practical experience. In addition explains the basics of essential topics like analog television, digital modulation, COFDM or mathematical transformations between time and frequency domains.

The fourth edition addresses many new developments and features of digital broadcasting. Especially it includes Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV), 4K, HEVC / H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding), DVB-T2 measurement techniques and practice, DOCSIS 3.1, DVB - S2X, and 3DTV, as well as VHF-FM radio, HDMI, terrestrial transmitters, and stations.

In the center of the treatments are always measuring techniques and of measuring practice for each case consolidating the knowledge imparted with numerous practical examples. The book is directed primarily at the specialist working in the field, on transmitters and transmission equipment, network planning, studio technology, playout centers and multiplex center technology and in the development departments for entertainment electronics or TV test engineering. Since the entire field of electrical communications technology is traversed in a wide arc, those who are students in this field are not excluded either.
