Presentation on ATSC 3.0 SFNs at AFCCE in Washington

Together with Acrodyne Services, PROGIRA will make a presentation at the AFCCE (Association of Federal Communication Consulting Engineers) Luncheon meeting, Thursday November 30, in Washington. The title of the presentation is “Evaluating Service Availability for ATSC 3.0 Single Frequency Networks”.

Presenters will be Mats Ek (PROGIRA) and Bill Soreth (Acrodyne Services).

An abstract of the presentation is given below:

“The ATSC 3.0 standard will permit broadcasters to offer many new services to devices not traditionally considered when designing a transmitter site. This new standard also allows for the delivery of more uniform service over a desired coverage area by operating additional transmitters in a Single Frequency Network (SFN). Evaluating the available Field Strength at a given receive location is no longer sufficient to predict if service will be available. This presentation discusses a presentation format that combines Field Strength, self-interference, receiver type and other critical ATSC 3.0/SFN parameters in a single plot for ease of presentation and interpretation, using Progira network Planning software, PROGIRA® plan. Examples with reception problems and their improved versions will be investigated”
