Presented by Mike Simon with Rohde & Schwarz

We will take a realistic look into what is needed to make Mobile DTV work. Mike Simon will trace the development of ATSC – (M/H) from inception to implementation with a short description of some obstacles and solutions and focus on “how it works” and what you need to know to keep it working correctly. We also plan to have the R&S ATSC (M/H) Analyzer on site to look at the actual signal components.

US Mobile Advertising revenues will grow 43% to $2.9 billion in 2014. Hardware Engineering will be the key to its success with transmit and receive Antenna designs, Encoder Technology and Transmission systems all being studied for this new wave of technology. The February issue of Broadcast Engineering magazine has a cover story on Optimizing Transmit Antennas for mobile. The NAB’s FastRoad Project on Embedded FM and TV Antenna Report, researchers tackle tri-band embedded antenna designs capable of servicing mobile DTV and FM radio reception in mobile and handheld devices.
Mike Simon has over 30 years broadcast engineering experience and currently is Advanced Technologies Manager, Rohde & Schwarz, Inc. He holds a BSEE and a Master of Science Telecommunications from the University of Pittsburgh. Mike holds several patents in the broadcasting area, has an active interest in mobile DTV and is an active member of ATSC, IEEE BTS, TIA TR47, and DVB Technical Module.
