The NAB Radio Board supported the concept of launching a broadcast lab to “enhance terrestrial broadcasting,” according to a statement released by NAB. The mission of the lab would be to “improve and enhance delivery of over-the-air broadcasting to consumers,” stated NAB. Its approval is contingent upon funding issues being resolved. Maximum Service Television asked NAB to commit $6 million over three years to the project, with an additional $6 million expected to come from CEA member companies. MSTV expected to commit another $3 million.
