This hands on, multi-media package provides a motivating introduction to fundamental concepts, specifically discrete-time systems, for beginning engineering readers. This class-tested learning package can also be used as a self-teaching tool for anyone eager to discover more about DSP applications, multi-media signals, and MATLAB.

Presents basic DSP concepts in a clear and intuitive style. Integrated laboratory projects related to music, sound and image processing and new MATLAB functions for basic DSP operations are also included.

Appropriate for readers interested in mastering fundamental concepts in today's electrical and computer engineering curriculum.


This text is designed to introduce undergraduate students to digital signal processing (DSP) and real signals. The authors take a multimedia approach that concentrates on sound and image signals and their manipulation using the methods of DSP. A CD-ROM, which is seen as being more important that the text, contains demos, labs, exercises, homework problems with solutions, and many actual signals and sound files that can be viewed with a Web browser or imported into MATLAB.
