This article analyzes the channel coding stage in 8-VSB (8-level vestigial sideband) transmission for DTV (digital television) broadcast, proposed by ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee). We present BER (bit error rate) results for a codec simulator developed by the authors for the purpose of assessing the robustness of the ATSC 8-VSB coding stage in presence of an additive Gaussian noise channel and of impulsive channel noise surges. We discuss implementation aspects for the developed… CONTINUE READING
