ATSC 3.0 is Live in Tallahassee

  • Reading time:1 mins read

NextGen TV is expanding again, with one Gray Television-owned
station launching with the new transmission standard in Tallahassee, Florida. WNXG
launched on December 2.

WNXG simulcasts five programming services on its ATSC 1.0
stations WCTV and WFXU – CBS, Me/My, Circle, Ion and Justice. Gray says that the
ability to stream the four HD and one SD channels had exceeded the capability
of ATSC 1.0.

“We constructed this low power station with the NextGen TV
transmission standard using off-the-shelf components and our own internal
engineering and IT professionals in order to gain valuable first-hand knowledge
about this exciting new technology,” explained Gray’s Chief Technology Officer
David Burke.  “Over the coming months, we will be putting WNXG through
numerous experiments to test the capabilities and versatility of the NextGen TV
standard to further understand how we might implement better services for our
local viewers and advertisers.”

Gray plans to transition more stations to the NextGen TV
standard in 2021.
