Transmission methods for terrestrial UHDTV broadcasting have been actively studied in order to provide enhanced broadcasting service in many countries. Most of the countries are considering multi-carrier transmission methods based on OFDM and some of them have performed UHDTV experimental broadcasting by using the DVB-T2 standard with the adoption of an improved data compression technique. However, since single carrier transmission methods, which are known to be susceptible to multi-path fading, could remedy this defect by using the SC-FDE method where a frequency domain equalizer is utilized in the receiver, they may achieve a similar transmission performance with multi-carrier transmission methods. In consideration of these circumstances, we compare the transmission performances of two-type methods to provide a decision criterion on a suitable transmission method for UHDTV broadcasting.
