The board of directors of the Advanced Television Systems Committee has named John Henderson to be the next chairman of the technology and standards group. He replaces William Miller of ABC, whose term as TSG chairman expires at the end of the year.

Henderson has been an active participant in ATSC for many years, contributing to its technology and standards group, the planning committee and the board’s strategic planning and membership subcommittees. His immersion in consumer electronics product development and technology application began after college, when he joined RCA Laboratories. He continued with RCA Labs and its successor, Sarnoff, until 1991, when he joined Hitachi America R&D.

As an individual contributor, team member, or manager with RCA and Sarnoff, he has contributed to television tuner control systems, IF filter design, video, and to systems brought by Sarnoff to the ACATS process. At Hitachi, he managed digital TV, cable modem, and wireless modem product design. Henderson is currently a representative of the CEA in ATSC activities.

“John will be taking the reins of our key technology group at an exciting time in the twenty five year history of our organization,” said ATSC President Mark Richer. “As we develop the next generation of DTV Standards, we are fortunate to have a technology and standards chair with John’s engineering experience and leadership skills.”

Henderson holds more than 25 issued U.S. patents, and has presented numerous papers in these areas. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, and is also a past recipient of the ATSC Bernard J. Lechner Award.
