The design and performance of a millimeter-wave video transmission system using 60-GHz band for indoor broadcasting-satellite (BS) signals transmission is presented. This system can transmit multiple video signals such as broadcasting signals and user-oriented signals to a television set indoors. To minimize the local oscillator's frequency offset and phase-noise effects, the system uses a remote-heterodyne scheme. Based on the concept, the system is developed to meet required carrier-to-noise-power-ratio (CNR) and 3rd-order intermodulation (IM). The BS transmission was experimentally done by using the transmitter and receiver setup. The results are very promising and show the feasibility of the system.
