A hybrid data transmission technique for multimedia satellite broadcasting is proposed. The main-channel data and sub-channel data are simultaneously transmitted using QPSK modulation and 2ASK modulation, respectively, but the latter modulation timing is offset by half the main-channel QPSK symbol length in time. The BER performance in a Gaussian channel, the transmission bandwidth, and the transmit power peak factor are theoretically analyzed for various impulse responses of the sub-channel transmit filter. It is found that the use of the sub-channel transmit filter having a sine impulse response minimizes the sub-channel BER while keeping the transmission bandwidth and the transmit power peak factor lower than those of CAPSK transmission.
