New ATSC standard for 2012
The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has announced plans to complete a new DTT standard within the next year.
It is planned that this new standard will make it possible for the transmission of 3D content and 2D HDTV content from a single multiplex, something which is already possible with the DVB-T and the more advanced DVB-T2 terrestrial digital standards, both of which are already used in many parts of the world.
Both fixed and mobile receivers will be targeted.
Work has already been underway for the past year.
