Transmitter maker Nautel has released its August schedule of “Transmission Talk Tuesday” webinars.
For Aug. 17 Kirk Harnack will join TTT regular host Jeff Welton to talk about the various forms of MPX delivery and will feature practical examples of implementation in the field, including microMPX.
The Aug. 24 session gets into Raspberry Pi. Joining Welton will be Nautel’s Alex Hartman. He will present some of the designs he has done using Raspberry Pi and Arduino technology. Hartman explains, “Mini computers seem to be taking over the world. For well under $100 you can get a full blown computer on a tiny circuit board, with peripherals. You can do some great things with these devices.”
Ending the month, on Aug. 31, Welton will be joined by the NAB’s VP of Advanced Engineering David Layer along with Radioplayer Worldwide General Manager Lawrence Galkoff for a discussion centered on RDS. According to Welton they’ll discuss “how what you put on your RDS can make a big difference in the appearance on the dashboard — and going forward, it will make a significant impact on your stations’ ability to work with hybrid radio.”
The Transmission Talk Tuesday webinars start at noon (ET) and are free though they require preregistration. Sessions are posted for those who can’t make the live performance. Attendance can earn one-half of an SBE recertification point.
