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
