    Course Summary


    Digital television is about re-invention of the television industry via digital technology, just like digital computer re-invented the computing and documenting industries. This course is about Analog and Digital TV basics and relevant signal processing. The course covers the fundamental technology that lies at the heart of compression - particularly MPEG - and high definition television (HDTV), and Digital TV in general. It is recommended as an introductory course for the MPEG-2 or DTV course.

    Course Objectives

    At the completion of this course, students will have a basic understanding of how analog video is digitalized, carried, and tested. Students will gain an understanding of the processes involved in video encoding and decoding. They will be familiar with the color space and colorimetry, gamma processing, etc. Students will learn to identify common problems with digital video quality, their causes, and solutions. In addition, students will learn basic analog and digital video standards, principles standards are based on and terminology.
