Video aims to show Congress what white space interference can do

The NAB and Association for Maximum Service Television are hoping that seeing is believing for Congress when it gets an eyeful of a new video designed to show lawmakers the potential interference unlicensed white space devices could cause in the TV broadcast spectrum.

On Oct. 9, the trade groups sent to Congress a video demonstrating the impact of interference from white space devices on digital TV signals if TV spectrum is not adequately protected.

The video includes a text message to Congress: "Despite what some high-tech companies might tell you, this is what you can expect if unlicensed mobile devices are allowed to operate in the TV spectrum without adequate protections. These devices can't sense when spectrum is in use — and we can't risk uncontrollable TV interference."
