RBR+TVBR readers recently learned that LTN Global’s video transport network services were being used for the first commercial deployment of ATSC 3.0 in the U.S., in Las Vegas.
What is the significance of this, and what does this represent to the TV broadcaster?
“It’s very significant,” Chief Technology Officer and head of strategy Alan Young says in this fresh RBR+TVBR InFOCUS podcast. “The rollout of ATSC 3.0 is a major step forward for the broadcasters. The challenge with it is that the FCC did not allocate any new spectrum. Because the NEXTGEN TV standard is not compatible with the existing standard, that presents somewhat of a challenge.”
As LTN Global has taken an active role in market deployments of NEXTGEN TV, this podcast is one every broadcast TV executive will want to listen to today.
