The Canadian Humber Institute’s ATSC 3.0 laboratory is equipped with Triveni Digital

Triveni Digital has announced that the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, based in Canada, has established an ATSC 3.0 living lab and test bed using a solution from Triveni Digital, including the SkyScraper® XM ATSC 3.0 Datacasting System.

The lab will enable multinational industry stakeholders to experiment with delivering advanced television and datacasting applications, such as remote learning, personalized advertising, and automotive applications. The B²C Lab is set to be the first of its kind in North America to include an ATSC 3.0 system and a 5G core network, offering R&D pathways to achieve broadcast and broadband network convergence.

“Humber College is thrilled to explore the new business models and innovative services enabled by ATSC 3.0 and NextGen TV,” said Orest Sushko, director of the B²C Lab at Humber College. “We chose to partner with Triveni Digital because of their innovative leadership in ATSC 3.0 technology, real-world deployment experience, and outstanding end-to-end solution. With Triveni Digital, we have created a cutting-edge lab environment where academics, students, and industry stakeholders can learn and experiment to push the boundaries of what is possible with both television and datacasting applications.”

The B²C Lab is developing an OTA experimental RF transmission system test bed with multiple transmitters and antennas covering the Toronto area, allowing for developing an ATSC 3.0 intertower communication network and a single-frequency network. Humber College is using Triveni Digital’s SkyScraper datacasting system in the B²C Lab to support non-real time use cases with optimized bandwidth utilization.

In addition, e B²C Lab has incorporated Triveni Digital’s ATSC 3.0 Broadcast Gateway scheduler, GuideBuilder XM ATSC 3.0 Transport Encoder, and StreamScope XM Analyzer for ATSC 3.0 datacasting. The GuideBuilder XM generates ATSC 3.0 metadata associated with the content being transmitted by SkyScraper. Using the StreamScope XM Analyzer, research teams will analyze and troubleshoot the ATSC 3.0 datacasting streams.

“The B²C Lab will foster partnerships between Humber College and the private sector, facilitating commercialization, adaptation in the marketplace, and the adoption of ATSC 3.0 in Canada,” said Ralph Bachofen, vice president of sales and marketing at Triveni Digital. “We’re proud to partner with Humber College on this important initiative and be at the forefront of ATSC 3.0 innovation.”
