FCC takes first step toward over-the-air 4K broadcasting

On Thursday, the [Federal Communications Commission] published a proposed regulation that would allow TV stations to begin broadcasts using the ATSC3.0 format, a newer version of the digital transmission format used today. ATSC 3.0 uses an IP data stream, so it’s much more flexible than current broadcast standards. Using the system, broadcasts can simultaneously send several video streams of varying bandwidths and additional streams of data. – Martyn Williams, TechHive http://ift.tt/2k9GAdm
