Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has announced the dates for an upcoming ATSC 3.0 Jamaica Bootcamp and Seminar. The event will take place July 11-14, 2022, at the Ocean Coral Spring Resort and Conference Center in Trelawny.

ATSC is collaborating with the Jamaica DSO Regulatory and Technical Committee, Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica (BCJ), and the Spectrum Management Authority (SMA), to produce the event.

“ATSC is excited that Jamaica has selected ATSC 3.0 for its transition to a digital television transmission (DTT) system and joins the growing number of countries deploying ATSC 3.0 technologies across the globe,” said Madeleine Noland, ATSC President.

“I am thrilled to be joining regulatory officials, broadcasters, and our members in bringing this educational event to Jamaica.”

The first day and a half of the event will be an in-depth technical workshop intended for station engineers who are getting ready to launch ATSC 3.0. The remaining two-and-a-half days will provide attendees with an overview of ATSC 3.0 technology and the opportunities it can facilitate for the benefit of the Jamaican people. The seminar is for a broad audience of regulators, engineers, station managers, and government authorities.

Cordel Green, executive director of the Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica and chairman of the Digital Switch Over Regulatory and Technical Committee.

“Jamaica now joins South Korea and the USA in pioneering the deployment of ATSC 3.0 (Next Generation TV), the world’s latest and most advanced television transmission standard,” said Cordel Green, executive director of the Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica and chairman of the Digital Switch Over (DSO) Regulatory and Technical Committee.

Green further remarked: “There is much work yet to be done and this Bootcamp and Seminar will help television broadcasters and other stakeholders with planning to make a success of this project. The Broadcasting Commission has also strengthened Jamaica’s implementation capacity by bringing on board two seasoned professionals. Mr Trevor Libert, Project Manager, is a certified professional with over thirty (30) years’ experience developing and managing large-scale integrated projects for ministries, departments, and agencies as well as financial institutions. He is joined by Mr Aldo Cugnini, ATSC 3.0 Technical Advisor, an internationally established Advanced Television Systems Committee expert.”
