Japanese terrestrial digital broadcasting (ISDB-T) began in 2003. To spread its signals throughout the country, optical fibers will be used to complement radio-wave networks. This paper describes recent applications of optical transmission of ISDB-T. It also describes our research on re-transmission with 40-GHz Radio On Fiber technology.
