    The transition plan from the analog (NTSC) to digital terrestrial television (DTTV) in the USA was based on a simplified version of the Longley-Rice service prediction algorithm, and a link budget that mimicked the traditional planning factors for NTSC. It is now clear that the service prediction and the link budget both have serious shortfalls. This paper provides the formalism required for the d... View full abstract»

    A fixed terrestrial broadband wireless system such as MMDS (Multipoint Microwave Distribution System) is a cost effective solution for cable coverage to the immediate surrounding rural area. This wireless system can be operated with the existing cable headend and the same subscriber-end cable modem. Such a system works well with clear line-of-sight transmit/receive antennas. However, in near-line-... View full abstract»

    High population density and the presence of many more motorcycles than cars make the noise environment in Taiwan different from that in other countries. There is growing concern about the electromagnetic effects within this environment. With the measured radio noise, the minimum suggested receive power in an urban environment ranges from 354 MHz to 426 MHz. We measured the properties of noise at a... View full abstract»

    A transmitter identification system for DTV distributed transmission network using embedded pseudo random sequences is investigated. Different orthogonal pseudo random sequences and their suitability for transmitter identification are discussed. Code generators are developed to study the auto-correlation and cross-correlation properties of the Kasami sequences. To speed up the identification proce... View full abstract»

    A heterogeneous hybrid computational electromagnetics method is presented, which enables different parts of an antenna simulation problem to be treated by different methods, thus enabling the most appropriate method to be used for each part. The method uses a standard frequency-domain moment-method program and a finite-difference time-domain program to compute the fields in two regions. The two re... View full abstract»

    In modern multimedia applications, heterogeneous hosts may get involved in a complicated multicast communication paradigm. For facilitating the analysis on resource reservation in such an environment, a useful model for describing the multicast communication paradigm, termed the CP graph, is presented in this paper. Based on this model, we develop a set of reservation modeling frameworks, respecti... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new group management protocol called Received-initiated Group Membership Protocol (RGMP) for IP multicasting. The dominant group management protocol on the Internet to date is the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). Unlike IGMP based on a query/reply model, an RGMP host actively takes responsibility to refresh group membership on the neighboring multicast routers. Each... View full abstract»

    Many essential multimedia applications rely on video-on-demand technology to deliver a video to different users. A number of periodic broadcast techniques have been proposed for the cost-effective implementation of such systems. Most of these techniques would either try to minimize the server bandwidth, user bandwidth, user storage, user access latency to the video, or a combination of some of the... View full abstract»

    The rapid increase in the development of digital video systems has generated a strong need for objective video quality metrics. Two methods are presented in this work. One is the Gabor difference analysis (GDA) full reference method, and the other is the reverse frame prediction (RFP) no reference video quality method. Both methods are based on the multi-channel properties of the human visual syst... View full abstract»

    The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) General Model for estimating video quality and its associated calibration techniques were independently evaluated by the Video Quality Experts Group (VQEG) in their Phase II Full Reference Television (FR-TV) test. The NTIA General Model was the only video quality estimator that was in the top performing group for both the 525-li... View full abstract»

    This paper studies modeling approach of MPEG-4 VBR video traffic based on multifractal multiplicative model. Multiscale analysis reveals that the multiplier distribution is different in style on different time scales. Based on statistical characteristics of the multipliers, a composite modeling approach is proposed: Gaussian distribution is used to fit multiplier distribution at large time scales,...

    High peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of the transmitted signal is a major drawback of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). In this paper, we propose a modified selective mapping (SLM) technique for PAPR reduction of coded OFDM signal. In this technique, we embed the phase sequence, which is used to lower the PAPR of the data block, in the check symbols of the coded OFDM data block... View full abstract»

    A new nonlinear companding transform scheme is proposed to reduce the peak-to-average ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals. By exploiting statistical distribution of transmitted OFDM signals, the proposed scheme effectively reduces the PAPR by compressing the peak signals and expanding the small signals, while maintaining the average power unchanged by properly...

    In this paper, we propose an adaptive power distribution algorithm which aims at improving the spectral efficiency in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) under the condition that the target bit error rate (BER) should be maintained and the transmit power threshold should not be exceeded. This algorithm is based on the iterative mechanism. In every iteration, the power and the corresp... View full abstract»
