Field tests of ATSC 3.0 signals are taking place in Cleveland, USA, over the summer. An experimental broadcast licence has been granted to Tribune Broadcasting’s WJW-TV by the FCC. WJW-TV will provide a transmitter, tower and 6MHz channel for the tests, which began in May, by LG, Zenith’s R&D lab and GatesAir.
So far, the results have shown how ATSC 3.0 will be able to deliver UltraHD content and two mobile TV streams in a single 6MHz channel. The results have been labelled as ‘encouraging’, especially for mobile TV.
