The ATSC 3.0 standard is the world’s first terrestrial broadcast standard to use Internet Protocol (IP) at its transport layer and this technical innovation opens up new opportunities for broadcasters to deliver data that goes well beyond the linear audio and video services that most people think of as television.
Data broadcasting, often referred to as datacasting, becomes a native application instead of a bolt-on solution with ATSC 3.0.
Join us to explore a prototype distance education application developed in conjunction with the Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science, and the opportunities it could create.
This prototype uses a home gateway receiver to store data that is delivered via the broadcast. Students then interact with a NextGen TV application to complete their coursework and submit the results via a smartphone, potentially used to reach and better educate students who do not have broadband internet access.
