Overview for Monochrome and Colour Television
The text is based on the CCIR 625-B monochrome (black and white) and PAL-B and G colour television standards as adopted by India and many other countries. The American and French TV systems have also been given due coverage while presenting various aspects of the subject starting from television camera to the receiver picture tube. Keeping in view the fact that colour and monochrome telecasts will co-exist in Indian for at least a decade, the author has included relevant details and modern techniques of both the systems. Conceptually the book may be considered to have four sections. The initial chapters are devoted to the essentials of transmission, reception and applications of television without involving detailed circuitry. The next fourteen chapters explains basic design considerations and modern circuitry of various sections of the receiver. Topics like TV games, cable television, CCTV, remote control, automatic frequency tuning, automatic brightness control, electronic touch etc. are also discussed. The third section is exclusively devoted to the colour television transmission and reception. All the three colour television systems have been described. Chapters 27 to 30 are devoted to complete receiver circuits-both monochrome and colour, electronic instruments necessary for receiver manufacture and servicing, alignment procedure, fault finding and servicing of black and white and colour receivers. The complete text is presented in a way that students having basic knowledge of electronics will find no difficulty in grasping the complexities of television transmission and reception.
