Verance Corp. said it has retained McDermott Media Group, a new firm led by B&C Hall of Famer and former Media General COO Deb McDermott, as part of an effort to help broadcasters move toward the emerging ATSC 3.0 broadcast transmission standard.
Nil Shah, CEO of Verance, said the plan includes providing broadcasters with access to Aspect, a content and measurement solution that works with legacy ATSC 1.0 and one that has been adopted as part of ATSC 3.0. The ATSC has characterized the Verance watermark as "a foundational component of ATSC 3.0" for measurable, personalized and interactive TV at scale.
