ATSC 3.0 - Building Media Networks for Next Gen TV
(Paper available in the Proceedings of the 2020 BEIT Conference)
Successful delivery of Next Gen TV using ATSC 3 and preserving the Traditional ATSC 1 requires cooperation between broadcasters to deliver a user experience that meets and exceeds today’s online content streaming but maintains compliance with the FCC obligations.
To build this out quickly this will require a flexible network strategy using Public and Private Network topologies that address the challenges of hardening of the required Synchronous SFN against malicious attacks both internal and external to guarantee the delivery of Emergency Alerts to the public during the time of Crisis. We will review different strategies in use today for Public and Private Networks used for South Korea ATSC 3, ATSC 1, DAB, DVB and ISDB-T systems.
- Effective cost control of building a Regional Media Network between broadcasters, leveraging both public and private networks for live media delivery.
- How to simplify the legal issues of connectivity, SLA and Retrans Agreements through a Software Defined Network (SDN).
- Examples of recent outside attacks on terrestrial networks, with lessons learned from building out of the SFN and realistic ways to address the vulnerabilities.
This session will be rebroadcast on the BEIT Express channel on May 13, 2020 at 10 p.m. and May 14, 2020 at 6 a.m. EDT (UTC -4).
