Abstract

What we believe to be a novel system for the distribution of high-definition video streams in a residential environment is demonstrated. The system utilizes impulse radio ultrawideband (IR-UWB) technology integrated with a fiber-based distribution network. The pulses are directly generated in the optical domain, and the receiver is implemented with a carrier recovery system for the demodulation. The system was built and tested to demonstrate errorfree operation of the distribution network and the receiver. Spectrum shaping by varying the pulse position within the bit slot to optimize system performance is also examined.
