Now that the FCC has approved ATSC 3.0 transmission, broadcasters need to get ahead of 5G.
New TV transmission technology and services agreement includes site audits, turnkey solutions and installation services for up to 13 stations affected by the TV spectrum repack.
Dielectric and Quincy Media Inc have reached a Repack Agreement for nine TV stations in Phases One and Two, with more stations in subsequent phases.
Two years ago proponents of ATSC 3.0 began looking for a facility to host the testing of the country’s next-generation TV broadcasting standard.

WPBT South Florida PBS has contracted Rohde & Schwarz to provide a complete turnkey solution, including a new liquid-cooled transmitter, for the station’s FCC repack transition.
Single-frequency networks boost DTV signal strength while GatesAir liquid-cooled technology reduces tropical climate cooling loads and utility costs.
