WASHINGTON, DC -- NAB President and CEO David K. Rehr sent a letter today to Aneesh Chopra, who was recently named chief technology officer by President Barack Obama. Rehr also took the opportunity to outline some of the key innovations taking place in the broadcasting business.
"Both radio and television are embracing their digital future, with HD Radio gaining marketplace momentum for digital radio transmission, and the impending completion of the digital television (DTV) transition on June 12," wrote Rehr. "NAB also maintains an active technology advocacy program called FASTROAD, with an overall mission to stimulate launching new broadcast services and enabling reception of broadcast services on a wide variety of devices."
