We provide a sub-channel partitioning based unequal error protection (UEP) scheme for a space-time block coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (STBC-OFDM) system. In such a scheme, video data is partitioned into high-priority (HP) and low-priority (LP) layers according to the importance of the data. At the receiver side, OFDM sub-channels are partitioned into high-quality (HQ) and low-quality (LQ) groups according to the estimated channel qualities. Based on the feedback of sub-channel partitioning results, the transmitter assigns HP and LP video data to the corresponding HQ and LQ sub-channels. Through theoretical analysis, we show there is indeed a significant BER difference between the HQ and LQ sub-channels, which can be exploited by UEP. Based on the analysis, we provide a criterion for determining the appropriate transmission power. Through computer simulations, we show that the proposed scheme offers significant performance gain compared to conventional methods. We also demonstrate that the scheme is the least sensitive to channel estimation errors among all compared schemes, and is hardly influenced by the Doppler spread. The feedback overhead can also be reduced with almost no performance penalty by bundling several neighboring sub-channels together and assigning them to the same group.
