1:00 pm - ENENSYS ATSC3.0 Presentation 

ATSC3.0 overview - advantages for Broadcaster and End User, and what are the key technology elements

The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has finalized the ATSC 3.0 television standard - the world's first IP-based broadcast service. Beyond the headlines, ATSC 3.0 has hidden and interesting capabilities that will realize new and incremental profits for the Broadcaster community. Deep signal reception, potential increased coverage, multiple device capabilities, regionalization, and broadcast and broadband convergence. This presentation will use ENENSYS' global DTT expertise to explain the technologies embedded inside ATSC 3.0. Such as flexible modulation, Multi PLP, pure IP, Dash & data files delivery. It will explain how these capabilities will help Broadcasters define new services and business models and how they will provide useful tools to enrich linear TV content.

The presentation will associate the technology with potential use cases: 

*       OFDM is flexible and is Single Frequency Network (SFN) capable, offering the possibility to increase coverage and indoor penetration. 

*       Multi-PLP allows splitting an ATSC 3.0 channel into virtual subcarriers. 

*       IP and DASH based content delivery is the perfect choice for broadcast and broadband convergence allowing broadcasters to enrich their linear TV with additional content over broadband"
