The ATSC is nearing completion of its investigation into enhancements to the current 8-VSB standard for digital television transmission. In anticipation of an enhanced standard being adopted later this year, this tutorial will serve as a primer on the new transmission technologies and will review the expected performance improvements, based on results of laboratory and field testing.

Topics will include: background on 8-VSB modulation; overview of enhancements considered; details of the selected technologies; backward-compatibility, laboratory, and field testing results; robust-mode transport-stream issues; and status of the ATSC process. The presenters will be technical experts from the system developers, testing organizations, and ATSC specialist groups.
