You are invited to participate in our January SBE Chapter 56 Meeting! 


ATSC 3.0 in Oklahoma City

You are invited to participate in the next SBE Chapter 56 meeting on  Wednesday, January 27th at 12:00 Noon.  The meeting will be held virtually using the Zoom Conference Application.  The discussion will be an analysis of the recent ATSC 3 launch in Oklahoma City.

Representatives with Oklahoma City Television Stations will join in a panel discussion on best practices and lessons learned on the launch of ATSC 3.0 in the Oklahoma City market.

ATSC 3.0 continues to gain steam as five TV stations from the Oklahoma City area has completed their deployments. The stations include Hearst’s KOCO-TV (ABC), Nexstar Media Group’s KFOR-TV (NBC) and KAUT-TV (IND); and KOKH-TV (Fox) and KOCB-TV (CW), owned by Sinclair.   Four of the stations —KFOR-TV, KOKH-TV, KOCB and KAUT—are charter members of BitPath’s broadcast data network, a joint venture between Sinclair and Nexstar, that uses ATSC 3.0 to provide datacasting services. 

Based on the same fundamental technology as the Internet, digital applications, and other web services, ATSC 3.0 can support a wide range of features currently in development, such as immersive audio and video (up to 4K), broadcasting to mobile devices, personalized viewing tools, and advanced emergency alerts providing rich media instead of simple text messages.

SBE members, guests and other interested industry professionals are invited to attend.

We hope you can join us!
