Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial (DVB-T) is the most widely deployed digital terrestrial television system worldwide with services on air in over thirty countries. In order to increase its spectral efficiency and to enable new services the DVB consortium has developed a new standard named DVB-T2. Latest and next-generation wireless broadcasting standards, such as DVB-T2 or DVB-NGH, are considering distributed multi-antenna transmission in order to increase bandwidth efficiency and signal quality. Full-Rate Full-Diversity (FRFD) Space-Time Codes (STC) such as the Golden code and LDPC code are studied for that purpose.
