ATSC 3.0 in the MSO environment

This following paper will provide a general overview of the next-generation broadcast television standard, including new features and service enhancements made possible with the technology. It describes what is involved with receiving ATSC 1.0/ATSC 3.0 within cable headends. While in the beginning since broadcasters will simulcast ATSC 1.0 and 3.0, there may be no needed change to cable headends, over time increasingly broadcasters and MVPDs can collaboratively provide enhanced services for cable customers. 
Several different setups for receiving ATSC 3.0 programming from broadcasters will be examined for cable headends, including near- and long-term. In particular, the session will discuss headend requirements for HEVC IP transport stream delivery, and system architectures for combination of off-air ATSC 3.0 service reception with enhancements delivered from the broadcaster over alternative connections.
