ATSC

(Advanced Television Systems Committee) The international digital television (DTV) standard in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and South Korea as well as other smaller countries. Broadcast over the air (terrestrial) or via satellite and cable, ATSC transmits in a 6 MHz channel and uses MPEG-2 video compression and Dolby Digital audio compression. ATSC was adopted by the FCC in 1996. For details, see DTV. See ATSC tuner.

ATSC 2.0 and 3.0
Version 2.0 of the ATSC standard adds support for advertisements, video-on-demand, interactive features and mobile devices that act as a second screen. Version 3.0 will be IP based and provide increased efficiency and performance as well as support 4K and HDR video. Object-based audio, targeted emergency alerts and GPS navigation updates are also part of ATSC 3.0. See 4K TV and HDR.
