New Enhanced Version of ATSC 3.0 TV Gateway for NextGenTV Developers & System Integrators

August 11, 2021

VBOX ATSC 3.0 Testbed

New Enhanced Version of TV Gateway for NextGenTV Developers & System Integrators


HERZLIYA, ISRAEL August 11th 2021 VBox Communications, a pioneering specialist in broadcast TV streaming, recording and digital datacasting, announced the availability of its new ATSC 3.0 Testbed – an enhanced version of the company’s original ATSC 3.0 Android TV Gateway product released earlier this year.

The VBox ATSC 3.0 Testbed is designed for TV stations, broadcast engineers, video system integrators, digital app developers, and others in the emerging NextGenTV technology development ecosystem looking to test “real-world” ATSC 3.0 features and functionality.

As US deployments of the ATSC 3.0 broadcast standard approach 50% market penetration later this summer – and more than 70% by the end of 2021 – a priority shift towards commercial productization and monetization of potential NextGenTV capabilities is quickly coming into focus. VBox’s ATSC 3.0 Testbed provides an ideal, ready-made toolkit for monitoring service performance and ascertaining technical viability for product field trials and market launches.

The VBox ATSC 3.0 Testbed offers the ability to analyze both linear and “beyond-TV” ATSC 3.0 signal provision through features such as:

  • ATSC 3.0 Signal Reception: Ensuring signals arrive as expected, via ROUTE and DASH protocols;
  • Advanced Emergency Alerts Reception: Enabling AEA-standard weather and storm information as well as localized emergency messaging;
  • Electronic Service Guide Reception and Visualization: Monitoring of broadcaster/3rd-party programming information for accuracy and timeliness;
  • SDK Provision and Testing Documentation: Enabling oversight of 3rd-party application development, deployment and compliance testing.
