Many thanks to all of you who made the 2022 Annual Member Meeting and NextGen Broadcast Conference a big success, from the event planning team to the sponsors, the exhibitors, and attendees both in person and on livestream. We were delighted to be in the Motor City highlighting new opportunities and developments in the automotive industry and more – all powered by ATSC 3.0 and NextGen TV. Feedback from the robust attendance has been very positive, with the strong programming and abundant, well-organized networking opportunities taking center stage. It came as no surprise that The Henry Ford Museum event garnered high praise – truly an engineer’s paradise!
Among the major announcements at the Conference was that Korean company MOBIS has developed an ATSC3.0 receiver for vehicles, has completed testing in vehicles, and anticipates the first automobile model equipped with ATSC 3.0 to be available in the U.S. market in 2023.
We’d like to once again congratulate Dr. Youngkwon Lim, winner of the 2022 Bernard J. Lechner Outstanding Contributor Award for his exemplary work in the standards committees, and SONY, this year’s Mark Richer Industry Leadership Medalist for incorporating NextGen TV in their complete television model line-up.
The entire Annual Member Meeting and NextGen Broadcast Conference content is still available on demand on the ATSC website – but only for a few more days. Be sure to catch anything you missed before July 15th.
After the success of the NextGen Broadcast Conference, ATSC now turns its attention to next week’s Jamaica Bootcamp and Seminar, produced in concert with Broadcasting Commission Jamaica and Spectrum Management Authority of Jamaica. The event will bring a “brain trust” of technical experts and experienced implementers to Jamaica to share knowledge and experiences, as Jamaica continues its Digital Switchover project – the first-ever nation to transition from analog to ATSC 3.0. Each nation launching or exploring ATSC 3.0 brings its own unique use cases and challenges, and we anticipate a robust two-way exchange of information and insights.
As the U.S. ATSC 3.0 rollout steadily moves forward with Fresno and Shreveport launching, ATSC standards activities continue apace. Be sure to visit the new Standards Update column in each edition of THE STANDARD to stay abreast of all the new developments.
Before we know it, autumn will be here, and ATSC is already looking ahead to staging a booth at NAB Show NY and the 2023 CES and NAB Shows.
As we move from “Full Steam Ahead” to “Broadcasting the Future,” mark your calendars – the 2023 ATSC NextGen Broadcast Conference will return to Washington, D.C. on June 6-8 to celebrate ATSC’s 40th Anniversary!
So we’re embarking on a busy summer, fall, and spring and will go “full circle” to next year’s conference soon!
