Manufacturers Samsung, Comark and TeamCast are to jointly demonstrate what is described as “full ATSC 3.0 technology” at CES in Las Vegas. The terrestrial transmission features a live transmission of MPEG?H HEVC ultra HD video and MPEG?H 3D audio content.
The signal is being broadcast from a specially installed Comark LPTV-8000, 600 Watt UHF transmitter, situated in Black Mountain, Las Vegas.
John Godfrey, vice president of Public Policy, Samsung Electronics North America, said: “The new technology not only delivers live broadcast of Ultra HD content to the home, but also enables new user interactions, such as two?way service.”
Richard Fiore, president & CEO, Comark, added: “ATSC 3.0 provides an important step forward for US broadcasters to bring additional capabilities and services to U.S. consumers. Our participation in this live over?the?air demonstration at the CES show demonstrates our long standing commitment to DTV broadcasters in the United States”.
In October, Sinclair Broadcast Group and Technicolor have staged the first over the air test of the ATSC 3.0 standard.
