As a leading provider of products for program guide and metadata management, data broadcasting, and service quality assurance to broadcasters, 2017 ATSC sponsor Triveni Digital stays at the forefront of evolving technologies and industry standards. The company has devoted significant resources to the development of the next-generation broadcast ecosystem, including the ATSC 3.0 suite of standards. Triveni Digital’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Richard Chernock, chairs the TG3 Technology Group defining and documenting ATSC 3.0, and other technical staff members are active participants in TG3 committees. In addition, Triveni Digital is building on its tradition of support for strategically important broadcast initiatives, such as advanced emergency alerting, by partnering with other industry players.
A key focus for the company’s development effort is a platform that provides unified support for the multiplicity of emerging new broadcast service concepts, in order to more fully exploit the power of combined broadcast and broadband content delivery. The unifying theme of these services is the management and delivery of data elements that power broadcaster service extensions, such as addressability (which enables targeted ads), interactivity, and cost-effective non-real time content delivery. Help celebrate employee-owned Triveni Digital’s 20th Anniversary by working with us on next generation TV deployment!
