Course description

ATSC 1.0 was the world’s first digital television terrestrial broadcast standard, which introduced HDTV, 5.1 channel surround sound and flexible channel uses for multicasting. But the broadcast standard that was once revolutionary in the mid-1990s is now becoming obsolete. It has been eclipsed by new video formats and internet video streaming to smart TVs, phones and tablets. The development of NEXTGEN TV using the new ATSC 3.0 standard once again revolutionizes broadcasting by incorporating the newest video and audio formats, using the most modern audio and video compression technology and adapting internet data protocols. As a standard for both over-the-air Broadcast and Broadband internet delivery, ATSC 3.0 is the future of broadcast television. ATSC 3.0 receivers are now available, and broadcast stations are launching across the US and South Korea.
