    The use of method of moments techniques has resulted in changes of some of the conventional thinking for medium wave directional antenna sample systems-that is the instrumentation for monitoring antenna system parameters. Sample loops on the antenna structures and toroidal current transformers in the feed systems have long been used to monitor directional medium wave antenna systems. This paper wi...

    In this contribution we present the results of a study on land mobile satellite channel models for satellite systems with multiple satellites. The slow fading of our channel model for several satellites is based on a Markov channel state model for joint processes while the probability density function (PDF) of the signal amplitude within each state is fitted to the Loo distribution. The correlatio... View full abstract»

    Providing real-time multimedia applications over wireless multi-hop networks is a challenging problem because the wireless channels are highly sensitive to delay, interference and topology changes. Multiple description coding (MDC), as a new emerging error-resilient technique, has been widely used recently in wireless video transmission. Its fundamental principle is to generate multiple correlated... View full abstract»

    This article presents and analyzes the multicast transmission problem of file download services to several users simultaneously in 3G mobile networks with MBMS (multimedia broadcast multicast services). MBMS is the second major enhancement in the downlink of the 3G standard after HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access). Whereas HSDPA supports high speed point-to-point (p-t-p) transmissions up to... View full abstract»

  • A Correlation for the Detection of Time and Frequency Offsets

    A correlation is proposed for use to detect time and frequency offsets in a received signal in a digital transmission system. Applications include time and frequency synchronization in a single frequency network; pre-distortion for high power amplifiers in a transmitter. The correlation is formed with the products of two pairs of transmitted samples and received samples. The same correlation can b... View full abstract»

  • Selective Disparity Estimation and Variable Size Motion Estimation Based on Motion Homogeneity for Multi-View Coding

    Multi-view video coding (MVC) is an ongoing standard in which variable size disparity estimation (DE) and motion estimation (ME) are both employed to select the best coding mode for each macroblock (MB). This technique achieves the highest possible coding efficiency, but it results in extremely large encoding time which obstructs it from practical use. In this paper, a fast DE and ME algorithm bas...

    In this paper, an arbitrary frame rate transcoding joint considering temporal and spatial complexity of frames in the adaptive length sliding window is proposed. The length of a sliding window can be adjusted according to bandwidth variation in order to decide the number of skipped frames. The proposed method preserves significant frames and drops non-significant ones using the complexity measurem... View full abstract»

    In this study we evaluated the bit-rate efficiency of current hardware H.264 encoders as compared to that of established MPEG-2 hardware encoders. To estimate bit-rate efficiency, we measured the subjective video quality of MPEG-2 encoded material processed at three bit rates: 8, 12, and 16 Mbps, and determined the bit-rate at which H.264 encoded material produced similar subjective video quality....

  • “AQUA”: A New Audio Quality Monitoring Algorithm for the Performance of DRM Receivers in Fading Channels

    This paper presents a new audio quality monitoring algorithm: ldquoAQUArdquo for assessing the performance of Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) receivers. AQUA targets performance evaluation of consumer grade receivers in fading channels objectively. Consumer grade DRM receivers do not generally possess a Receiver Status and Control Interface (RSCI), which prohibits the possibility of analysing digital... View full abstract»

  • On the Optimal Cyclic Delay Value in Cyclic Delay Diversity

    Publication Year: 2009 , Page(s): 790 - 795

    In this paper, we propose a method to determine the optimal cyclic delay value of cyclic delay diversity (CDD) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. As the cyclic delay value increases, we can get signal to interference and noise ratio (SINR) gain by the diversity effect, while SINR loss increases because of channel estimation errors. If the optimal cyclic delay value obtai... View full abstract»

  • Seamless Handover of IPTV Streams in a Wireless LAN Network

    A robust mechanism to enable seamless handover of streamed IPTV in a WLAN is presented. Handover in a wireless network is usually based on signal strength measurements, but that approach does not consider levels of congestion within the network. Here, the case of stationary nodes with varying levels of network congestion is considered. A scheme that analyzes the jitter is used to establish the rel... View full abstract»

  • Re-Multiplexing ISDB-T BTS Into DVB TS for SFN

    The Single Frequency Network (SFN) allows a single TV channel to cover a great area in the same frequency, increasing the spectrum efficiency and signal quality. In this case, all the programs are re-multiplexed into a Transport Stream (TS) and distributed to the re-transmitter stations. The Integrated Digital Services Broadcasting-Terrestrial (ISDB-T) has been projected to operate in SFN, and use... View full abstract»

  • Performance of Feedback Cancellers for T-DMB On-Channel Repeaters

    Publication Year: 2009 , Page(s): 810 - 817

    This paper presents a feedback canceller (FC) for T-DMB repeaters. Though the conventional FC of T-DMB repeaters has a good feedback cancellation performance, it distorts the recovered signal's out-band spectrum. This spectrum distortion problem is very crucial for commercializing T-DMB repeaters. The feedback canceller with pre-whitening filters (PWFs), which estimates the feedback channel using ...

    In this paper we propose an independent channel precoder for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems over fading channels. The design of the precoder is based on the information redistribution of the input modulated symbols among the output precoded symbols. The proposed precoder decreases the variance of the instantaneous noise power at the receiver produced by the channel varia... View full abstract»

  • Multiple Adaptive Frequency Filtering for OFDM Channel Estimation

    In orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems using pilots, channel estimation is performed on pilots and then interpolated over the time and the frequency axis. As time-interpolated estimates have a different mean square error than pilot estimates we propose the use of multiple adaptive filters for exploiting the frequency correlation of the channel. Each filter operates on a diffe... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we first propose a novel multi-points square mapping (MSM) scheme. Then, we describe in detail how to combine the proposed MSM scheme with conventional partial transmit sequence (C-PTS) scheme, named as M-PTS, to reduce the PAPR of OFDM signals. Compared with C-PTS, the proposed M-PTS scheme needs not to submit side information while keeping almost the same performance of PAPR reduc... View full abstract»
