NEXTGEN TV, also known as ATSC 3.0, is the next generation of digital television broadcasting technology. It offers a number of benefits over ATSC 1.0, the current standard, including:
- Improved picture quality: NEXTGEN TV can deliver Ultra HD (4K) resolution, which is four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p). It can also support HDR (high dynamic range), which provides a wider range of colors and contrast.
- Improved sound quality: NEXTGEN TV can deliver immersive surround sound, with up to 5.1 channels.
- More interactive features: NEXTGEN TV can deliver interactive features from broadcasters.
- More robust signal reception: NEXTGEN TV is more robust than ATSC 1.0, and can provide better reception in areas with poor signal quality.
Here is a table that summarizes the key differences between NEXTGEN TV and ATSC 1.0:
