Abstract

This paper deals with an experimental laboratory assessment of new channel profile modes in the transmission of DVB-T/H portable and mobile TV over fading channels. These new profiles called PI (Pedestrian Indoor), PO (Pedestrian Outdoor), VU (Vehicular Urban) and MR (Motorway Rural) are originally from the Celtic Wing TV project. The DVB-T/H performance was tested in a laboratory environment using R&S test and measurements equipments. The results of the BER before and BER after Viterbi decoding and MER (Modulation Error Rate) were evaluated as the objective criteria for the DVB-T/H portable and mobile TV reception.
