Television principle is another optional subject in the seventh semester of engineering. If you are a student of Electronics and Communications engineering then you will be having this choice. It depends on college to college on the number of optional they offer. Suppose you have television principle then you can take it as it will fetch you more marks in the end semester exams. If you doing your BTECH/BE from a University then television principle will surely be there in the optional subjects.
Television principle is very easy to understand and learn compared to other subjects such as Analog IC CMOS subject. You can easily score good marks and can increase your CGPA overall. We highly suggest you to take up this subject in your seventh semester.
Here is the list of good books which you can have for Television Principle :
- R.R. Gulati, “Monochrome Television Practices, Principles, Technology and servicing, Second edition – PDF File, New age International Publishes, 2004 (Module 1,2,4 and 5)
- R.R. Gulati, “Monochrome and colour television”, New age International Publisher, 2003 (Module 1,3 and 4)
- A.M. Dhake, “Television and Video Engineering”, Second Edition, TMH, 2003
- S.P. Bali, “Colour Television, Theory and Practice”, TMH, 1994.
We highly suggest you to buy the books from the publishers websites as these books are rarely available on shopping websites online. The first book Monochrome television practices is a pdf file of the book which you can download for free.
Below is the most common syllabus and Important topic of Television Principle followed by most of the colleges :
