Next Gen TV Summit

Next Gen Logo

Guest Speaker: Multiple - See Text

Our television industry is at a crossroads. Will broadcast cooperate with and leverage 5G technology or strike out on its own with ATSC 3.0? Or will it be some hybrid thereto? What will this mean for consumers? How will this change their viewing experience and habits? These questions and more will be addressed at the all-day Next Gen TV Summit to be held at WETA on January 16th.

We believe ATSC 3.0, now known as Next Gen TV, has the potential to transform the television viewing experience. The Next Gen TV Summit, a regional event with national backing, will be an all-day conference covering ATSC 3.0 television, along with simultaneously emerging 5G broadcast technologies and their impact on the media industry. The Summit will explore the technologies behind Next Gen TV and how it will transform the consumer experience and create new opportunities.

We’ll be looking at the ways Next Gen TV can impact consumers and deliver a richer and more engaging experience optimized for home, auto and mobile environments. With the launch of these new distribution systems, broadcast television and wireless services will become IP delivery platforms for media content with highly differentiated yet complementary capabilities. As we examine these capabilities, we’ll also look at the underlying technologies and what broadcasters need to know in order to implement them.  Finally we’ll hear from the station groups themselves about their deployments and how they expect to leverage Next Gen TV’s capabilities.  Join us as a select group of leading industry technologists and experts explore these topics and outline the roadmap for the future of television.

This event is not just for technical folks and engineers, but also for strategic leaders, new business managers, station managers, and digital sales managers. It will be light on technical aspects, which by now are ironclad or at least established and published and more about strategy and capability. Our guest speakers include:

  • Madeleine Noland - ATSC
  • Thomas Janner - Rohde & Schwarz
  • Jeff Andrew - Osborn Engineering
  • Perry Priestley - Elenos Group
  • John McCoskey - SpectraRep
  • Mark Corl - Triveni
