THE NEXT GENERATION OF BROADCAST TELEVISION: ATSC 3.0
At WCVB-TV, Channel 5
ATSC 3.0 is a suite of new standards and practices for the next generation of broadcast television – a system that will provide more services to viewers and new business opportunities to broadcasters, but will also require a clean break from the technologies of earlier-generation DTV systems. The system provides a flexible and more efficient physical layer, mobility, Ultra-High Definition (UHD) images, new solutions for audio, incorporation of new user technologies such as second screen, and hybrid use of broadcast and broadband delivery for services.
ATSC 3.0 represents a cooperative effort between all segments of the industry and many parts of the world. This presentation will provide a high level view of the fundamental architecture of the next generation in broadcasting, how an ATSC 3.0 TV station will be different from today’s ATSC 1.0 station and what new opportunities ATSC 3.0 will bring to broadcasters.
