Right now, no TG1 ballots are open, although a re-ballot of A/105, “Interactive Services Standard,” is expected at a future date.
There are three open Membership ballots: A/104 Part 5 and Part 6 (as noted previously), and A/53 Part 5, “ATSC Digital Television Standard Part 5 – AC-3 Audio System Characteristics.” The revision of A/53 Part 5 closes on August 28. Be sure to vote!
The following documents are currently at Candidate Standard status:
Note that per the direction of TG1, Candidate Standards continue to remain posted on the CS page of the ATSC web site during ballots as Proposed Standard and then Standard.
