The Midwest Next-Gen TV Summit was designed to help television station general managers and engineering staff understand the opportunities available with the new ATSC 3.0 standard that seamlessly combines over-the-air with over-the-top content sources.

More than 130 people attended the summit which was jointly presented by the state broadcasters associations from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. Our thanks to the generous support of our summit sponsors: LG, Pearl, Sinclair Broadcast Group, GatesAir, Ericsson Media Solution, Osborn Engineering, Rohde & Schwarz, and Triveni Digital.
