The standards-setting group the National Radio Systems Committee is celebrating its 35 years in business this fall at the Radio Show.
NAB and the Electronic Industries Association, the precursor to what is now the Consumer Electronics Association, formed the group in October 1979. Check out this vintage press release.
NRSC members have been at the core of radio and television tech developments, including technologies related to radio and television’s digital transition as well as digital surround sound for radio, and RDS, among others.
There’s a breakfast reception to recognize the 35th anniversary of the NRSC’s formation on Sept. 11, at the Radio Show. The NRSC is always looking for new members and this event, which begins at 8 a.m. in Room 110 of the Indianapolis Convention Center, is open to all show attendees. During a brief ceremony, current NRSC Chairman Milford Smith, vice president of radio engineering for Greater Media, will offer remarks on the history, and the future of the NRSC.
The Radio Show is scheduled for Sept. 10–12, in Indianapolis.
