Towards a unique digital TV model?

In the 2016 version of the NAB Show, one of the frequent topics of conversation was the ATSC 3.0 digital television standard that is about to be published. All experts agree that it has a significant change, getting very close to what the DVB T2 is today.

Beyond the technological benefits offered by this new version of the North American digital television standard, such as the transmission to any device and images in 4K, there is also speculation about the geopolitical background that this model entails.

Some experts consulted argue that the ATSC 3.0 is the first step towards integration with the European DVB T2 model, for which they would already be in talks between the United States and the European Union in order to reach a unique model of digital television, as analog television worked.

Why? The main motivation would be economic, since the existence of four different models of digital television would be generating restrictions and cost overruns for technology manufacturers, compared to when the transmission was analog and a television could work anywhere in the world. Situation that takes greater notoriety with a globalized economy.

- Publicidad -

Although these are industry speculations that do not have any official confirmation so far, it is striking that more and more authoritative voices are talking about this hypothetical situation and considering it as a viable option. Will we have a unique model of global digital television? Only time will tell.
