TV makers are jumping aboard the ATSC 3.0 bandwagon. The Consumer Electronics Association’s “R4.0” Video Systems standards development committee has formed a new working group, known as R4WG18, “Receivers for Next Generation Broadcast Television.”
Co-chaired by Martin Freeman of Samsung and Peter Shintani of Sony, the new CEA working group’s charter is to develop standards, recommended practices and technical reports on receiver guidelines, profiles and characteristics in support of the ATSC 3.0 emission standard.
A fast-track liaison process has been established between ATSC and CEA for the two-way exchange of important information between the two standards development organizations. The focal points for this liaison will be CEA technology advisor Paul Thomsen and Triveni Digital’s Rich Chernock, Chairman of ATSC’s TG3 Technology Group.
Preliminary work has been under way since late last year on an interim basis with the approval of the CEA R4 Chair (and former ATSC Board Chairman) Wayne Luplow of Zenith/LG. The R4 Committee officially launched the Working Group and approved its charter in January.
These CEA and ATSC standards activities are both open to all organizations that have bona fide interest in the development of next-generation broadcast television.
