Triveni Digital CSO Richard Chernock
to Present on ATSC 2.0 at CCBE Conference
PRINCETON, N.J. - August 20, 2013
Triveni Digital today announced that Richard Chernock, the company’s Chief Science Officer (CSO), will deliver a technical presentation at the 2013 Central Canada Broadcast Engineers (CCBE) Conference in Ontario. The presentation, titled “ATSC 2.0: What Is It and How Will it Benefit the Broadcaster?” will take place on September 27 from 4:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. at the Horseshoe Resort in Barrie, Ontario.
“Today’s viewers demand an increasingly personalized and compelling television experience that includes a mix of traditional broadcast and Internet content,” said Chernock. “ATSC 2.0 helps broadcasters stay connected with viewers by providing them with the tools necessary to deliver media and interactive hybrid television content. My presentation will explain the benefits of relying on the ATSC 2.0 standard in delivering next-generation hybrid television services.”
Chernock’s session at CCBE will explore the inner workings of the ATSC 2.0 standard, including its ability to create connections between live TV and Internet content, as well as between live TV and non real-time content, through triggers and objects in the broadcast stream. The presentation will also outline the many benefits that ATSC 2.0 brings to broadcasters and provide insight into how the standard relates to similar hybrid TV activities around the world.
As the CSO of Triveni Digital, Chernock is responsible for developing strategic directions for monitoring, content distribution, and metadata management for emerging digital television systems and infrastructures. Previously, he was a research staff member at IBM Research, investigating digital broadcast technologies. Chernock has held many leadership positions within the ATSC, SCTE, and SMPTE standards committees, contributing to the creation of standards and recommended practices for DTV, metadata, and monitoring. He currently serves as chair of the ATSC Technology and Standards Group (TG1) and chair of the Non-Real-Time Services activity within ATSC. Chernock is the founder and chairman of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society Distinguished Lecturer Program.
Both StreamScope units feature advanced loudness monitoring functionalities that allow users to monitor and analyze audio loudness according to the most recent ITU-R Recommendation BS.1770-3. This dramatically simplifies broadcasters’ ability to log and export accurate dialnorm and LKFS/LUFS loudness measurements of broadcasts continuously and in real time in order to comply with loudness monitoring legislation, such as the U.S. CALM Act. Engineers can easily perform 24-hour spot checks of the audio stream to determine whether audio discrepancies occurred during short- or long-form programming and resolve future audio loudness issues.
