diagram-one-media-logoweb[1]The Advanced Television Systems Committee’s Technology Group has approved a key portion of the next-generation broadcast transmission standard, which broadcasters want the FCC to figure into their post incentive auction calculations.

“This is a significant milestone in the adoption of a revolutionary advancement in broadcast technology,” stated Mark Aitken, VP for advanced technology with Sinclair Broadcast Group, a partner in ONE Media, which is helping develop the standard and announced the vote. “By voting to send all aspects of the Physical Layer to Candidate Standard, the ATSC has validated our long-held vision of an IP-based, robust, mobile, dynamic and adaptable transmission standard, allowing us to thrive in the vast ocean of the Internet. We congratulate the ATSC for remarkably quick progress in moving us forward,” he said.
