Verance to Present at ATSC – Broadcasting the Future – NextGen Broadcast Conference

ATSC A/334 Watermark To Power Multiple Interactive Broadcast Applications Across All Distribution Scenarios

Detroit, Michigan, June 6, 2022 – Verance’s Head of Business Development, Richard Glosser will speak about NextGen monetization at this week’s ATSC – Broadcasting the Future – NextGen Broadcast Conference in Detroit, Michigan. The 2022 ATSC Annual Member Meeting and Conference will take place from June 7 to June 9, 2022 at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel and will also be available online. Verance’s Richard Glosser is featured as part of a panel on Monetizing the ATSC 3.0 Ecosystem taking place on Wednesday, June 8th at 2 p.m. Eastern time. The panel will go in depth on ATSC 3.0 service capabilities and how these capabilities can be monetized. Rick Ducey of BIA Advisory Services will moderate and the panel will also feature Chandra Kotaru from Gaian Solutions, Shawn Makhijani from NBC Universal and Mark Aitken from Sinclair/ONE Media.

Along with the presentation, Verance will demonstrate multiple major television stations in Detroit airing their interactive broadcast applications using Verance Aspect watermark technology. Throughout the conference, attendees can visit the NextGen Video Information Systems Alliance booth to see Verance Aspect and these broadcast applications in action.

The Verance Aspect watermark provides a high-performance, commercial implementation of the ATSC A/334 audio watermark standard. The watermark detection process allows the information required for two-way next-generation services in a connected smart TV set to pass through any distribution environment seamlessly, including over HDMI links and through existing distribution equipment and set-top boxes. Without watermarking, viewers receiving television service via cable, satellite and over-the-top distribution paths (over 80% of U.S. households) will be unable to receive ATSC 3.0 interactive services.

In April 2022, Verance announced that LG is the first to launch watermark detection commercially in tandem with major broadcasters deploying the watermark across the United States, bringing enhanced ATSC 3.0 capabilities to 2022 and 2021 LG NEXTGEN TV sets.
