Articles You May Have Missed – August 9, 2017

As broadcasters and production staff look up to the clouds, they no longer perceive the images seen by a child; a doggie, cat, dragon or airplane. The fact is the digital cloud is a future storage, production, playout and business tool that comes in a thousand flavors. The cloud article described below will help those having to evaluate cloud solutions.

The second article provides a high-level tutorial on ATSC 3.0 transmission. The author explains an RF technology that can improve coverage by adding Multiple Input Single Output (MISO) diversity to an antenna. The result can offer an attractive path to a stronger signal.

As broadcasters and content makers increasingly rely on cloud deployments, the underlying software to create the media solutions become more important. In Part 4 of his tutorial series on media clouds, consultant Tony Orme, examines the connection between the software development teams and the broadcaster and production house customer.

The uses of Agile software enhances the cloud ethos of fast time to market and reacting quickly to customer demands. Learn how to leverage its benefits and more about cloud deployment in the article, “Cloud Broadcasting - Agile Development .”

Some broadcasters will be looking up to new technology, like this MISO antenna, to support their conversion to ATSC 3.0.

Many US TV stations are being required to change channels, locations or TPO as part of the spectrum auction. When a station’s calculations show that a significant power increase is not an option, adding Multiple Input Single Output (MISO) diversity offers an attractive path to a stronger signal.

To increase the probability that indoor, pedestrian, and mobile users will receive reliable service, the new ATSC 3.0 networks need to saturate the intended coverage area with a signal level above the required target level. ATSC 3.0 has adopted a Multiple-Input Single Output (MISO) antenna scheme to improve the overall performance in a SFN, known as Transmit Diversity Code Filter Sets (TDCFS).

Learn more about how this transmission option could improve your signal coverage in the article, “Boosting ATSC 3.0 Signal Strength Through MISO.”
