PHOENIX, Ariz., October 15, 2018 — Television broadcasters working together to advance the launch of next-gen TV broadcasting are planning an early 2019 trial of the mobile video capabilities of the new broadcast TV standard, in concert with Avis Budget Group.
“We’ve identified several potential use cases for television-delivered signals in a passenger car, and from basic reception of over-the-air audio and video signals to a range of interactive capabilities, since the new broadcast TV standard can easily accommodate reception in a moving vehicle. Planning is underway now to launch the first in-car tests in early 2019,” said Anne Schelle, managing director of Pearl TV, the broadcast TV group that is managing the Phoenix Model Market project.read more
