The increasing interest in MIMO (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output) systems has given rise to a prolific research activity in recent years. Both theoretical and practical issues have been studied. However, so far few MIMO testbeds or prototypes have been built for DVB-T or future standards. In this paper, a novel 2 × 2 MIMO testbed specifically designed for evaluating the performances of a DVB-T2 MIMO system is presented. The description of signal processing is detailed including a new scheme to estimate the MIMO channel matrix. Finally, measurement results with different polarization schemes are presented for typical scenarios, obtaining higher capacity in LoS situations using polarization diversity.
