Overview of ARIB Standards (STD-B29)

1. Overview

Standard Name Transmission System for Digital Terrestrial Sound Broadcasting
Enactment Date 05.31.2001
General Description

This standard specifies the transmission system for digital terrestrial sound broadcasting using the UHF and VHF bands.

In addition, the transmission system specified in this standard has been established as a private-sector standard in accordance with the November 29, 1999 Report of the Telecommunications Technology Council of the former Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications.


Keyword Description
Connection transmission Transmission form of ISDB-TSB signal assigned without guard band.

Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting for Terrestrial Sound Broadcasting

Broadcasting system for digital terrestrial sound broadcasting that configures the transmission band in one or three OFDM segment.

Hierarchy transmission Simultaneous transmission of OFDM segment group subjected to different transmission path coding.

Abbreviation of Digital Single Frequency Network

Network with a single frequency. Utilizing a strong OFDM features to interference of the radio waves of the adjacent broadcasting station of the same program.


Abbreviation of Digital Auxiliary Channel

Channel for measuring the transmission delay time of the main line system.


Abbreviation of Digital Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing

Each carrier is orthogonal to each other, multiplexing method of digital modulation for every each carrier.

OFDM segment OFDM segments with (1/14 of the TV channel bandwidth) basic bandwidth of the OFDM transmission signal obtained by adding a control signal carrier to the data carrier.
