NEXTGEN TV Receiver Upgrade Accessory Device FastTrack Program

NEXTGEN TV Receiver Upgrade Accessory Device FastTrack Program

Pearl TV has developed a FastTrack program to accelerate development and consumer deployment of low-cost upgrade accessory receivers that can bring NEXTGEN TV features to consumers watching sets not equipped with NEXTGEN TV technology that do have an HDMI input.

The program seeks to provide support to accessories manufactures interested in making devices that support the full NEXTGEN TV service feature set – enhanced video, audio and the interactive features that will bring more content and modernized viewing guides. To aid manufacturers, detailed requirements are listed in the latest version of the Upgrade Accessory Product Requirements Document, which will be continuously updated.

In addition, the FastTrack program will help accelerate the availability of devices for consumers by guiding device makers through the NEXTGEN TV logo and other conformance requirements, testing, and opportunities for distribution and marketing partnerships. Companies interested in participating in the FastTrack program should contact Pearl TV at:

Patent Pool Licensing Information

Licensing of ATSC 3.0-related patents can be accomplished by executing direct agreements between patent owners (licensors) and manufacturers (licensees) that seek to include the ATSC 3.0 functionality in end-user devices. Alternatively, common licensing platforms/pools have been formed by multiple ATSC 3.0 patent owners to provide an efficient way to license Standard Essential Patents to manufacturers.
