Watch BitRouter’s presentation of the ATSC3pro at CES 2019.

Introduction: ATSC3pro is a Linux based ATSC 3.0 single stream professional receiver. It can run on a desktop or laptop PC with several different demodulators. ATSC3pro is based on BitRouter’s ATSC 3.0 middleware package called ATSC3pak that is described here.

The current, January 2019, release of ATSC3pro supports the following functionality:

  • HTML5 based UI with grid guide
  • HTML5 native app development SDK
  • Native C/C++ UI
  • Channel change
  • Channel number and call letter display
  • Remote software updates
  • Remote stream capture in ATSC Link Layer (ALP) or PCAP format
