How to build a complete FPGA-based DVB-T transmitter

Playlists: '23c3' videos starting here / audio / related events

As DVB-T is the key technology for terrestrial broadcasting for the next decades, this lecture tries to explain how it works: It covers the way of raw pixel data over MPEG2 video and audio encoding and via multiplexing of several streams and programs to the actual generation of the COFDM signal used for transmission. As the team has built a DVB-T transmitter, we will give a in-depth insight in how things are really done - including a demonstration of the transmitter.
-> For that we plan to stream the content of the 23C3 lectures locally on Alexanderplatz using TV channel 22. Don't forget to bring your DVB-T stick. For more information look at the DVB-T project description.
