ARLINGTON, Va, May 21, 2010 – The Advanced Television Systems Committee, Inc. (ATSC) yesterday announced plans to explore opportunities in three important areas: terrestrial broadcast delivery of 3D TV, next-generation television broadcasting systems and Internet-connected TV technologies.
“As we continue our efforts on the development of standards for Mobile DTV, Non-Real-Time (NRT) applications and ATSC 2.0 activities, we must also lay the foundation for future technologies and standards that will enable new capabilities and services for the broadcast television industry,” said ATSC President Mark Richer.
Announced at the 2010 ATSC Annual Meeting in Pentagon City, Va., the ATSC Board of Directors has formed planning teams to consider technical feasibility and market requirements in key future technology areas:
“With the addition of these new planning teams, the ATSC and its members will be well-positioned to address longer-term strategic goals while continuing our strong focus on immediate industry requirements,” said Wayne C. Luplow, Chairman of the ATSC Board of Directors. “These teams and their talented chairs reflect the ATSC’s strong commitment to fostering the ongoing evolution of DTV technology.”
