    This paper presents the implementation procedures and field test results of a Distributed-Transmission Network (also referred to as "DTx network" or "DTxN" throughout the paper) consisting of three coherent translators. As will be explained later in the text, a network of coherent translators, which is called "distributed translator network", is one of the three methods of implementing a DTxN. The...

    With the increasing demand of users in the broadcasting and communication services, coverage and interference prediction techniques need to be more accurate and applicable under different conditions. No single propagation model satisfies all the variations observed by the signal. Tuning of the existing models and development of new models are continuing and ongoing processes. With this objective i... View full abstract»

    Lately, short antennas and Crossed Field Antennas (CFA) have attracted broadcast and amateur community attention. The CFA antenna has been developed in the last decade of the 20th century, trying to obtain a compact transmitting antenna for low and medium frequency AM bands. The CFA is intended to be used in order to get a low profile antenna and a supposed performance similar or better compared t... View full abstract»

    Cyclic delay diversity (CDD) is a simple and elegant technique to exploit transmit diversity in a MIMO-OFDM system by artificially increasing the frequency-selectivity of the equivalent channel. In this paper, we study the application of CDD in digital audio broadcasting (DAB), which is well motivated by the mismatch analysis between the channel inherent diversity and the capability of the DAB cha...

    Space-frequency coded (SFC) and channel coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (COFDM) is considered under narrow-band interference (NBI). Analytical expressions for the bit error probability (BEP) are derived for OFDM with SFC in a frequency-selective fading environment. It is shown that SFC increases the resistance of COFDM against the NBI and reduces the BEP considerably. Specific att... View full abstract»

    As different types of wireless networks are converging into an all-IP network, i.e., the Internet, it can be expected that in the near future video-on-demand (VoD) will be widely applied to many interesting services, and users can access these services using heterogeneous terminals via heterogeneous wired/wireless access networks. Many periodic broadcasting protocols have been proposed to reduce t... View full abstract»

    The conventional motion-compensated temporal wavelet transform using the 5/3 filter produces GOP-boundary artifacts, i.e., a drop in picture quality at the boundaries of groups of pictures (GOP). A simple and efficient method is proposed in this paper to reduce the GOP-boundary artifacts and improve the overall performance of the transform. With this method, a group of pictures to be temporally tr... View full abstract»

    Video transmission over unreliable channels may suffer from the data loss or corruption. To facilitate the transmission, video content is compressed to save the bandwidth. The compression algorithms remove the redundancies in the video signal, meanwhile increasing the dependencies among symbols in the compressed bit-stream. Thus, when errors occur, they may propagate in both space and time. Among ... View full abstract»

    For multimedia network services, bandwidth reservation levels for video transmissions are conventionally defined using traffic descriptors that remain static over the entire playback duration of the video transmissions. Aimed at addressing the bandwidth wastefulness of using the static reservation, renegotiated Constant-Bit-Rate (RCBR) mechanism has been proposed to perform dynamic bandwidth alloc...

    One of the primary objectives for media-on-demand systems is the reduction of bandwidth requirements. In this article we show a way how some bandwidth can be saved at the beginning of a media stream transmission. This saving is accomplished by omitting segments at their first transmission if the second transmission is in due time. To increase the number of omissions we propose an algorithm which o...

    Multi Protocol Encapsulation (MPE) is today the dominant method for encapsulating IP data into the MPEG-2 Transport Stream so they can be conveyed over digital television platforms (DVB or ATSC). Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE) is a new alternative to MPE, providing simplicity, efficiency and configurability. This paper presents the principle and benefits of ULE, approaches the issu... View full abstract»

  • Channel codes based on hidden puncturing with applications to hybrid in band on channel digital audio broadcasting systems

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (352 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this work, a new approach of designing channel codes for partial band interference channels based on "Hidden Puncturing" is introduced. This technique does not require explicit estimation of the interferer. We investigate the performance of specially designed rate 1/2 convolutional codes with Viterbi decoding and rate 1/2 Turbo codes in an example scenario with partial band FM interference. For...

    The recent Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) transmission technique is gaining popularity as a preferred technology in the Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) emerging standards. In standards 802.16-2004 and 802.16e, the basic allocation units are comprised of sub-channels and OFDMA time symbols; each sub-channel is a group of sub-carriers, so that all the sub-channels are consider...

    Based on a nonlinear two-dimensional (2-D) regression model, we analyze the OFDM system performance with respect to the operation block size and pilot density. Specifically, we propose a regression model based channel estimation for the OFDM system with multiple transmit antennas. To obtain the proper estimation, we introduce the guidelines for designing pilot values and an expectation-maximizatio... View full abstract»

    Commercially viable free DTTV will depend on adoption of new technologies, some already available, that will in turn generate new business models. These technologies will permit new real and virtual channels through more efficient spectrum usage and dynamic sharing of the maximum data rate among several applications. The ongoing evolution of software-based receivers will provide the backbone for r... View full abstract»
