In order to realize next generation digital terrestrial television broadcasting (DTTB) systems, the currently deployed Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting Terrestrial (ISDB-T) is still essential due to the spectrum-scarcity. This paper proposes a layered division multiplexing (LDM) scheme to simultaneously transmit ISDB-T stream and a secondary data stream over a common frequency band. The next generation DTTB system can be obtained by combining the ISDB-T and the secondary data streams. In the proposed scheme, we deploy the primary layer for transmission of ISDB-T signal and the secondary layer for transmission of secondary data stream both employed space time block coding. In addition, we only adopt partial LDM to reduce the interference between two systems, since the transmission capacity of the secondary layer exceeded the minimum requirement due to reuse of primary layer.
