"BroadcastAsia brings together key stakeholders in the Asian television and broadcast markets, putting forth the perfect stage to discuss future standards such as ATSC 3.0 and technologies related to digital terrestrial television," said Chernock. "At the conference I am eager to discuss the current status of both, as well as what is in store for the future."
Chernock's presentation on ATSC 3.0 will examine the current development timeline of the news standard while highlighting its various capabilities and benefits offered to broadcasters. The presentation will discuss major improvements in video encoding efficiency; increased configurability, scalability, and interoperability; as well as the possibility to deliver 4K broadcasts to mobile devices.

Moderated by Amal Punchihewa, technical director at the ABU, the session will explore the current stage of existing DTT technologies, the enhancements and development plans for each, how DTT technology developments are expected to affect transport stream vs. IP delivery, and insights into future DTT technologies.
