4K ATSC collaboration GatesAir LG UHD Zenith

This week in Cleveland, expert viewers visited a number of locations, witnessing how the more robust TV system will attract mobile viewers, connect viewers with Internet content, reach those in difficult reception locations, and delight owners of future 4K Ultra High-Definition TV (UHDTV) sets with pristine 4K content delivered over-the-air using the new ATSC 3.0 standard.

The system being tested in Cleveland – dubbed “Futurecast” by proponents GatesAir, LG and Zenith – is a leading contributor to the effort to develop a next-generation ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard, which is being standardised by the Advanced Television Systems Committee.
