Triveni Digital has announced that the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning has incorporated its tech into its newly-established and first-of-its-kind ATSC 3.0 living lab and test bed in Canada, using an end-to-end solution from Triveni, including the SkyScraper® XM ATSC 3.0 Datacasting System. Through Triveni Digital’s end-to-end solution, the Broadcast — Broadband Convergence (B²C) Lab will enable Canadian and multinational stakeholders, students, and faculty to experiment with delivering advanced television and datacasting applications like remote learning, personalized advertising, and automotive applications. In addition to SkyScraper, the 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, playing an essential role in the datacasting process. Using the StreamScope XM Analyzer, research teams will analyze and troubleshoot the ATSC 3.0 datacasting streams to ensure quality of service.
