The aim of the subject is to give basic overview of present and perspective communication systems, mainly in relation to signal transmission and measurement. Lectures and practices make students familiar with technical principles of systems, basic conception of transmitter and receiver and measurement of these systems. Subject is focused on multimedia systems; it means systems for voice, audio, video and generally data transmission. Practices are based on laboratory measurements.

Study targets:

Presenting prospective digital communication systems.
