ATSC 3 Roadshow

ATSC Banner 012519B


The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society will be hosting the ATSC 3 Roadshow at locations throughout the United States.  BTS will be hosting the one-day course on the new ATSC 3 digital television (DTV) transmission system, taught by expert Gary Sgrignoli of Meintel, Sgrignoli, and Wallace, the noted digital TV transmission consulting firm. 

This course will develop a fundamental understanding of the ATSC 3 digital transmission system's Physical Layer, provide attendees with practical application ideas and update them regarding the progress of the spectrum repack and ATSC 3 deployment.  Attending the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society's ATSC 3 Roadshow will earn attendees SBE credit towards re-certification and can facilitate preparation for the upcoming SBE ATSC 3 Specialist Certification exam.
