LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3, 2017 – Among the many new technologies on display later this week at CES® 2017 will be the emerging ATSC 3.0 TV standard, the IP-based broadcasting innovation that will merge over-the-air and Internet-delivered content in future mobile and home devices.
“ATSC 3.0 is the next-generation broadcast platform that has the capability of delivering Ultra HD TV with HDR (High Dynamic Range), interactive features, and multi-channel immersive audio.
ATSC 3.0 will present viewers with more streams, more choices, more channels, and more flexibility. The new system can also be a pipeline for delivering data to the car, to mobile devices, and to the home,” explains Mark Richer, President of the Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is standardizing the many components of the new system.
As a curtain raiser to CES, the ATSC today released a new infographic demonstrating the progress being made to complete some 20 different ATSC 3.0 standards and recommended practices as they move from draft documents to Candidate Standards, Proposed Standards, and then finally to Approved Standards.
“ATSC 3.0 remains on track to be completed as a finished standard later this spring, with technologies moving through the standardization process as planned,” Richer said.
