Golf Tournaments, outdoor stadiums, and auto races are excellent applications for DTV White Space broadcasts. After many years, and millions of dollars, WiFi infrastructure struggles to deliver broadcast quality TV to each attendee of a major event, football game, concert or tournament; yet broadcast digital TV has been doing this for more than a decade. White Space TV broadcast is simply a small, localized, broadcast TV system that delivers video content that can be accessed by any receivers without putting additional load on your WiFi network. Imagine allowing your guests to see live TV while at the event.
West Pond provides the infrastructure required to enable small, and sometimes portable, TV stations. This is an ideal use for DTV White Space. Check out the links below to see what our partners are doing to enable this new and exciting market.
