Harris puts mobile TV on the air at CES

All the cool mobile TV receivers in the world don't add up to much if there's nothing to watch. So to make sure that ATSC-M/H's debut at CES was a success, Harris was behind the scenes supporting several live ATSC Mobile DTV streams.

“Our objectives at CES are to support the broadcast industry through real-world, over-the-air ATSC Mobile DTV demonstrations and further the progress of receiver availability for consumers,” said Jay Adrick, vice president of broadcast technology for Harris. “The official adoption of the ATSC Mobile DTV Standard means that consumers can begin receiving live TV and multimedia broadcasts on a variety of wireless receiving devices as broadcasts and receivers become available.”

Two Las Vegas-market digital TV stations, Landmark Communications' CBS affiliate KLAS-DT and Sinclair Broadcast Group's MyNetworkTV affiliate KVMY-DT, provided programming. Harris integrated its MPH ATSC Mobile DTV platform with each broadcaster’s main transmitter to deliver the broadcast streams.

Harris also transmitted another eight ATSC Mobile DTV program streams of local and national content on local Channel 56. The DiSH Network, which owns Channel 56 in the Las Vegas market, volunteered its frequency for the demonstration, and Harris supplied a complete transmission system including its Maxiva UAX transmitters and MPH platform.
