Next Generation Television (ATSC 3.0) — How will this new system change television broadcasting as we know it?
April 8 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm EDT
On Thursday, April 8, 2021, the IEEE Consultants’ Network of Northern New Jersey will host a presentation on the next generation TV broadcasting system. The meeting will be held online. Please register to receive a link to the meeting.
About the Topic
Next Generation Television is a major upgrade and expansion of the existing over-the-air broadcast platform. Unlike the move to digital TV 12 years ago, adoption of Next Gen TV is voluntary. Although it is not backwards compatible with the existing digital TV standard, broadcasters have developed their own effective transition plan. The technology behind Next Gen TV will better reach viewers through a more robust signal and by delivering to hard-to-reach indoor over-the-air televisions and mobile receivers in smartphones, tablets and even the rear seats of automobiles. The features offered by Next Gen TV can provide enhanced viewer experience opportunities, including UHD, HDR, immersive audio and second screen features, and true interactivity.
