Richard Lhermitte says he is excited about how ATSC 3.0 converges content from any source. And that excitement stems from years of work on the standard.
The CTO of ENENSYS has been involved in the standardization of NEXGEN TV since ATSC started to study the air interface. With a background in content delivery, Lhermitte has been heavily involved in ATSC 3.0 signaling, delivery and broadcast gateways.
“A broadcaster will offer a complete universe for the viewer, with an easy way to access and link all the video related to the broadcaster universe,” he said.
Lhermitte earned his computer science engineering degree in France and has expertise in Digital TV and Multimedia delivery over IP.
He started his career in digital TV in 1994 at Matra Communications and later joined Thales Broadcast & Multimedia working in the Test & Measurement Department. Following the acquisition of Thales Broadcast and Multimedia by Thomson, Lhermitte was in charge of the main MobileTV and IPTV deployment for Thomson.
He joined ENENSYS in 2007 as Vice President of System and Solutions before being promoted to CTO. At ENENSYS, he is heavily involved in the creation of several patented solutions, the development and deployment of complex DVB-T2 and ATSC3.0 solutions, participates in ATSC technology groups and is in charge of the ATSC3.0 system solutions for ENENSYS.
He has spent the past two years in Washington D.C. opening the ENENSYS US office to strengthen relationship with local partners and customers.
“On the technical side, I’m very pleased to have contributed on the Multi-PLP technology and its uses cases. I was also very pleased to be able to make a lot of ATSC3.0 presentations and technical training sessions during many different conferences and events.”
Lhermitte and his family live in Rennes, France but they are no strangers to exploring the globe. They have been to Turkey, Australia, Morocco, Mexico, and cities including Barcelona, London, and Prague.
“Our two years in the United States gave us the great opportunity to visit many beautiful states and regions – we used most of our vacation time to travel on American soil,” he said. “As culture provides great entertainment, we also enjoy going to the cinema, theatre and museum – how nice it was to live close to Washington.”
