Harris Broadcast says it will begin a six-week tour Feb. 5 exploring radio broadcast technology trends and engineering challenges. Harris representatives will also discuss revenue generation through MaxxCasting, the company’s joint initiative with Geo-Broadcast Solutions to maximize FM signal coverage.
The tour begins at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley hotel, followed by other stops in California. The tour will visit cities in the West, South, Midwest and the East Coast through the spring. A list of dates and locations can be found on the Harris Broadcast blog.
Harris experts Geoff Mendenhall, Tim Anderson and Paul Barzizza will present information on HD Radio broadcasting; IP studio architectures; and the advantages of turnkey solutions, project management, as well as preventative maintenance. Attendees can also watch hands-on demonstrations of Intraplex IP Link audio codecs, Flexiva transmitters and PR&E studio consoles.
The road show will also feature lunchtime sessions on MaxxCasting, with a focus on how to adopt the network-based technology, which is designed to boost signal coverage and help stations to gain listeners and advertisers in order to increase revenue.
John Kean, senior technologist at NPR Labs, will also join the tour at various stops to provide market analysis and system design insight.
