“Part 2 - Encoding and Other Consideration for ATSC 3.0"

Our next meeting will be hosted by Harmonic and will cover encoding and other consideration for ATSC 3.0. Due to technical difficulties, the original presentation planned in April could not be presented. This presentation will occur during this coming meeting along with a continuation of some of the topics discussed in the last meeting.

The A in ATSC stands for advanced. When compared with the NTSC analog system, the two can be distinguished apart by the distinctive features which were state of the art technology at the time. With ATSC the movement started the shift from analog into digital TV delivery systems and included many more “advanced” features not possible before when compared with the NTSC standard. Now fast forward, as ATSC rolls out the 3.0 standards, some of the new features are getting buried in a myriad of functions and features overloaded by a litany of three letter acronyms used to describe them.

This presentation will cover the 3 core tenants of the ATSC 3.0 standard and then explore some of the advancements being made in the ATSC 3.0 standard and what they represent to our future business. I will attempt to cover the details of why each of the 3 main technologies are critical to understand the myriad of underlying elements of each for making the business decisions and planning.

Joel Wilhite, senior systems design engineer at Harmonic, has been involved with the ATSC for more than a decade. He’s been heavily involved with the broadcast community since 1995 when he started his career with DiviCom (now Harmonic) as an engineer testing code and systems for deployments. He has a vast knowledge of encoding and the broadcast industry.

All are welcome to attend.
