Handbook on digital terrestrial television broadcasting networks and systems implementationiiiEditors’ ForewordIn 2002 ITU published its first Handbook on digital terrestrial television under the title Digital terrestrialtelevision broadcasting in the VHF/UHF bands1 as guidance to engineers responsible for the implementationof digital terrestrial television broadcasting (DTTB). In the Handbook, new digital broadcasting technologieswere explained in detail, for example a splendid description of the Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) codingthat is the basis of all past and present TV compression systems, as well as a very instructive chapter on signalpower summation.Most of that content are not repeated in this new Handbook on digital terrestrial television broadcastingnetworks and systems implementation. Therefore, the version 1.01, which was published by ITU in the year2002, has not lost value and should still be consulted.Since 2002, DTTB has tremendously evolved, not only in technical but also in regulatory aspects. For example,at the turn of the century, MPEG had just started to develop the compression scheme MPEG-4, and HEVCwas not known at all. In two sessions, in 2004 and 2006, the important ITU Regional RadiocommunicationConference RRC-06 was held in Geneva and agreed a new frequency plan for digital broadcasting in Region 1(except Mongolia) and in Iran. For all UHF stations, the Conference decided that the transition period fromanalogue to digital broadcasting would take place by 15 June 2015. Today, majority of developed countrieshave already introduced digital TV broadcasting and have closed their analogue TV services. However, manydeveloping countries have just startedSuccessive WRCs have identified new spectrum for the mobile service in the traditional UHF broadcastingbands. Consequently, spectrum for terrestrial TV broadcasting as well as for services ancillary to programmemaking or broadcasting (SAP/SAB) became scarcer within the existing UHF broadcasting bands. Morespectrum efficient transmission and compression schemes can only partly compensate for that loss as newrequirements for improved resolution, such as HDTV and UHDTV, demand significantly higher data rates.Also, new formats for multi-channel sound can need substantial amounts of transmitted data. So do the everincreasing amount of metadata and access services.Today, with the advent of broadband IP networks (wired and wireless), interactivity has become commonplace.Most modern TV sets are equipped with an interface for DSL or Wi-Fi in addition to the traditional antennainput for digital terrestrial, satellite and/or cable TV.This new ITU Handbook, entitled Digital terrestrial television broadcasting networks and systemsimplementation, concentrates on these new developments during the last 15 years. In this context, itcomplements ITU-D Guidelines for the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting2 which made use oftechnical, operational and procedural information from the ITU Radiocommunication Sector and directed itselfprimarily to the analogue-to-digital switchover in developing countries.Numerous experts of ITU-R Working Party 6A (Terrestrial broadcasting delivery) and of the parent ITU-RStudy Group 6 (Broadcasting service) have been involved in the development of this new Handbook.

1Part 1PART 1NETWORK ASPECTSIntroduction to Part 1The most dynamic and technically complex environment of TV content distribution is digital terrestrialtelevision broadcasting (DTTB). Traditionally, TV broadcasting served stationary receivers at home. Today’susers require information, infotainment and entertainment anywhere, at any time and on any device, if possibleinteractively and at the highest possible service quality. Modern broadcasting concepts try to cope with thesedemands that can only be satisfied by digital technologies. Digital terrestrial broadcasting can be designed towork with roof-top antennas but also with small antennas built into portable devices and for mobile reception.In case of a disaster, devices that do not depend on larger antenna installations are more likely to continueserving the public than, for example, satellite TV which relies on parabolic dish antennas.The service areas of terrestrial broadcasting plans are often interference-limited. The interference comes fromneighbouring broadcasting transmitters in the same and in adjacent channels, and from transmitters in otherservices. Terrestrial broadcasting needs careful frequency planning in order to make optimum use of theavailable frequency spectrum.The factors mentioned above need to be considered when designing and building terrestrial televisionbroadcasting networks. The information given in Part 1 should enable administrations and broadcasters, whenswitching from analogue to digital terrestrial broadcasting, or that are in the process of introducing digitalterrestrial television broadcasting, to choose the most effective way of implementation in accordance with theirindividual requirements, and to take as much advantage as possible from the digital technologies in terms ofspectrum resources, signal quality and the cost of introduction. Part 1 of this Handbook explores theseconsiderations.

3Chapter 1CHAPTER 1General aspects of digital TV broadcastingDigital broadcasting is a broadcast technology based on the transmission of audiovisual media information bybit streams. A broadcast signal is composed of video, audio and also includes data services such as teletext,subtitles (closed captions) or an EPG. In addition, descriptive and technical metadata are transmitted forprogramme identification and receiver configuration (e.g. information on the broadcast station, the appliedvideo and audio compression systems, on the sound channel arrangement or on control data for interactivity,aspect ratio and numerous others). Furthermore, access services such as audio-description or a sign-languagevideo can be incorporated within the broadcasting multiplex signal. Modern broadcasting makes use of a seriesof technologies which, together, allow for the creation of the broadcasting signal and its delivery to theend-users.31.1Recognizing trends in DTTBMedia technology continues to evolve in reaction to changing consumer needs and desires, and throughresearch and development. We need to respect and correlate these two elements if we are to serve thepublic [1.1].What the consumer finds attractive enough to buy depends on a range of factors. These begin with the kindsof content made available, continue with the absolute cost, the userʼs income, the user-friendliness ofthe equipment and of the services (make it simple for the end-users!), and include complements to TVbroadcasting – other delivery means which can make use of the equipment and can support it.1.2Broadcasting relies on interoperabilityOne of the important concepts of broadcasting is interoperability. Different systems or system elements caninterlink provided they are interoperable, i.e. they make use of agreed interfaces. Digital TV systems thus havetwo basic components:–Generic elements: These are elements which apply whatever the delivery system is (terrestrial, cable,satellite, etc.). They can benefit from common hardware and softw
