ATSC PRESENTATION

COALITION JOINS NAB
  • The Coalition will immediately begin to collaborate with NAB to conduct research on how best to protect LPTV and TV translators during the Incentive Auction and channel repacking process.
  • The Coalition will further seek to collaborate with NAB to research how the new ATSC 3.0 candidate standard can be developed before 2016 so that it be used as soon as possible, and hopefully during the post-auction repacking.
  • The Coalition will further seek to find common ground with NAB to develop a mechanism for obtaining relocation funding for all built TV translators and LPTV stations.

COALITION BECOMES 
GOLD SPONSOR OF LPTV DAY
  • This display of support is for the morning expert panel discussion, and afternoon workshops, as well as the Monday evening LPTV reception event.
  • The Coalition believes this will go a long way to showing that our industry is united in its fight for LPTV spectrum usage rights during the Incentive Auction and channel repacking process.
