ATSC to hold one-day PSIP seminar

January 7, 2005

The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) will present a one-day seminar on the PSIP, the Program and System Information Protocol, Jan. 25 during the 10th Annual Hollywood Post Alliance Technology Retreat in Palm Springs, CA.

  • PSIP fundamentals – What it is and how it works; Mark Eyer, Sony
  • Making sense out of the PSIP tables; Rich Chernock, Triveni Digital
  • The FCC rules – What’s required and when; Art Allison, NAB
  • Now that I have to do PSIP, what do I do? Chris Lennon, Harris
  • The PMCP standard - Help is on the way; Art Allison, NAB
  • Automating PSIP - A case history; Jean Macher, Thales
  • End-to-end management of PSIP; Nandhu Nandhakumar, Triveni Digital
The seminar costs $195.
