The bright lights of Las Vegas may only be a memory, but the ATSC is on a roll with the terrific standards work on ATSC 2.0, the Future of Broadcast TV initiative and more.
During the just-completed 2012 NAB Show, ATSC had a great presence with numerous papers presented during the Broadcast Engineering conference, demonstrations of new technologies in the ATSC TechZone, key announcements from broadcasters about Mobile Digital TV, and a general session entirely devoted to the Future of Broadcast Television.
The momentum rolling out of Vegas continues this month with the ATSC Annual Meeting, which is next Tuesday, May 8, in Washington, D.C.
Our members are the “Champions” of ATSC, and our very strong conference agenda will provide a more intimate way for you to learn about the latest trends and plans. The event takes place at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center and there is still time to register, here.
We are excited to welcome Leonardo Chiariglione, chairman and co-founder of MPEG, to open our Annual Meeting. Wherever broadcast TV is goes in the future, there’s no question that digital video compression will continue to play a vital role.
Our Annual Meeting will be a great place to get an update on our latest efforts to enhance digital TV and to engage with industry experts in broadcasting and consumer technology.
Starting with a Monday evening cocktail reception in the Rotunda Room of the Reagan Building, speakers and panelists at the Tuesday meeting will include member broadcasters, industry analysts, journalists, representatives from CEA and NAB, and equipment manufacturers.
We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you next Monday and Tuesday. For readers of The Standard who are not yet members, you are more than welcome at the ATSC Annual Meeting, too, so you can have a first-hand look at our exciting work. Our membership is robust, but we’re always open to inviting others with an interest in the future of television to join our ranks.
