In this paper, we use MATLAB software to build the physical layer transceiver of the Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial System (DVB-T) and Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) is added into the transmitted signal during its transmission. The transmitted signal passes through modulation, demodulation, encoding and decoding processes the resulting demodulated signal is compared with the transmitted signal to calculate its Bit Error Rate (BER). Three modulation formats, QPAK, 16-QAM and 64-QAM are simulated and through various Signal to Noise (SNR) ratio to evaluate the system performance. Various encoding techniques such as Reed Solomon Code, Convolutional Code and Viterbi Decoding [1-6] have been implemented and through simulation to make detailed system performance analysis and comparison. detailed system performance simulation, analysis and comparisons.
