Hand Held Analog Television Over WiMAX Executed in SW
Source: University of Victoria
This paper describes a device capable of performing the following tasks: it samples and decodes the composite video analog TV signal, it encodes the resulting RGB data into a MPEG-4 stream and sends it over a WiMAX link. On the other end of the link a similar device receives the WiMAX signal, in either TDD or FDD mode, decodes the MPEG data and displays it on the LCD display. The device can be a hand held device, such as a mobile phone or a PDA. The algorithms for the analog TV, WiMAX physical layer, WiMAX MAC and the MPEG encoder/decoder are executed entirely in software in real time, using the Sandbridge Technologies' low power SB3011 digital signal processor.
