9780071375900: Data Broadcasting: Understanding the ATSC Data Broadcast Standard

A ROADMAP FOR IMPLEMENTING THE ATSC DATA BROADCAST STANDARD The ATSC Data Broadcast Standard provides the means to transform digital TV signals from plain vanilla audio/video to 57-flavor broadband digital data delivery, opening a universe of device and service possibilities. Authored by four of the standard’s lead writers -- Richard Chernock, Regis Crinon, Michael Dolan, and John R. Mick, Jr. -- Data Broadcasting is the first guide to the new ATSC standard.

These experts help you:


*Understand the concepts behind standard provisions for carrying any type of data over MPEG-2 data transport mechanisms
*Implement the standard in real-world service creation and rollouts
*Enable a new generation of set-top boxes, hand-held devices, and PC add-in cards for handling both data and streaming video
*Configure stand-alone data injection and data injection associated with video and audio programs
*Define the optimal transmittal method for any type of data
*Resolve system architecture, receiver-reference design, data categorization, and encapsulation questions
*Solve announcement, and discovery and binding mechanisms problems
*Avoid implementation pitfalls with encapsulation examples, illustrated layering, and buffer models

ROADMAP TO IMPLEMENTATION FROM KEY WRITERS OF THE STANDARD

Make sure your system works out of the gate—and get out of the gate faster—with this first guide to the new ATSC standard, from four of its lead writers

PRACTICAL GUIDE TO A REVOLUTIONARY STANDARD

The ATSC Data Broadcast Standard provides the means to transform digital TV signals from plain vanilla audio/video to 57-flavor broadband digital data delivery, opening a universe of device and service possibilities. This book tells you how—and how not—to perform this miracle and implement these marvels. Just as importantly, it tells you why to do it in certain ways.

COMPLEXITY CLARIFIED Complex standards such as the new ATSC A/90 confuse as often as they clarify. But this guide from lead writers of the ATSC Data Broadcast Standard can help you avoid head-banging and stumbles by explaining the ins, outs, ups, downs, whys, and wherefores of the standard’s provisions. When you understand why the standard was written the way it was, the correct steps in implementation make a lot more sense and seem less complex.

LET THE GUYS WHO WROTE IT HELP YOU IMPLEMENT IT Written by key creators of the standard—from IBM Research, SkyStream Networks, Intel Corporation, and others—Data Broadcasting can help you:


*Understand the concepts behind standard provisions for carrying any type of data over MPEG-2 data transport mechanisms
*Comprehend the MPEG-2 Systems standard, the foundation for all DTV data carriage
*Implement the standard in real-world service creation and rollouts with roadmap in hand
*Enable a new generation of set-top boxes, hand-held devices, and PC add-in cards for handling both data and streaming video
*Configure stand-alone data injection and data injection associated with video and audio programs
*Define the optimal transmittal method for any type of data
*Resolve system architecture, receiver-reference design, data categorization, and encapsulation questions
*Solve announcement, discovery, and binding mechanisms problems
*Avoid implementation pitfalls with encapsulation examples, illustrated layering, and buffer models
*Necessary for both emission and receiver design engineers

“A home-run.” --Jerry Whitaker, author of DTV, Second Edition

Aimed at engineers, technicians, and managers in TV, video, broadcast, telecom, and networking, this book closes the gap between broadcast and data communications. It’s the first in-depth look at practical applications of a standard that’s going to change the entire broadcast industry in a heartbeat. It is, in short, essential.
