The 2020 NAB Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology (BEIT) Conference covered many topics, but none more comprehensively than ATSC 3.0, or Next Generation TV. Of course, the physical conference did not take place as planned for April in Las Vegas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but BEIT Express, an online virtual version of the conference, launched on May 13, 2020, and most of the Next Gen TV-related papers planned for the original conference were included in some form on the BEIT Express program.
Some papers were presented as short videos of 15 minutes or less, while others were provided as slide decks and many were made available in both forms. These resources remain available on demand through August 2020. To access these presentations, you will need to complete a free NAB Show Express registration.
In addition, the Proceedings of the 2020 BEIT Conference were published online for the first time in 2020, and many of the Next Gen TV papers prepared for the BEIT Conference are included there in the form of written papers. These written versions contain the most detailed and definitive information on the subjects presented. The Proceedings are available for purchase as a complete set of 66 papers on a variety of topics, or any paper in the set can be purchased individually. The full list of available papers is presented in the Proceedings table of contents.
To summarize the Next Gen TV resources available from the 2020 BEIT Conference, the following table references all the ATSC 3.0-related papers by title with links to the forms in which each paper’s content is available.
