Event is in late October

The IEEE Broadcast Symposium is offering a “virtual attendance” option.

The annual event in Alexandria, Va., is produced by the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society; dates are Oct. 19­–21.

Organizers will stream the symposium live and provide archived on-demand viewing later. Sessions are on a “pay for view” basis; keynotes will be posted for public access.

“Not merely a webcast, the virtual venue will offer a global audience an engaging, immersive and interactive experience that replicates the feel of the familiar physical conference event,” the group stated. That platform allows virtual attendees to network, download material and participate in Q&As. Production services are provided byNewTek. InfoNeedle and Certain Software provide the virtual events platform.

The symposium features technical presentations including two half-day tutorials on “Connected TV” technology and HD Radio. Keynote speakers include John Luff, media technology consultant; Peter Doyle, FCC audio division chief; and Sterling Davis, chair of the Open Mobile Video Coalition Technical Advisory Group and recently retired VP of technical operations for Cox Media Group.
