About The Product

Now the standardisation work of DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) system is finished many broadcast organisations, network providers and receiver manufacturers in European countries and outside of Europe (for example Canada and the Far East) will be installing DAB broadcast services as pilot projects or public services. In addition some value added services (data and video services) are under development or have already started as pilot projects.

The new digital broadcast system DAB distinguishes itself from existing conventional broadcast systems, and the various new international standards and related documents (from ITU-R, ISO/IEC, ETSI, EBU, EUREKA147, and others) are not readily available and are difficult to read for users. Therefore it is essential that a well structured technical handbook should be available.

The Second Edition of Digital Audio Broadcasting has been fully updated with new sections and chapters added to reflect all the latest developments and advances.

Digital Audio Broadcasting:

  • Provides a fully updated comprehensive overview of DAB
  • Covers international standards, applications and other technical issues
  • Combines the expertise of leading researchers in the field of DAB
  • Now covers such new areas as: IP-Tunneling via DAB; Electronic Programme Guide for DAB; and Metadata

A comprehensive overview of DAB specifically written for planning and system engineers, developers for professional and domestic equipment manufacturers, service providers, as well as postgraduate students and lecturers in communications technology.
