ATSC IS THE PLACE.
The 2013 ATSC Annual Meeting is right around the corner. The theme, “ATSC is the Place,” epitomizes what we’re all about – the place for collaboration and cooperation, for vision and innovation, for fun and fellowship.
When ATSC members and guests gather on May 9 to celebrate our 30th anniversary, it’s fitting that we’re meeting in a building that bears the name of the President of the United States when the ATSC was founded, the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, located on historic Pennsylvania Avenue in the heart of the Nation’s Capital.
Future of Television. As proud as we are of the ATSC’s many contributions over the years, we’re focused on the future – and the 2013 ATSC Annual Meeting promises to provide attendees expert opinions, unique perspectives and valuable insights about the future of television.
Following a much-anticipated opening keynote by Bill Lake, Chief of the Media Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission, a series of expert panels will explore technology platforms and business models charting the future course of broadcast TV.
Panels will cover “Mobile DTV, Where are we? Where are we going?,” “ATSC 3.0: What do we want? When do we want it?” and “ATSC 2.0: Smart TV and Second Screens.”
Honoring Excellence. A highlight of the day will be the presentation of the 2013 Bernard J. Lechner Award, the ATSC’s highest technical honor. During the luncheon awards ceremony, ATSC President Mark Richer also is expected to hand out a rubber chicken or two to deserving individuals.
Thanks to our sponsors: Broadcast Interactive Media, the Consumer Electronics Association, Cox Media Group, Dolby Laboratories, Erickson, the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society, LG Electronics, the Public Broadcasting Service, Samsung and Vizio.
While we’re expecting a great turnout, it’s still not too late to register. Online registration is now available.
