ATLANTA�NAB Labs has been hard at work since its launch to help boost the broadcast radio and TV industry, and at the upcoming 2015 Radio Show it will showcase a number of its projects. David Layer, senior director of advanced engineering, will be on hand to give the presentation, which will touch on FM chips, all-digital AM testing, and more.
FM chips have been one of the buzzier topics in the news of late with the announcement that AT&T and T-Mobile are embracing activation of FM chips in smartphones, along with Sprint. It�s been a focus of NAB Labs as well, as Layer intends to cover it in his presentation. �NAB Labs has been a major partner and supporter of the NextRadio initiative and we are excited to see so much progress being made here,� said Layer.
Layer also plans to discuss some of NAB Labs� more under-the-radar projects, including work being done by the National Radio Systems Committee. He will also discuss some new and upcoming projects for NAB Labs. �One of our most recent projects, just now getting underway, is the upgrading of our radio laboratory test bed to include FM as well as AM radio testing capabilities, and I will be discussing that as well as some of the first FM lab projects we are considering,� said Layer.
The �NAB Labs� Focus on Radio Show� will take place Thursday, Oct. 1, from 3:30 p.m. � 4 p.m. at the Innovation Stage in the Marketplace. The 2015 Radio Show takes place from Sept. 30-Oct. 2 in Atlanta.
