Last week the Who’s Who in Television Broadcasting gathered for the ATSC Conference on May 10 & 11 2016. The event was held in the Reagan International Trade Center, adjacent to the White House.
Special thanks to Dave Arland for hosting the Consumer TV Products panel and giving Airwavz.tv a public forum to officially announce our first flagship portable, digital TV antenna and receiver for smartphones and tablets called “QuarterBack™”
Our message at the conference was simple: “We love TV, and you will love TV too once you experience QuarterBack on your smartphone” Why? Because QuarterBack makes getting TV on your mobile easy, fast, beautiful, satisfying, immersive and immediately gratifying.
I’ve worked in the wireless data industry and mobile device product development since 1995, and I’ve done extensive research on why TV spectrum has never been included in mobile devices. Turns out Airwavz.tv not only had to solve a very hard scientific and technical hardware problem, we also need to solve a political problem.
The political problem is that our citizen right to access free over-the-air TV is under siege by wireless carriers and cable operators who are actively pressuring the federal government to take over TV spectrum.
What Airwavz.tv knows for certain is that the new ATSC 3.0 Mobile Digital TV standards in development will only be possible if TV Broadcasters operate and own their valuable UHF TV spectrum. UHF is is critical for the ability of a mobile device to receive adequate signal strength indoors, maintain a connection while in motion, and have the proper power consumption controls.
Aiwavz.tv strongly opposes the FCC Incentive Auctions, and we encourage TV Broadcasters NOT to sell their spectrum back to the FCC.
Feel free to reach out to Airwavz.tv for more information about QuarterBack™, the FCC incentive auctions, the spectrum re-pack, or spectrum allocation for wireless carriers.
