According to a release, the Radio Show Technology Program at the upcoming Radio Show introduces managers and engineers to new ideas and challenges them to find solutions for existing issues.
On tap this year are sessions covering revitalizing AM radio and the opportunities and challenges for radio evolving from a rapidly changing tech environment; planning for and recovering from the unexpected; IP for radio; MDCL and how it can reduce electrical power expenses for AM transmitter sites.
On Sept. 18, is “Essential Planning for the Unexpected,” from 9–10 a.m. This session examines disaster prep, including planning, tests and drills. Following it is “Recovering from the Unexpected,” which uses case studies to help broadcasters craft an emergency plan.
In the afternoon, the focus shifts to “Revitalizing AM Radio” with an interactive panel discussion from 1:15–2:15 p.m. “Digging Deeper-Discussing AM Technical Enhancements” then gets into the meat of the issue, with the technical aspects of the band’s potential.
On Sept. 19, the open National Radio Systems Committee meetings will be held, focusing on technology applications and implementations.
Sept. 20’s first session examines “Are Our Digital Strategies Working?” through case studies. The next two presentations center on efficiencies and savings as related to technological advantages: “Slash Your AM Transmitter Power Bill with MDCL” and “Simple Flexible Studio Design Using AOIP.”
The Radio Show Luncheon will also be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20.
The 2013 BEC Proceedings have also recently been released, featuring select technical papers on topics, including: IP for television and radio, next generation television broadcasting, audience measurement technologies and AM band revitalization.
The 2013 Radio Show will be held in Orlando, Fla., at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel on Sept. 18–20.
