3D-TV Standards Momentum Continues
Advancing 3D-TV standards developments, two Technology Group 1 (TG1) ballots are now underway. The ballots are:
The default open period for Technology Group ballots is four weeks. That time can be extended or shortened by direction from the Technology Group. Voting eligibility for Technology Group ballots is documented in the Voting Eligibility list, which is distributed shortly after TG meetings. Only members with voting eligibility may cast ballots at the Technology Group level. Voting eligibility rules can be found in Section 10.8 of the ATSC Bylaws, which can be found on the ATSC Web site.
TG members should periodically check their voting status on the TG1 and/or TG3 roster. The options for setting the Voting dialog box are Primary, Alternate, or Non-Voter. If you are currently set as Non-Voter, you will not be able to cast a vote. Members can change their Role and Voting settings. If you have any problems making such changes, please let Jerry Whitaker (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and so the needed adjustments may be made.
For companies with multiple members set as Primary and/or Alternate voters, you should work out internally who casts votes on ballots. If, for example, an Alternate casts a vote on a particular ballot, that vote will stand unless a Primary votes, in which case the Primary voter entry will be the one recorded.
