the delivery of ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV), which includes 4K
resolution, high dynamic range (HDR), and wider color gamut (WCG), as well as immersive
sound and personalized audio. ATSC 3.0 will also enable mobile delivery,
hybrid delivery over the internet, interactive apps, audience viewing data, and
advanced emergency alerts.

SMPTE Hollywood Section chair. “It will have a profound effect on the way
consumers receive and enjoy television content. ATSC 3.0 will also require
fundamental changes to the way that content is produced and delivered. Dr.
Chernock has led the process of developing ATSC 3.0 standards, and his insights will assist SMPTE members in better
understanding what to expect and how to prepare for the future.”

more than a century, the people of SMPTE (pronounced “simp-tee”) have sorted
out the details of many significant advances in media and entertainment
technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and
UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, SMPTE has received an Oscar®
and multiple Emmy® Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery
engineering across the industry. SMPTE has developed thousands of standards,
recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are
currently in force today. SMPTE Time Code™ and the ubiquitous SMPTE Color Bars™
are just two examples of SMPTE’s notable work. As it enters its second century,
SMPTE is shaping the next generation of standards and providing education for
the industry to ensure interoperability as the industry evolves further into
IT- and IP-based workflows.
global membership today includes more than 7,000 members: motion-imaging
executives, creatives, technologists, researchers, and students who volunteer
their time and expertise to SMPTE’s standards development and educational
initiatives. A partnership with the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA)
connects SMPTE and its membership with the businesses and individuals who
support the creation and finishing of media content. Information on joining
