New TG 3 Specialist Groups Formed
Now that the full system requirements for ATSC 3.0 have been completed and approved within Technology Group 3 (TG3), and the ATSC awaits the responses to the Call for Proposals for the Physical Later, TG3’s focus has moved to another level. The two newer specialist groups have each begun to organize their work through the creation of new ad hoc groups and each has focused on its timelines and deliverables.
TG3/S33, the Specialist Group on Management and Protocols, chaired by Youngkwon Lim of Samsung, has created three ad hoc groups on “Service Delivery and Synchronization.” “Service Announcement and Personalization” and “Multi-screen and Interactive Services.” Each of these ad hoc groups has begun organizing their work through the creation of work scopes and beginning the exchange of draft diagrams describing possible future systems.
TG3/S34, the Specialist Group on Applications and Presentation, chaired by Rajan Mehta of NBC Universal, has created four new ad hoc groups on “Video,” “Audio,” “Presentation Logic and Service Frameworks for ATSC 3.0” and “Runtime Environment for ATSC 3.0.” Each of these ad hoc groups is also developing work scopes and other initial documents.
“Once the newer specialist groups and their ad hoc groups have made some progress, TG3/S31, the Specialist Group on System Requirements and Program Management will return to the timeline and aligning the work of all groups,” says PBS’s Jim Kutzner, who is chairing the TG3 effort.
