Topics of discussion:
Technology challenges: The new transmission system deals directly with the unpredictability of the spectrum auction, new requirements for ATSC 3.0, and accommodation for delivery to mobile devices.
Location challenges: One World Trade Center is in a hi-security location, the tallest building in North America, and located in a helicopter no-fly zone.
Challenges of the build: Space inside the building was extremely limited, crawl space for power and feed line inconsistently available, and all work was tightly coordinated with dozens of other projects.
