Concepts of Multimedia Processing and Transmission

- SFN: All transmitters operate on a single Radio Frequency (RF)
- MFN: Each transmitter operates on a different frequency

- Terrestrial broadcasts are omnidirectional
- Multiple copies of the same signal may arrive at the receiver with slightly different delays and thus interfere with each other
- Multipath = (direct path signal + reflected signal + refracted signal)
- Intersymbol Interference (ISI)
- Limits the bit rate that may be achieved

- The OFDM modulator consists of the block in the diagram that is labeled 'IDFT', which stands for inverse discrete Fourier transform.
- In reality, the actual process carried out is the inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT), because the IFFT is, as the name suggest, a fast way to calculate the IDFT.

- The IDFT calculates the following equation:

- The signals are received at the antenna,
- The signals are I/Q down-converted from RF to generate the real (I) and imaginary (Q) streams,
- Low-pass filtered (LPF) and digitized in the analogue to digital converters (ADC, one ADC for each stream).
- Following the ADC, the cyclic prefix is stripped off and the remaining sampled values are serial to parallel converted and once there is a full block of samples
- The DFT is calculated (in reality the FFT is calculated as the FFT requires far fewer multiplications to be carried out than the DFT).

- N = 5 bits are mapped into 1symbol of duration Ts
- Each symbol bit is modulated onto a different carrier frequency using on-off keying (OOK)
- Carriers are DC, fs, 2fs, 3fs, 4fs
- fs = 1/Ts

- Bits Per Carrier
BPSK = 1

QPSK = 2 (4QAM)

16QAM = 4

64QAM = 8

- Bits Per Symbol
- BPSK = N
- QPSK = 2N
- 16QAM = 4N
- 64QAM = 8N

- Receiver waits a short period of time called the guard interval, Tg, before starting to process the received symbol
- Ensure receipt of all delayed versions of the direct path signal

- Processing entails
- Determining which of the N= 5 carriers are received
- Demodulating the subcarrier modulated symbols to recover the bits (QPSK, 16QAM etc)

IT 481, Fall 2006

- If the subcarriers are orthogonal they do not interfere with each other
- Simplifies the construction and recovery of the bit-symbol-bit stream sequence

- If the subcarriers are cleverly spaced this orthogonality is preserved in the presence of multipath
- Orthogonality is implemented by spacing the subcarriers at multiples of 1/Ts

IT 481, Fall 2006

- Two signals x and y are orthogonal if:

- If the two signals do not overlap in either time or frequency they are orthogonal
- However the important case here is when they do.

Guard Interval avoids intersymbol interference

It lowers the maximum encoded bit rate

Typically Tg = Ts/4

For MFM networks

For SFN networks

- Since a FFT and IFFT are used the nearest powers of 2 are:
- 2048 (1705)
- 8192 (6817)
