PRINCETON, N.J. — March 21, 2017 — Triveni Digital today announced that the company’s Vice President of sales and marketing, Ralph Bachofen, will speak about ATSC 3.0 at the 2017 PBS Technology Conference (PBS Tech Con). The speaking session, scheduled to take place on April 20 at 2:30 p.m. in room Roman 1 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, will examine the details of the signaling and announcement standards making up ATSC 3.0, with a specific focus on data structures, their interrelations, and how they are expected to be used by receivers compared with PSIP.

By the end of the tutorial, attendees will understand the benefits of deploying a unified PSIP and ATSC 3.0 metadata generator and steps for how to simplify the transition to the next-generation broadcast television system as it relates to signaling and announcements.
