Atlanta DTH Launches DGI-NexGen-Solo USB-Powered Plug-in ATSC 3.0 Digital TV Receiver

Atlanta DTH, a developer of cable, satellite, terrestrial and IP media related applications, has added a USB 2.0 plug-in ultra-compact digital terrestrial television tuner for accessing locally receivable free-to-air channels to its portfolio.

Designed for connection to Android TV, Android set top boxes, along with Windows and Linux operating systems, the ADTH DGI-NexGen-Solo is ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 compatible with a form factor of 93 x 27 x12 mm.

Based on the same platform as ADTH’s established DGI 1011 SD/HD USB plug-in DTV tuner, power is obtained directly from the USB port. There is also software enabling the plug-in to turn a computer or Android device into a gateway to popular platforms such as iOS and Roku, while being compatible with third-party streaming media services such as Plex.

"The DGI-NexGen-Solo includes a wide range of features that make NextGen TV viewing easy and enjoyable, at home or while traveling," said Atlanta DTH project manager Susan Zhang. "It allows viewers to watch live TV, pause and store the program stream for up to 60 minutes, or wind back for up to five minutes. Viewers also gain full access to the electronic program guide and program information synopses normally associated with large-screen domestic TVs, plus closed captioning features for people with restricted hearing. We are confident the DGI-NexGen-Solo will help accelerate the transition from HD to 4K UHD TV viewing across the United States over coming months and years."

First deployed in South Korea for the 2019 Winter Olympics and now being introduced across the USA, ATSC 3.0 is being promoted in that country as 'NextGen TV', supporting 2160p 4K resolution, 120 frames per second frame rate, high dynamic range, wide color gamut, surround sound and datacasting.
