To adapt the transmission schemes in wireless communications, it is useful for the transmitter to have actual knowledge of the channel's behavior. One way to build such knowledge is to predict the future state of the channel from past measurements. This paper presents two MIMO channel predictors, derived from existing SISO ESPRIT-based techniques. With a sampling rate of 4 samples per wavelength, 17 channel observations are sufficient to produce predictions over a few wavelengths in the case of a 4 x 4 MIMO system operating in a microcell environment. These predictors are quite simple and have limited computational needs.
