Nominations and
Broadcast Test & Measurement solutions for ATSC 3.0

by Eddy Vanderkerken of Sourcerer

NextGenTV is upon us, and ATSC 3.0 transmitters using OFDM are steadily being introduced next to the existing 8VSB systems in ATSC 1.0. So once more, just as when the existing analog Test & Measurement instruments became largely obsolete with the advent of digital TV, most TV stations are not equipped to deal with the new ATSC 3.0 signal.

Therefore we will look into the newest Test & Measurement instrumentation that has come to the US market for different purposes: field testing, portable analyzers, 24/7 compliance monitoring or for installation and commissioning. We will discover the silver lining in the necessity to invest yet again in new Test & Measurement equipment.

This meeting will be virtual
Meeting space details will be released via the
Chapter email group in the days preceding the meeting

Visitors and guests are welcome!
