Two Presentations Will Examine Emerging Technologies and Models That Enable Broadcasters to Extend Their Content Delivery Capabilities
PRINCETON, N.J. -- Oct. 7, 2010 -- Triveni Digital today announced that the company's CTO Rich Chernock will address the hot topics of mobile DTV and advanced television systems in two presentations at the IEEE Broadcast Symposium, Oct. 20-22 at the Westin Hotel in Alexandria, Va. Chernock's presentations will outline these critical and still-evolving areas of broadcasting and how they are helping broadcasters to offer content to their customers with greater flexibility and interactivity.
Scheduled on the afternoon of Oct. 20, Chernock's presentation, "ATSC Mobile DTV 201: A Technical/Practical Tutorial," will provide attendees with an advanced overview of the technology behind the ATSC Mobile DTV standard (A/153), along with a number of practical considerations for adding mobile capabilities and services to an existing DTV station. "Update on Advanced TV," scheduled for the afternoon of Oct. 22, will describe developments in a new advanced television system that overcomes obstacles to broadcasters' delivery of enhanced content. The latter presentation will touch on new means for associating enhancements with the content being viewed and allow broadcasters to provide services, no matter what path the content takes to the viewer.
"In a rapidly changing media-delivery environment and a challenging economic climate, broadcasters have a lot to gain from extending their existing assets and infrastructure to deliver enhanced and advanced broadcast services," said Chernock. "At the IEEE Broadcast Symposium, we'll discuss these services and the underlying technologies that are opening new doors for the industry."
Chernock has held many leadership roles within the Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) and the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and, as an active member of these organizations' standards committees, has participated in the creation of standards and practices for DTV, metadata, and monitoring. He chairs a number of ATSC ad hoc committees whose work relates to metadata and transport issues. Chernock is vice-chair of the Technology Standards Group (TSG) and chairs the non-real-time services and mobile/handheld management layer activities within ATSC. He is also the Distinguished Lecturer Chair for IEEE Broadcast Technology Society.
