SCBA IS EXCITED TO HOST THE SOCIETY OF ENGINEERS ENNES WORKSHOP. THE WORKSHOP WILL INCLUDE ALL DAY ENGINEERING SEMINARS WITH FOUR INDUSTRY EXPERTS COVERING A RANGE OF TOPICS.
The Mathematics of Reliability
Designing broadcast systems that have high availability is a somewhat nuanced art. It's easy to have a system with considerable redundancy that performs poorly when it comes to reliability. We all know about "counting nines" but how to calculate the reliability of a system isn't something we do everyday. This tutorial covers how to make such calculations and why the results are sometimes surprising. If your management has ever asked; now you can answer fairly accurately the question of just how reliable your system is, identify the parts that might be improved on, and determine just how much reliability makes economic sense.
Fred Baumgartner, CPBE, CBNT, ONEMedia
Grounding and Lightning Protection
Learn various aspects of facility grounding to reduce potential lightning damage. Utilizing good standards of grounding and lightning protection in studio and transmitter sites is more critical than ever! This presentation reviews how routing of grounding conductors can improve a device's chance of surviving a transient event, how to lay out a new site or studio to minimize changes of lightning related damage and discusses how to improve existing facilities within a budget.
Jeff Welton, CBRE, Nautel
Spurs - Your Fault of Not?
One of the least concerning, yet most immediate requirements in broadcasting is spurious emission compliance. It's never a problem until it's a problem. The opportunity for spurious emissions to occur will increase as repack continues. This presentation will explore several spur measurement techniques to identify the sources, strategies to mitigate the interfering signals and considerations for preventing them during the initial RF System design.
Sean Edwards, Director of RF Engineering Shively Labs
In this presentation, we will discuss a combination of tips from the Radio World column and discuss the conversion to AoIP and what AES67 means to you. In this session, you will learn useful tips to do your job more efficiently as well as other things to consider when upgrading an analog facility to AoIP.
John Bisset, Telos Alliance
