ATSC President Receives 2010 NAB Engineering Achievement Award for Television
Las Vegas, NV April 15, 2010– Mark S. Richer of the Advanced Television Systems Committee has been honored by the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) as the 2010 recipient of the NAB Engineering Achievement Award. The presentation was made at the NAB Technology Luncheon on Wednesday, April 14th, during the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“It is timely for the NAB to honor Mark Richer’s long-time leadership in digital television broadcasting, particularly his forward-thinking approach to standards development,” said ATSC Board Chairman Wayne Luplow. “With the new ATSC Mobile DTV Standard now in place, broadcasters and consumers alike will continue to reap the benefits of ATSC’s groundbreaking work, as the organization embarks on other exciting new areas such as non-real-time DTV, 3D capabilities and next generation terrestrial broadcasting. On behalf of the ATSC board of directors and ATSC members, congratulations to Mark for this well-deserved recognition.”
The award, first established in 1959, is given to individuals for their significant contributions which have advanced the state of the art of broadcast engineering. In 1991, the Association began giving two awards — one for achievements in radio and the other for television.
