Presentation: Overview and Status of ATSC 3.0
Development of ATSC 3.0, the next generation terrestrial television broadcast standard, is progressing rapidly. ATSC 3.0 will add value
to broadcasting’s services, extending their reach while providing opportunities for new business models.
ATSC 3.0 incorporates a highly flexible physical layer for robust transmission of services for reception on fixed and mobile devices.
The system is highly efficient (more bits per channel) and provides broadcasters with the ability to trade-off capacity for robustness.
ATSC 3.0 is the first terrestrial broadcast standard to use Internet
Protocol transport for delivery of both streaming and file content.
The use of IP transport provides commonality with other delivery mechanisms and the new standard is being designed to allow the seamless use of broadcast combined with broadband to deliver services.
ATSC 3.0 enables delivery of new services including UHDTV and immersive and personalized audio services. In addition, ATSC 3.0 will specify carriage of video enhancements such as high dynamic range,
wide color gamut and high frame rate.
