      Abstract: In this paper, we present laboratory and field test results of layered division multiplexing (LDM) and time division multiplexing (TDM) technologies based on Advanced Television Systems Committee 3.0. The presented field test results include analysis in several scenarios such as rooftop, indoor, and mobile receptions. In order to provide performance comparison of the LDM and TDM technologies, reception power (field strength) and successful reception rate are measured for all the considered scenarios. For in-depth analysis in real field environment, further field measurements such as threshold of visibility, marginal (minimal) reception power, and erroneous second ratio are used for rooftop, indoor, and mobile receptions, respectively. The laboratory and field test results show that the LDM technology not only shows superior performance compared to the TDM technology in all the considered scenarios (rooftop, indoor, and mobile receptions), but also enables broadcaster to efficiently provide a variety of services (e.g., mobile, pedestrian, indoor, and stationary services) with different robustness within a single radio frequency channel.

  • R-FFT: Function Split at IFFT/FFT in Unified LTE CRAN and Cable Access
    • Authors: Akhilesh S. Thyagaturu;Ziyad Alharbi;Martin Reisslein;
      Pages: 648 - 665
      Abstract: The remote-PHY (R-PHY) modular cable network for data over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) service conducts the physical layer processing for the transmissions over the broadcast cable in a remote node. In contrast, the cloud radio access network (CRAN) for long-term evolution (LTE) cellular wireless services conducts all baseband physical layer processing in a central baseband unit and the remaining physical layer processing steps toward radio frequency (RF) transmission in remote nodes. Both DOCSIS and LTE are based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing physical layer processing. We propose to unify cable and wireless cellular access networks by utilizing the hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) cable network infrastructure as fiber fronthaul network for cellular wireless services. For efficient operation of such a unified access network, we propose a novel remote-fast-Fourier transform (R-FFT) node that conducts the physical layer processing from the FFT module toward the RF transmission, whereby DOCSIS and LTE share a common FFT module. The frequency domain in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) symbols for both DOCSIS and LTE are transmitted over the fiber between remote node and cable headend, where the remaining physical layer processing is conducted. We further propose to cache repetitive quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) symbols in the R-FFT node to reduce the fronthaul bitrate requirements and enable statistical multiplexing. We evaluate the fronthaul bitrate reductions achieved by R-FFT node caching, the fronthaul transmission bitrates arising from the unified DOCSIS and LTE service, and illustrate the delay implications of moving part of the cable R-PHY remote node physical layer processing to the headend. Overall, our evaluations indicate that the proposed R-FFT node can effectively support unified DOCSIS and LTE services over the HFC cable plant while substantially reducing the fronthaul bitrate requirements of the existing CRAN structures.

  • Efficient Inter-View Motion Vector Prediction in Multi-View HEVC
    • Authors: Jae-Yung Lee;Jong-Ki Han;Jae-Gon Kim;Truong Q. Nguyen;
      Pages: 666 - 680
      Abstract: When multi-view video sequences are encoded, the efficient motion vector prediction (MVP) is one of the most important techniques to increase the coding performance. The predictive MV should be highly correlated with the actual MV of the current block to be encoded. In this paper, we explain the inefficiency of the MVP algorithm in the multi-view high efficiency video codec (MV-HEVC) standard. In order to solve the inefficiency problem, we propose an enhanced advanced motion vector prediction algorithm in which the geometry interrelation between two neighboring views is derived based on epipolar geometry, similarity transform, and affine transform, and then predicted motion vectors (PMVs) for efficient MV coding are generated using obtained geometry relation. The experiment results show that the proposed scheme outperforms conventional MV-HEVC with a 1.32%-1.19% coding gain because it provides more efficient PMVs than conventional algorithms.

  • Fuzzy SVM-Based Coding Unit Decision in HEVC
    • Authors: Linwei Zhu;Yun Zhang;Sam Kwong;Xu Wang;Tiesong Zhao;
      Pages: 681 - 694
      Abstract: The latest video compression standard, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), has greatly improved the coding efficiency compared to the predecessor H.264/AVC. However, equipped with the quadtree structure of coding tree unit partition and other sophisticated coding tools, HEVC brings a significant increase in the computational complexity. To address this issue, a coding unit (CU) decision method based on fuzzy support vector machine (SVM) is proposed for rate-distortion-complexity (RDC) optimization, where the process of CU decision is formulated as a cascaded multi-level classification task. The optimal feature set is selected according to a defined misclassification cost and a risk area is introduced for an uncertain classification output. To further improve the RDC performance, different regulation parameters in SVM are adopted and outliers in training samples are eliminated. Additionally, the proposed CU decision method is incorporated into a joint RDC optimization framework, where the width of risk area is adaptively adjusted to allocate flexible computational complexity to different CUs, aiming at minimizing computational complexity under a configurable constraint in terms of RD performance degradation. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can reduce 58.9% and 55.3% computational complexity on average with the values of Bjønteggard delta peak-signal-to-noise ratio as -0.075 dB and -0.085 dB and the values of Bjøntegaard delta bit rate as 2.859% and 2.671% under low delay P and random access configurations, respectively, which has outperformed the state-of-the-art fast algorithms based on statistical information and machine learning.

  • Radio Resource Allocation for Multicast Services Based on Multiple Video
    • Authors: Alejandro De La Fuente;José Joaquín Escudero-Garzás;Ana García-Armada;
      Pages: 695 - 708
      Abstract: Mobile broadcast/multicast video services have become highly demanded in mobile networks and require effective and low-complexity radio resource management (RRM) strategies. This paper proposes an RRM strategy based on multicast subgrouping and the scalable video coding (SVC) technique for multicast video delivery that focuses on reducing the search space of solutions and optimizes the aggregated data rate (ADR). The results in terms of ADR, spectral efficiency, and fairness among multicast users, along with the low complexity of the algorithm, show that this new scheme is adequate for real systems.

  • An Integrated Broadcast-Broadband System That Merges ISDB-T With HbbTV 2.0
    • Authors: Rafael Sotelo;Jose Joskowicz;Nicolás Rondán;
      Pages: 709 - 720
      Abstract: This paper shows that the coexistence of HbbTV applications and ISDB-T broadcasting is possible, paving the way to adopt HbbTV as a global hybrid standard. It presents the design of a prototype of a hybrid television system that integrates the ISDB-T broadcast standard with HbbTV applications, using the integrated broadcast and broadband (IBB) technologies standardized by ITU. Currently, each IBB television standard is associated with one digital television standard, leading to unique and different systems. We have designed, developed, and tested a complete hybrid television system, combining both, ISDB-T and HbbTV. The prototype includes the design of the internal architecture of a hybrid TV terminal that tunes on-air ISDB-T signals and can execute associated applications developed according to the HbbTV 2.0 standard guidelines, which was originally designed for DVB networks. The designed system supports different types of synchronization mechanisms between the broadcast ISDB-T signal and the associated HbbTV applications, including the MPEG timing and external media information standard. Five different HbbTV applications that include the use of companion screens were developed, and executed on the prototype.

  • HbbTV-Compliant Platform for Hybrid Media Delivery and Synchronization on
           Single- and Multi-Device Scenarios
    • Authors: Fernando Boronat;Dani Marfil;Mario Montagud;Javier Pastor;
      Pages: 721 - 746
      Abstract: The combination of broadcast and broadband (hybrid) technologies for delivering TV related media contents can bring fascinating opportunities. It is motivated by the large amount and diversity of media contents, together with the ubiquity and multiple connectivity capabilities of modern consumption devices. This paper presents an end-to-end platform for the preparation, delivery, and synchronized consumption of related hybrid (broadcast/broadband) media contents on a single device and/or on multiple close-by devices (i.e., a multi-device scenario). It is compatible with the latest version of the Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV) standard (version 2.0.1). Additionally, it provides adaptive and efficient solutions for key issues not specified in that standard, but that are necessary to successfully deploy hybrid and multi-device media services. Moreover, apart from MPEG-DASH and HTML5, which are the broadband technologies adopted by HbbTV, the platform also provides support for using HTTP Live Streaming and Real-time Transport Protocol and its companion RTP Control Protocol broadband technologies. The presented platform can provide support for many hybrid media services. In this paper, in order to evaluate it, the use case of multi-device and multi-view TV service has been selected. The results of both objective and subjective assessments have been very satisfactory, in terms of performance (stability, smooth playout, delays, and sync accuracy), usability of the platform, usefulness of its functionalities, and the awaken interest in these kinds of platforms.

  • New PTS Schemes With Adaptive Selection Methods of Dominant Time-Domain
           Samples in OFDM Systems
    • Authors: Kang-Seok Lee;Hoon Kang;Jong-Seon No;
      Pages: 747 - 761
      Abstract: In orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems, high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of OFDM signals is one of the most important problems. As a solution to the PAPR problem in OFDM systems, the partial transmit sequence (PTS) is a fairly suitable scheme due to its PAPR reduction performance and distortionless characteristic. However, high computational complexity is a serious problem in the PTS scheme. In this paper, in an effort to reduce its computational complexity, new PTS schemes are proposed using dominant time-domain samples of OFDM signals. Although the proposed PTS schemes use dominant time-domain samples in a manner similar to several existing low-complexity PTS schemes, we propose more efficient selection methods for dominant time-domain samples. The proposed PTS schemes lower the computational complexity compared to the conventional PTS schemes while achieving the optimal PAPR reduction performance.

  • Optimal Design of Cascade LDPC-CPM System Based on Bionic Swarm
           Optimization Algorithm
    • Authors: Yu Zhang;Qingyu Li;Ling Huang;Keren Dai;Jian Song;
      Pages: 762 - 770
      Abstract: The direct-to-home satellite digital video broadcasting has been fast developed in the past decades, and the continuous phase modulation (CPM) is an alternative modulation scheme with the advantages of constant envelope and high spectral efficiency for the band-limited channel and non-linear amplifiers of the satellite transponder. In this paper, CPM cascaded with irregular low density parity check (LDPC) code is studied. A practical system model with global interleaving is proposed for the optimization of degree distribution of the LDPC codes, and code word design is obtained with a modified progressive edge-growth algorithm. Simulation results combined with theoretical analysis clarify the effect of signal-to-noise ratios and two important CPM parameters (modulation index h and correlation length L ), providing guidance for system design. Simulation on bit error rate performance show the validity of the proposed algorithm. This paper systematically solves the optimal system design of cascade irregular LDPC-CPM and is of great significance for future satellite broadcasting.

  • Spectrum Efficient DSI-Based OFDM PAPR Reduction by Subcarrier Group
    • Authors: Md. Sakir Hossain;Tetsuya Shimamura;
      Pages: 771 - 777
      Abstract: High peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) is a long-standing problem of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. Although there have been a plethora of proposals presented to date, most of the proposals sacrifice spectral efficiency to attain low PAPR. In this paper, a concept of subcarrier group modulation (SGM) is proposed to transform those spectrum inefficient schemes into spectrum efficient ones. The SGM scheme groups available subcarriers, and assigns one extra bit to each group depending on one of two different sets of constellation, thereby freeing some subcarriers for PAPR reduction. At the receiver, the constellation set used in a particular group is determined by the maximum-likelihood detection. The SGM scheme can be integrated to different PAPR reduction schemes. In this paper, it is integrated with the dummy sequence insertion (DSI) scheme. The DSI with SGM can attain the same spectral efficiency as the conventional OFDM does. Through simulations, it is found that it can achieve PAPR almost similar to that the conventional DSI scheme does without degrading BER performance significantly over both additive white Gaussian noise and Rayleigh fading channels. In addition to the PAPR reduction application, the proposed scheme can be used to improve throughput of any conventional OFDM systems.
