Rather than carrying one data carrier on a single radio frequency RF channel, COFDM works by splitting the digital data stream into a large number of slower digital streams, each of which digitally modulates a set of closely spaced adjacent sub-carrier frequencies. Three figures of bandwidth are available. Retrieved 26 November It provides many facilities and enables a far more efficient use of the available radio frequency spectrum than the previous analogue transmissions. Using this principle DVB-T broadcasters are able to target two different types of receiver with two completely different services.

DVB-T makes use of many modern technologies to enable it to deliver high quality video in a broadcast environment. The length of the Guard Interval can be chosen.

The higher the level of error correction that is applied, the greater the level of supporting error correction data that needs to be transmitted.

What is DVB-T: Digital Video Broadcasting

The close spaced signals would normally be expected to interfere with each other, but by making the signals orthogonal to each other there is no mutual interference.

Examples include the UK’s Freeview. This would have backwards compatibility, but allow additional services and flexibility as well as a number of features to future-proof it. One of the key elements of the radio or air interface is the choice of the modulation scheme for DVB-T. Space-division Frequency-division Time-division Polarization-division Orbital angular-momentum Code-division. It is a trade-off between data rate and SFN capability.


DVB-T – Wikipedia

Normally several television broadcasts may be carried on a single transmission and in addition to this several audio channels may be carried as well. The official terrestrial broadcasting standard in Romania is DVB-T2and implementations started in The data to be transmitted is shared across all the carriers and this provides resilience against selective fading from multi-path effects.

DVB-T as a digital transmission delivers data in a series of discrete blocks at the symbol rate. Digital Video Broadcasting Television transmission standards Video formats. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex, OFDM is a form of signal format that uses a large number of close spaced carriers that are each modulated with low rate data stream.

Supplier Directory For everything from distribution to test equipment, components and more, our directory covers it. It is possible to operate SFNs which do not fulfill the guard interval condition if the self-interference is properly planned and monitored.

Views Read Edit View history. The DVB-T transmission is capable of carrying a very significant level of data. A single frequency network, or SFN is one where a number of transmitters operate on the same frequency without causing interference. Retrieved from ” https: Byit was the standard that was conrxant in more than 35 countries and over 60 million receivers deployed and in use.

Many countries, including the UK are moving towards a complete switch-over from analogue to digital, with a resultant digital dividend releasing a significant amount of bandwidth for other services.


It provides many facilities and enables a far more efficient use of the available radio frequency spectrum than the previous analogue transmissions.

This has an impact on the resilience to reflections and the spacing between transmitters conrxant a single frequency network.

Retrieved 1 April The lower order modulation formats like QPSK do not transmit data as fast as the higher modulation formats such as 64QAM, but they can be received when signal strengths are lower. Therefore when planning a network, evb-t areas could not use the same channels and this greatly increased the amount of spectrum required to cover a country. Three figures of bandwidth are available. It is possible to tailor the bandwidth of the transmission to the bandwidth available and the channel separations.

Ministry of Transportation, Information Technology and Communications. Using this technique, two completely separate data streams can be modulated onto a single DVB-T signal. Small “gap fillers” may even be used to enhance indoor coverage for DVB-T.

When fewer carriers are used, each carrier must carry a higher bandwidth for the same overall multiplex data rate. Archived from the original on 16 April Ddvb-t 26 November
