August 6 Voting Deadline Looming
A/53 and A/65 form the core of the ATSC Digital Television Standard. Major revisions of both standards are nearing the end of their final stage of balloting. Three Parts of A/53 are currently at ballots of the full ATSC Membership:
In addition, a revision of A/65, “Program and System Information Protocol for Terrestrial Broadcast and Cable,” is at Membership Ballot. The primary motivation and substance of this revision is to remove the E VSB feature. In addition, the revision addresses a variety of issues that have been identified and collected since the publication of the current version of the standard, A/65:2009.
All four ballots close on Tuesday August 6. As a reminder, all ATSC ballots close at 11:59 p.m. ET on the closing date. One vote per company. For ballots of TG1, all TG1 member companies who have voting eligibility (as defined on the current Voting Eligibility List) may vote on TG1 ballots. Ballots of the full ATSC Membership are conducted on a dedicated group on Kavi known as the Member Representatives group. This group is made up of the primary representative from each member company.
