Long-time ATSC sponsor LG Electronics is a $50-billion global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances, employing 77,000 people working in 125 locations around the world. Zenith (LG’s U.S. R&D subsidiary since 1999) was a founding ATSC member three decades ago. Zenith invented the transmission system at the heart of the ATSC 1.0 (A/53) Digital Television Standard, approved by the FCC in 1996. Zenith also co-developed the transmission system behind the ATSC A/153 Mobile Digital TV Standard, adopted by the industry in 2009. Today, LG and Zenith are active participants in the ATSC 3.0 development process. Core technologies developed by LG and Zenith, along with partner GatesAir, are included in the majority of the newly adopted A/322 Physical Layer Standard for ATSC 3.0. LG and Zenith also are key players behind other aspects of ATSC 3.0, including the ROUTE/DASH transport system designed for hybrid broadcast/broadband service features and non-real time datacasting, as well as the first implementation of ATSC 3.0 advanced emergency alerting known as AWARN, the Advanced Warning and Response Network.
