Jason Justman

Sinclair Broadcast Group, Distinguished Engineer

As a distinguished engineer with SinclairDigital since 2015, Jason Justman is focused on developing next-generation cloud-based solutions for converged OTT, digital, and broadcast systems. While at Sinclair, Justman has helped architect and deliver digital products to innovate capabilities across all touchpoints of media workflows, with a focus on embracing cloud solutions for both VOD and live workflows. This investment in digital products has allowed Sinclair to bring new tools and capabilities for news and sports production to help deliver the right content, to the right audience, on any device.

In support of next-gen broadcast development objectives and focused on convergence of ATSC 3.0 and OTT, Justman is also supporting the open-source software community with libatsc3.  The project is available on Github and provides a practical functional implementation of the A/331 specification, including MMT and ROUTE-DASH media playback and object delivery. libatsc3 is developed in C, and as framework library, has been successfully integrated in standalone software tools and Android sample apps to showcase low-latency out-of-order MMT with media fragmentation unit (MFU) support. Real-world playback of ATSC 3.0 content is supported on-the-go with Airwavz, LowaSIS, and Saankhya USB dongles.
