October marks the exciting culmination of many months of work with formal submission of detailed technical proposals for the Physical Layer of the next-generation ATSC 3.0 Standard. The Physical Layer development process continues this month with tutorial presentations from each respondent that has submitted a proposal. In parallel with work on the Physical Layer, the Technology Group TG3 Specialist groups are also considering the other layers of the system and the overall program management.
Complementing our efforts to develop the ATSC 3.0 standard, we continue to collaborate with our colleagues in the global Future of Broadcast Television (FoBTV) initiative to maximize the commonality of technologies in the next-generation standard.
While TG3 is working on the definition of the basic building blocks for ATSC 3.0, our Implementation Teams(ITs) are busy addressing the requirements for rollout of new systems and services:
The great work of the Implementation Teams and the high interest in ATSC 3.0 are driving more member involvement. We’re also pleased to report that new members are joining to make sure they are both aware of what’s coming and also contributing to standardization efforts. Any company interested in moving TV forward should consider joining ATSC to be part of the initiative.
Lastly, the ATSC staff and Board of Directors are now considering how best to engage with the broadcast industry at the NAB Show next April. We welcome our members’ input, feedback and suggestions about how the ATSC’s participation in this major event should be shaped and what technologies should be highlighted there.
