The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has created two teams to drive the adoption of two new US TV standards.
The teams will work on prototypes, demonstrations, interoperability testing and field trials of the standards, ATSC2.0 and Mobile Emergency Alert System (M-EAS).
ATSC president Mark Richer said: “We want to keep the ATSC standard relevant and up-to-date for broadcasters and consumer device manufacturers. The introduction of Implementation Teams for both ATSC 2.0 and M-EAS underscores our progress and will help drive next-generation technologies toward marketplace introduction.”
The ATSC is the US industry group responsible for digital TV implementation in the US.
