Since the last issue of The Standard one new Implementation Guide has been published and an updated standard has been published.
The Conformance Implementation Team (IT-3) has developed a document that describes an emissions testing process for ATSC 3.0 broadcasts. “Implementation Guide: Emissions Testing Process,” is now posted on the ATSC web site (https://www.atsc.org/atsc-documents/type/3-0-implementation-team-reports/). The testing program described in the document includes two parts. First, a test checklist is provided to help ensure that the emission is functional and to assist in identifying any issues, and second the document describes a methodology for quickly responding to interoperability issues with receivers.
The emissions checklist is intended as a tool to assist in launching a new station or deploying a new configuration. It is not intended for ensuring regulatory compliance or as an emissions conformance program, nor is it intended to require any specific feature set.
The methodology for quickly responding to interoperability issues with receivers is provided in order to help stations capture streams and provide them for analysis by various third parties. This document details points at which streams can be captured, test formats and equipment, and the stream capture and sharing processes.
An updated version of A/360, “ATSC 3.0 Security and Service Protection,” has been published as A/360:2022-05. This version includes the recently approved amendment that clarifies CDT GZIP requirements. This document and all other standards in the ATSC 3.0 suite of documents, can be downloaded at no charge from the ATSC web site (https://www.atsc.org/atsc-documents/type/3-0-standards/).
