    Phase noise in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems destroys the orthogonality of the subcarriers and inter-carrier interference (ICI) is caused. In this paper, the ICI self-cancellation scheme is adopted to combat the ICI caused by phase noise in OFDM systems. Moreover, the error coefficients are defined and the theoretical expressions of carrier to interference ratio (C/I) w... View full abstract»

    In this paper, an efficient coded scheme for transmitting digital audio over the existing FM channel, by multiplexing it with the baseband FM signal, is described. Transmission of multiplexed signals in the FM baseband called FM-SCA (subsidiary communications authorization) has been previously used for low quality analog content and some low rate digital content. The investigated scheme opens up t... View full abstract»

    Data broadcast is a new kind of value-add service of DTV broadcasting and some data broadcast protocols have already been established. However, these protocols only describe the method for locating files in data streams, and a method for distribution of a large collection of files in one or more data streams is not provided. Research on this problem mainly focuses on how to decrease the wait time ... View full abstract»

    Broadcasting is a prospective approach to support near video-on-demand services with light communication overhead. By letting clients share channels, such approaches involve partitioning a video into segments and repeatedly broadcasting these segments in multiple channels. An early paper proposed a broadcasting scheme called RFS (recursive frequency splitting), which can significantly reduce clien... View full abstract»

    Video communication with quality of service (QoS) is an important and challenging task. The transmitted video stream must be able to afford the bandwidth variance and unavoidable packet loss in the Internet. In particular, fine-granular-scalability (FGS) video coding has been adopted by the MPEG-4 standard as the core video-compression method for streaming applications. From this inception, the FG...

    Accurate MPEG source models are needed to support high speed networks such as ATM and Internet. In this paper, we propose a video model called Gaussian auto-regressive and chi-square processes (GACS) for MPEG coded video traffic. The GACS models the sizes of MPEG I, P, and B frames according to the MPEG syntax I-frame>P-frame>B-frame. This is done by decomposing the process of each frame size into... View full abstract»

    Increasing land costs, ever more restrictive land use regulations and the public's impression that towers are aesthetically distasteful, have led to a continuing interest in physically small transmitting antennas for use by broadcasters operating in the 535-1705 kHz medium wave band. In this paper, the author provides initial computational and empirical data for two new compact antenna system type... View full abstract»

    As an effective technique for combating multipath fading and for high-bit-rate transmission over wireless channels, orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is extensively used in modern digital television terrestrial broadcasting (DTTB) systems to support high performance bandwidth-efficient multimedia services. In this paper, novel synchronization schemes, including timing, frequency of... View full abstract»

    Timing jitter, frequency offset, carrier phase jitter and sampling clock frequency offset are the main synchronization errors encountered by OFDM systems. As many literature studies have proved, OFDM systems are very sensitive to frequency errors. In this paper, an improved method for decimal frequency offset estimation in time domain is proposed. In addition, lots of simulations have proved that ... View full abstract»

    A new carrier frequency offset estimation scheme in the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system is proposed. The proposed algorithm is an extension of the Michele Morelli (M&M) algorithm. By dividing one training symbol into L>1 identical small blocks, the carrier frequency offset estimation range up to ±L/2 times subcarrier spacing can be obtained. The proposed algorithm c...

    A method for using sinusoidal transforms as an alternative to the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) wireless transmission methods is presented. These transforms satisfy the cyclic convolution properties of the DFT when used with a symmetric extension. Analysis of interference in OFDM systems reveals that under certain channel conditions or modul... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the method to calculate an objective measure of picture distortions. When the normalized mean score for a reference sequence is smaller than 1.0, the conventional method is inapplicable in calculating impairment units (hereinafter referred to as imps). We propose a new method to calculate imps in sensation domain along with a verification of its validity. The imps obtained i... View full abstract»

    This paper explores the techniques for measuring DTV signals received in an indoor environment at UHF. It is found that the mean and standard deviation of the received signals are dependent on spatial sampling interval and the number of samples. A minimum spacing of 0.2λ and a minimum number of 100 samples over a minimum length of 20λ are required for more accurate and meaningful con... View full abstract»
