Abstract: The paper deals with the utilization of MATLAB for simulation and analysis of the colored image transmission over multiple input multiple outputs (MIMO). In the proposed algorithm, we applied source coding scheme with convolution channel coding as well as space-time block coding techniques, associated with QAM modulation method, to improve colored image transmission performance. The data obtained from the colored image is encoded using STBC based on Alamouti transmitter diversity scheme in which we have used two transmitter antennas and two receiving antenna and two transmitter and one receiver also. The transmission is done with the help of Rayleigh fading and AWGN channel. With the availability of high data rates by MIMO channel. Images can be transmitted with high reliability. Simulation results show the the quality of the reconstructed image can be significantly improved over only using space time coding. The comparison has been done on the basis of quality of reproduced image by measuring image PSNR based on SNR and BER value for different system model is realized over Xilinx Virtex-4 XC4VFX100FFG1517-11C FPGA based WRAP board.
