This document describes an Emissions Testing Process for ATSC 3.0 Broadcasts. The testing program includes two parts. First, there is a test checklist to ensure that the emission is functional, and second this document describes a methodology for quickly responding to interoperability issues with receivers.
The emissions checklist is intended as a tool to assist in launching a new station or deploying a new configuration. It is not intended for ensuring regulatory compliance or as an emissions conformance program, nor is it intended to require any specific feature set.
The methodology for quickly responding to interoperability issues with receivers is provided in order to help stations to capture streams and provide them for analysis by various third parties. This section includes points at which streams can be captured, test formats and equipment, and stream capture and sharing processes.
