The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) has announced that Dr. Richard Chernock, chief science officer at Triveni Digital and an IEEE BTS Distinguished Lecturer, is the 2016 recipient of the Television Engineering Achievement Award from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).

Chernock will receive his award at the annual NAB Technology Luncheon on April 20 during the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas.

Chernock serves as chairman of the Advanced Television Systems Committee Technology Group on ATSC 3.0. He has published papers and made a number of presentations on the new standard at conferences. He also previously oversaw the development of enhancements to DTV standards, including ATSC Mobile and ATSC 2.0. As chief science officer at Triveni Digital, Chernock develops strategic directions for monitoring, content distribution, and metadata management for emerging digital television systems and infrastructures. Prior to joining Triveni Digital, he was a research staff member at IBM Research, investigating digital broadcast technologies.

In addition to his involvement in IEEE BTS, Chernock is active on many ATSC, Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), and Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers committees, particularly in the areas of mobile digital TV, monitoring, metadata, and data broadcast. He holds a doctorate in nuclear materials engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"We congratulate Richard, as one of our own, for this tremendous and well-deserved honor," William T. Hayes, president of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society and director of engineering and technology, Iowa Public Television, said.

"As a leader in our Distinguished Lecturer Program, he is highly respected among the IEEE BTS membership. And, in his role as chair of the ATSC TG3, he is helping to drive new digital TV standards that will ensure that television is a more personalized, engaging, and multiscreen experience."
