ATSC 3.0 is a suite of new standards and practices for the next generation of broadcast television – a system that will provide even more services to viewers, but will also require a clean break from the technologies of earlier-generation DTV systems. The system requirements include a call for a flexible and more efficient physical layer, mobility, Ultra-High Definition (UHD) images, new solutions for audio, incorporation of new user technologies such as second screen, and incorporation of broadband connectivity.
ATSC 3.0 represents a cooperative effort between all segments of the industry and many parts of the world. This presentation will provide an overview of the status of the ATSC 3.0 activity from a technical point of view as well as the anticipated time schedule.
The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) is creating standards for the next generation broadcast television system (known as ATSC 3.0). This new system offers significant advances over the current system which will allow broadcasters to offer new services to viewers. A core aspect of the system design is the capability to evolve with consumer demands and provide extensibility as technologies advance. This webinar will give an overview of the ATSC 3.0 system to give an understanding of how the new system will work and what kinds of new services that broadcasters will be enabled.
