Rather, as Smith alluded in his speech, NAB focuses more on local broadcasters, in particular, on the issues these broadcasters face and the products, equipment and services that they need.
One of the issues broadcasters are dealing with is the new ATSC 3. It makes it possible for local TV stations to broadcast programming over the air, not only to TVs, but also to next-gen-enabled tablets and cell phones, without going through cellular networks. Moreover, he predicted the new broadcast capabilities will keep broadcasters afloat for the next generation.
Another issue broadcasters are facing is frequency changes. A number of local television stations have already switched to new frequencies. In addition, by more than 1, stations will have to change their broadcast frequencies.
Besides traditional broadcasting, NAB also touched on specialty topics. These encompassed virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence; streaming video and podcasting; and cloud computing.He said NAB would be having those conversations with stakeholders over the coming days to determine their appetite for various options.
