This paper is a thorough study of a digital television broadcasting system adapted to the small mountainous island of Mauritius. A digital TV LAN was designed with MPEG-2 signals. The compressed signals were transmitted using DVB-T and QAM modulators. QAM-16 and QAM-64 modulators were designed and tested with a simulator under critical conditions of AWGN and phase noises. Results obtained from simulation have shown that Digital video broadcast with a single frequency network (SFN) is possible in Mauritius with QAM-64 and QAM-16 modulators applying COFDM mode of transmission. However, this study has also shown that QAM-16 modulator had a better performance at low AWGN values (less than 12 dB) and can be adopted for Mauritius Island, provided that the number of transmitted channels is not high enough.
