Hot Spot technology demonstrations will include ATSC ACAP Standard application development tools and CE solutions, A-VSB for indoor and mobile reception, ATSC receiver software and development tools, distributed transmission test generator and analyzer, an advanced DTV multicasting service, D-ENG return channel capabilities, ATSC Software Data Download Standard and broadcast monitor, and home networking. Companies demonstrating these technologies in the DTV Hot Spot include AMD, BitRouter, ETRI, HANA, Harmonic/KBS, Microwave Radio Communications, Samsung, Unisoft, UpdateLogic, and Zenith/LG.
Also featured this year is a special demonstration of the ACAP Field Trial Project and its participating organizations, and an NAB/MSTV demonstration of high performance, easy-to-use DTV converter boxes for consumers.
"The Hot Spot will highlight the ongoing evolution of technologies and products based on ATSC standards," said ATSC President Mark Richer.
