FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Progress on A/105 Underscores Momentum Behind ATSC 2.0

WASHINGTON, D.C. - December 2, 2013 – The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has elevated the A/105 "Interactive Services" system to Candidate Standard. A key element of the emerging ATSC 2.0 standard, A/105 is designed to enable the marriage of Internet-delivered and broadcast content. "Candidate Standard" status is a major step toward becoming a "Proposed Standard," and then on to consideration as a full-fledged ATSC Standard.

"Viewers are consuming television content on a variety of devices -- whenever, wherever and however they want it," said ATSC President Mark Richer. "Consumer demand for video has resulted in an increasing number of paths to deliver content to viewers. The ATSC 2.0 Interactive Services system allows the broadcaster to connect broadcast programming with additional services related to that programming."
