Triveni Digital will lend its ATSC 3.0 technology prowess to a webinar session at the TVOT LIVE! virtual conference hosted by Interactive TV Today (ITVT) and Triveni Digital announced today that it will share insights about NextGen TV being deployed in the nation’s capital at an upcoming panel discussion on the NAB Amplify website. Ralph Bachofen, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing, will participate in “Nation’s Capital Goes NextGen: Inside the Engineering of the Howard University NextGen TV Broadcast Collaborative” exploring the launch of WHUT as the lighthouse station in Washington, D.C., a landmark achievement in the national deployment of ATSC 3.0. The panel session will be available for on-demand streaming beginning Jan. 18 at amplify.nabshow.com.
“The collaboration between Howard University and WHUT is a shining example of the innovative NextGen TV deployments currently underway in North America,” said Bachofen. “The NAB Amplify session will shed light on the unique challenges that NextGen TV presented in the nation’s capital, due to the size of the market. During the session, I’ll elaborate on solutions that are being used to simplify implementation and management of enhanced ATSC 3.0 services.”
The session will be moderated by Sam Matheny, CTO and executive vice president of the NAB, and will discuss the Howard University NextGen TV Broadcast Collaborative, a unique collaboration between a university-owned public television station and some of the largest commercial television station groups and networks in the country. During the session, Bachofen and other NextGen TV experts will examine the inner workings of the launch, the special opportunities it offers tomorrow’s engineering talent, and how it fits within the larger ATSC 3.0 rollout across the country. Howard University is using an end-to-end ATSC 3.0 solution from Triveni Digital for NextGen TV service delivery.
