Certified 8-VSB Specialist
Certified 8-VSB Specialist (8-VSB) is a specialist title granted to an individual that successfully meets the prerequisite certification and examination requirements in the United States. The certification is regulated by the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), and demonstrates competence in the various aspects of 8-VSB (ATSC) digital television facilities. The "Certified 8-VSB Specialist" title is protected by copyright laws. Individuals who use the title without consent from the Society of Broadcast Engineers could face legal action.
The SBE certifications were created to recognize individuals who practice in career fields which are not regulated by state licensing or Professional Engineering programs. Marine Radio and radar systems still require a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license apart from an SBE certification. Broadcast Engineering is regulated at the national level and not by individual states.
