Planning Team 6 – Global Recognition of ATSC 3.0

Alan Stein, InterDigital, Chair
Louis Libin, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Vice Chair

Scope: ATSC 3.0 was conceived as an international broadcast standard that can be easily adopted by many countries/regions and designed to easily converge with international data transmission systems such as the Internet and 4G/5G. PT-6 will consider and recommend specific action items for encouraging global recognition of ATSC 3.0 as a leading international DTT standard. Recommended action items may include strategic communications with international standards development organizations, new work item proposals for technical enhancements to the ATSC 3.0 standard that support global use cases, strategic presence at international tradeshows/conferences, and other action items as determined by the group. PT-6 will define resource requirement estimates for its recommendations. The group will consider how to best utilize resources of ATSC and its members, and how to best leverage other organizations’ expertise. PT-6 is encouraged to adopt an initial work item of providing strategic guidance that can inform ATSC’s international activities for 2020-2021. PT-6 reports to the ATSC Board of Directors and is open to ATSC members.
