Student Text: Coverage includes consumer and business orientated video equipment, color and monochrome television, and cable television. Video equipment coverage includes video tape recorders, disk players, video cameras, and videotext units. Cable TV coverage explains two-way cable systems, scrambling methods, long-distance links, and fiber optics. There are several new chapters providing state-of-the-art coverage on televisions and video systems.

This new edition provides increased coverage in the use of solid-state technology. This technology contributes to the increased use of lowvoltage, lightweight, and highly portable video equipment. This edition covers the expanded use of digital signals, including a studio use of digital videotape recorders (VTRs). With the increased use of additional TV channels, this edition includes greater coverage of cable television signals. New coverage includes the use of fiber optics for additional capacity in distribution lines. This increased capacity also allows for additional communication services, including expanded music services and computer modems. Facsimile coverage was also expanded because of the greater use in transmitting documents. Emphasis is placed on home entertainment systems that use different types of video signals, including conventional programming from broadcasters and cable networks, VCRs, and closed-circuit security monitoring systems. In addition, coverage includes home theater systems with large-screen televisions with A/V (audio, video) type receivers and surround sound. This edition also includes coverage of Direct Satellite Broadcast (DSB). The book continues to place emphasis on block diagrams as opposed to detailedcircuit analysis. Mathematical calculations require a basic understanding of algebra.
