PRINCETON, N.J. -- Feb. 24, 2011 -- Triveni Digital today announced that Richard Chernock, the company's CTO, will present "Non-Obvious Considerations for Adding Mobile DTV to a Broadcast Station" during the 2011 PBS Technology Conference at the Las Vegas MGM Grand Hotel. In his 30-minute session, scheduled for 11 a.m. on April 7, Chernock will provide an overview of the factors that play into the addition of Mobile DTV to existing broadcast plants and discuss what the industry has learned so far in the launch of mobile content delivery models.
"ATSC Mobile DTV is an emerging technology that offers the broadcaster considerable opportunity for reaching and retaining viewers," said Chernock. "I look forward to discussing how PBS stations can adopt this model effectively, taking into consideration a range of non-obvious considerations that are key to successful DTV delivery to mobile devices."
Chernock will address issues of workflow, including both scheduling and metadata management, as well as viewing habits, audio and video content, interactive services, and content protection.
At Triveni Digital, Chernock focuses on future technology directions for the company.
