BALTIMORE — Did you hear the one about the guy who got more than 12 times the Kickstarter funding he requested to develop a new ATSC 3.0 device?
“I quit my ‘day job’ when ATSC 3.0 came around,” said Nick Kelsey, founder and chief technology officer of Silicon Dust, maker of networked TV tuner and DVR devices. Silicon Dust was already making products when ATSC 3.0 pivoted Kelsey’s attention. Intrigued, he turned to Kickstarter last April to raise $50,000 for a 3.0-capable device.
“The response was just incredible,” he said during a Sept. 15 webinar focused on ATSC 3.0 innovation.
