Live ATSC 3.0 Transmissions, Consumer-Friendly Features of New Standard Highlighted in Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall Exhibits
WASHINGTON, April 7, 2016 – Viewers, broadcasters and manufacturers all will benefit from ATSC 3.0, the new television standard developed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) . The ATSC 3.0 Consumer Experience and the Broadcast Pavilion – two large new exhibits at the fast-approaching 2016 NAB Show (Las Vegas, April 18-21) – will showcase a range of products and technologies that highlight the many new benefits and capabilities of the flexible standard and how it will respond to different demands. The ATSC 3.0 standard specifies an entire next-generation broadcasting system, from the RF transmission through presentation to the viewer or listener and all the necessary items between the camera and the consumer.
“NAB Show marks a watershed moment for next-generation broadcasting with the lion’s share of the ATSC 3.0 standard nearing completion. In collaboration with the Consumer Technology Association, NAB, Pearl TV and others, we look forward to showing how consumers will benefit from the new over-the-air transmission system and how broadcasters can take advantage of the many benefits of the flexible and adaptable ATSC 3.0 standard,” said ATSC President Mark Richer. “Nearly 30 companies are coming to the 2016 NAB Show to show off various facets of ATSC 3.0, and attendees will find two major displays showcasing the capabilities of the emerging standard.”
