━ ATSC 3.0

ATSC 3.0 Backgrounder

● ATSC 3.0 is the world’s first Internet Protocol (IP)-based broadcast standard. Now that television is an application that rides on any capable IP data network, broadcasters are abandoning proprietary systems and building application-agnostic IP native facilities. With ATSC 3.0, any kind of data files or streams that can be delivered on the Internet can be broadcast as seamlessly and ubiquitously as television programming.

● Because the broadcasts are IP native, any data transmitted by an ATSC 3.0 television station can be seamlessly integrated with services provided by or data transmitted over any other IP network. IP broadcasting can be integrated with other IP services, and vice versa, to create new capabilities and services that might otherwise might not be practical or possible.
