Saankhya Labs Broadcast Radio Head for ATSC 3.0 showcased at NAB Show Las Vegas
Saankhya Labs and One Media Sinclair showcased their Broadcast Radio Head for ATSC 3.0 at Nab Show, 2019 Las Vegas. The radio head can be mounted on cell towers. One radio head can service a 12-mile radius from a 100 – 150 feet tower. A study in Baltimore indicates that 50 or 60 of them could properly cover the market.
ATSC 3.0 is critical for the future of the broadcasting industry. A large coalition of broadcast TV station groups announced plans to deploy ATSC 3.0 in top 40 US markets by the end of 2020, building on initial rollouts and tests being conducted in markets such as Phoenix, Dallas, Baltimore and Santa Barbara, Calif., among others.
