A/300:2017, “ATSC 3.0 System”

Approved 19 October 2017

This Standard describes the ATSC 3.0 digital television system. ATSC 3.0 is a suite of voluntary technical Standards and Recommended Practices that is fundamentally different from predecessor ATSC systems and is therefore largely incompatible with them. This divergence from earlier design is intended to allow substantial improvements in performance, functionality, and efficiency sufficient to warrant implementation of a non-backwards-compatible system. With higher capacity to deliver Ultra High-Definition services, robust reception on a wide range of devices, improved efficiency, IP transport, advanced emergency alerting, personalization features, and interactive capability, the ATSC 3.0 Standard provides much more capability than previous generations of terrestrial broadcasting. This document describes the complete ATSC 3.0 Standard, which encompasses a set of individual standards documents, the interworking of which is described therein.
