With deployments of ATSC 3.0-enabled NEXTGEN TV host stations ramping up, the technical team behind the award-winning Phoenix Model Market project is offering a series of seven free webinars every other Wednesday throughout this summer to television broadcasters. The course series begins this Wednesday, June 3 at 1:00PM EDT and continues every other week at the same time through August. Registration in advance is required, although the sessions are being presented for free. Each session lasts one hour.
“This series of webinars will provide instruction to help guide station and technology management personnel in converting local markets to NEXTGEN TV. We are asking participants to please read the Host Station Manual in advance, which was just updated and is in its seventh edition. The courses are intended for station engineers and TV technology managers who wish to obtain a better understanding of the ATSC 3.0 standard that powers NEXTGEN TV. Participants will be guided in the knowledge of what it takes to create and share services on a NEXTGEN TV Host Station,” explains Pearl TV engineer and chief instructor Dave Folsom.
The Wednesday webinars will provide a basic explanation of content and security protection, broadcaster application and framework, service profiles, and equipment requirements.
