ATSC annual conference and 40th anniversary celebration
It was a wonderful honor to receive ATSC's Bernard Lechner award on the occasion of the 4oth anniversary of the Advanced Television Systems Committee. This award is especially meaningful to me since Bernie Lechner was my leader and mentor for many years at RCA / Sarnoff Laboratories. Bernie taught me so many things about the importance of standards to the industry ecosystem and to business, as well as the values of collaboration and compromise. So many insights learned from my mentors were crucially important as we went through the competitive and collaborative phases of the Grand Alliance and setting the ATSC 1.0 digital HDTV standard.
Thank you ATSC President Madeleine Noland, Board Chair Richard Friedel, ATSC Board members and ATSC colleagues for this wonderful recognition. I would also like to congratulate Saakhya Labs for their excellent technical advances and their recognition as the recipient of the 2023 Mark Richer Industry Leadership Medal.

April 10, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the World Premiere of the Digital HDTV Grand Alliance system at NAB95. To commemorate the occasion, I'm releasing some "never-before-seen" recordings of the Grand Alliance's first demonstration and press conference, which are on a special page here:
There are also a complete set of photos and many additional items on this page. Be sure to read the Grand Alliance press release and brochure and see the photos of our demonstrations for the FCC!
