The Broadcasters Clinic returns with an in-person event in September.
The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association has announced the conference agenda.
“We are committed to making the Broadcasters Clinic safe for all. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the Clinic,” WBA stated on its website. “If you are not vaccinated, please wear a mask. Guidelines are subject to change based on the latest public health guidance.”
The longtime, engineering-friendly event will be held Sept. 8 to 10 at the Madison Marriott West Hotel in Middleton, Wis.
Topics relevant to radio attendees include virtualization, cloud infrastructure and ”containerization”; computer modeling of FM directional antennas; on-air processing in the cloud; SRT protocol for signal distribution; the role of metadata in radio; saving power in FM transmitters; lessons from Alternative Broadcast Inspections; cybersecurity; LED obstruction lights; and post-pandemic management strategies.
Of the three days of the conference, the first day focuses on radio topics, the third is about television, and the middle day bridges both.
David Layer of the National Association of Broadcasters is among the featured speakers. An early bird rate applies for registration until July 15.
