WASHINGTON, January 19, 2007 – The Advanced Television Systems Committee is pleased that the country of Honduras has adopted the ATSC Digital Television Standard for digital terrestrial television broadcasting. The decision to adopt the ATSC Standard was made by the Comision Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CONATEL) on January 9, and became effective on January 16 when it was published in the Diario Oficial La Gaceta.
“We look forward to working with our colleagues in Honduras as they implement digital television,” said Mark Richer, ATSC President. “We believe the ATSC suite of standards provides extraordinary flexibility and the ability to evolve with future marketplace requirements.”
ATSC DTV standards provide a wealth of applications, including high-definition television (HDTV), multiple simultaneous programs of standard-definition television (SDTV), multi-channel surround-sound digital audio, and a multitude of data broadcasting and interactive services.
The ATSC Digital Television Standard has been adopted and deployed in Canada, Mexico, the United States and South Korea.

The ATSC member organizations represent the broadcast, broadcast equipment, motion picture, consumer electronics, computer, cable, satellite and semiconductor industries.
