Since the last issue of The Standard newsletter, one updated document has been published on the ATSC web site. The updated document is A/331:2023-10, “Signaling, Delivery, Synchronization, and Error Protection.” This updated version includes the amendment, “FDT Enhancement.” The amendment specifies updated signaling in order to enable Repair Flow operation on memory constrained platforms, and repair of large files in smaller pieces. The amendment also adds Source Block interleaving to increase time diversity of the NRT files.
Ballots of the full ATSC Membership are conducted on a dedicated group on the ATSC member workspace (Causeway) known as the Member Representatives group. This group is made up of the primary representatives from each member company.
The ATSC member workspace system sends out a notification when each ballot opens. Reminders are sent to members who have not already voted 1) one week before the ballot closes, and 2) one business day before the ballot closes. After a ballot has closed, voting details are available to members of the group. Comments submitted during the ballot period also may be viewed. Notification of a closed ballot and the results of that ballot are sent to members at the close of the ballot.
