In this letter, DAB system employing multiple antenna scheme is considered for high capacity transmission. In the MIMO-DAB system, the transmission rate is augmented efficiently by increasing the number of antennas, and thus the multi-channel estimation process is required. So, this letter proposes a new phase reference symbol structure which can be adapted to the multi-channel estimation, and investigates the channel estimation performance based on the semi-blind processing using the time-domain windowing. Simulation results have been shown that the MIMO-DAB system with multi-antennas can achieve the high-rate transmission for multimedia broadcasting.
