5G Broadcasting will be the focus of the first session chaired by Peter Siebert, Broadcast Industry Advisor; Will 5G be the future of DTT broadcast? What role will 5G play? Will 5G replace or complement DVB or ATSC Broadcast?

Madeleine Noland, President of ATSC will chair the second session which will review ATSC 3.0 Implementation and Roll Out; What is the ATSC 3.0 rollout status? Who will deliver the devices? How will NextGen TV features entice the end user? Is spectrum re-pack an opportunity or an obstacle to ATSC 3.0 rollout?


To conclude the event, the third session chaired by Guy Bouchard, Director of Transmission Systems at Tele-Quebec will focus on Broadcast Disaster Preparedness; Lessons learned during the pandemic?  Were broadcasters ready? Radio broadcast, the ultimate solution for emergencies? Can there be a truly disaster resilient infrastructure?

Similar to the IEEE Broadcast Symposium and our other industry offering, this virtual event will continue to provide attendees the opportunity to earn multiple Continuing Education Credits or Professional Development Hours.
