The Society of Broadcast Engineers is teaming up with the Advanced Television Systems Committee to host a two-day tutorial on NextGen TV best practices.
Scheduled for April 14-15 in Las Vegas, the boot camp will cover material pertinent to SBE’s ATSC 3.0 Specialist Certification, which was announced in 2021. Attendees will learn how to transition their station to a NextGen broadcasting system.
“The course will cover everything from enhanced audio and video processing, content protection, propagation, modulation, datacasting, and more,” ATSC News quoted ATSC President Madeleine Noland.
The hosts will also offer the ATSC 3.0 Specialist Certification exam at the conclusion of the course. Traditionally, those who plan to sit for SBE tests must sign up in advance.
Venue details and registration deadlines have not yet been announced, but broadcast engineers planning to attend the 2023 NAB Show (scheduled for April 15-19), will want to mark their calendars.
