Liam Power, systems engineer at ONE Media, LLC, won the NAB Best Paper Award at the 2023 NAB Show for his paper “Audio Services Over ATSC 3.0: A Proof of Concept.” The award was presented at the Opening Session of the NAB Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology (BEIT) Conference on Saturday, April 15. Liam will present his paper at the Innovations in Radio BEIT Conference session on Sunday April 16 at 12:10 p.m. in Room W216-W218.
The Abstract from the paper is copied below:
“This paper provides a proof-of-concept for delivering audio services using ATSC 3.0. It outlines the initial starting requirements for the development of the system. It then covers the determinations made at each step of the process to fulfill these goals: encoding, delivery layer, physical layer, and receiver. Real world results of the tests conducted in the lab and in the Baltimore, Maryland market are then discussed. Finally, next steps in development, as well as potential gaps in the standard to fill are suggested.”
