In this paper, we consider transmission of a Gaussian source over a Gaussian channel under bandwidth compression in the presence of interference known only to the transmitter. We study hybrid digital-analog (HDA) joint source-channel coding schemes and propose two novel coding schemes that achieve the optimal mean-squared error (MSE) distortion. This can be viewed as the extension of results by Wilson et al. , originally proposed for sending a Gaussian source over a Gaussian channel in two cases: 1) Matched bandwidth with known interference only at the transmitter, 2) bandwidth compression where there is no interference in the channel. The proposed HDA codes can cancel the interference of the channel and obtain the “optimum performance theoretically attainable” (OPTA) of the AWGN channel with no interference in the case of bandwidth compression. We also provide performance analysis in the presence of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) mismatch where we expect that HDA schemes perform better than strictly digital schemes.
