WATCH VIDEO. The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has standardised three more components of the next-generation television system.
The latest version of the ATSC 3.0 standard is expected to transform the ability of broadcasters to deliver mobile, interactivity and higher quality content.
ATSC members have ratified the Link Layer Protocol and Audio and Video Watermark Emission standards to be part of the ATSC 3.0 suite of 20 standards and recommended practices. At the same time, three new Proposed Standards and two new Candidate Standards are moving forward within the technical subcommittee charged with developing and documenting ATSC 3.0.
“The latest ATSC 3.0 standards will help future devices transport incoming data and provide for both audio and video watermarks in broadcast content. These are each important elements that will give ATSC 3.0 remarkable flexibility.
“The three new standards join two others (the A/322 Physical Layer and A/321 System Discovery and Signaling standards) already approved by ATSC members. Other parts of ATSC 3.0 are rapidly moving through the standardization process,” said ATSC president Mark Richer.
