ATSC 3.0

NAB Asks FCC To OK Next-Gen Broadcasting

The trade group along with noncommercial broadcasters and the consumer electronics industry ask the FCC to authorize use of the ATSC 3.0 standard that they say will enable stations to broadcast 4K, reach smartphones and other mobile devices and offer new IP-based services. ATSC 3.0 is “the bedrock for continuing innovation by the television industry for decades to come,” they say.
