A prototype of a digital television terrestrial broadcasting system has been implemented according to the European DVB-T standard. The first step in the construction of this prototype involved parameter optimization via simulation. This paper presents the optimization process of the system parameters and the final achieved BER performance. Important design aspects such as interleaving, convolutional puncturing codes, Viterbi decoding, pilot-based channel correction and optimal pilot power are considered. The DVB-T standard offers some suggested values of the C/N ratio needed to achieve the desired BER requirements in the receiver. However, they have been obtained assuming ideal channel correction and synchronization. Simulation results are provided here in non-ideal conditions
