The third ATSC 3.0 Physical Layer “Plug Fest,” held in Jeju, South Korea last month yielded solid results, according to Plug Fest Co-Chair Lachlan Michael of Sony.
Five modulators and four demodulators completed more than 350 tests, including completely new tests not done before in Plug Fests#1 or #2, “providing us with a strong vote of confidence in the A/322 standard,” said Michael, who also chairs S32-2, the ATSC Ad Hoc Group on Modulation and Coding.
Advanced features tested for the first time included M-PLP operation (VV4xx) using the Hybrid Time Interleaver, including more LDM configurations. The configurations from the Lab Performance Test Plan (VV6xx) were also tested for the first time.
“The Plug Fest was not without drama, but all equipment worked to the satisfaction of the participants, and there were many smiles as everybody’s equipment was packed up,” said Michael. The ATSC thanks our hosts and sponsors: ETRI, Jeju Techopark, CleverLogic and Samsung.
