Datacasting: NCAA Deployment in Houston Report


The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), under the direction of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), supported deployment of a prototype datacasting system installed at the City of Houston Emergency Operations Center (EOC) during the NCAA Final Four National Championship Games in April 2016. Datacasting is a technology that leverages available bandwidth in digital television signals to provide secure, targeted broadcasts of data, including voice, text, files, images, and video. During the deployment, the datacasting system was used to broadcast relevant video and other data to public safety officers.
