TeamCast, the global market leader in advanced solutions for Digital Terrestrial and Satellite Transmission, supports ONE Media and Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (referenced as SBG) ATSC 3.0 demonstration during NAB Show 2017 exhibition.
This year at NAB, ONE Media/SBG will be demonstrating a complete end-to-end system architecture to illustrate some new capabilities of the Next Generation of Terrestrial Broadcasting Standard based on ATSC 3.0 in a suite at the Wynn.
The demo set-up will consist on a real transmission of IP based contents over ATSC 3.0 physical layer and will use different pieces of equipment connected together, including two TeamCast stand-alone ATSC 3.0 DTV exciters.
This demo comes at a perfect time when many US broadcasters are assigned new channels as required by the repacking process associated with the US incentive auction and are expressing a growing interest in the ATSC 3.0 system.
“We are proud to support ONE Media and SBG for their ATSC 3.0 live demo during NAB Show. This strengthens the active collaboration our companies initiated in 2015 at the very beginning of the ATSC 3.0 standard definition and constantly developed during the emergence of this new technology” says Eric PINSON, Sales Director at TeamCast.
“With ATSC 3.0, we enter into a new era of Terrestrial Broadcast where linear TV gives the floor to more open and diversified IP based multimedia services. This revolution also concerns the DTV exciter and we had to revise our traditional way of designing a DTV exciter toward a more future proof, powerful and IP centric modulator design. The ONE Media/SBG demonstration is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our stand-alone and real-time ATSC 3.0 DTV exciter in operation” adds Eric.
