Handbook of Mobile Broadcasting

DVB-H, DMB, ISDB-T, AND MEDIAFLO by Borko Furht and Syed A. Ahson
Publisher: CRC Press, Taylor and Francis, 2008

DVB-H is the standard for digital video broadcasting to handheld devices such as cell phones and PDA’s. This book is for systems engineers.

This is an e-book readable on Windows and Mac using Adobe Reader. You download it and have access for 21 days. If you have a good light laptop, this is more convenient than holding a physical book. However, for me, I have to wait my turn to use the living room PC.  The cost is as usual free for Ottawa residents, but non-residents can join for $50 per year which is cheaper than Safari though you can’t compare the selection.
