I am excited to announce that our presenter for our June meeting will be Perry Priestly.
ATSC3.0 Presentation 2017
Presenter : Perry Priestley, ANYWAVE
The purpose of this presentation is to update broadcast engineers with several current developments in ATSC3.0 technology. ATSC 3.0 will add value to broadcasting’s services such as extending reach, adding new business models. It will provide content on all devices, fixed, mobile and handheld. It has the capability to provide higher quality, audio and video such as UHDTV & Immersive Audio. One of the most important issues is the improved accessibility and coverage. It can also offer personalization and interactivity and leverage the power of broadcasting and broadband.
The presentation will cover the effects on the transmitter in terms of efficiency, power consumption. We will discuss what will be required to modify an ATSC transmitter to an ATSC3.0 system, the work needed and some general costs and consequences.
The presentation will include a live demo of ATSC3.0 exciter being monitored by a new ATSC3.0 test and monitoring system.
