Session Highlights

Stream Playback and Distribution: Encoding and stream delivery are key factors affecting a broadcaster's distribution strategy. Today, all connected devices from Internet radios to mobile phones to IP-enabled televisions/set-top-boxes to Moblin-powered Mobile Internet Devices are potential radios. Raymond Archie, director of streaming operation for CBS Radio will chair a panel including Intel Ecosystem Digital Home Group Manager Majd Naciri, Reciva Internet Radio CEO Ben Terrell, Vtuner CEO Harry Johnson, Stream The World CTO Jean-Francois Gadoury and others.

Audio for Newsgathering: This session will move beyond the acronyms to investigate current and emerging options for audio field recording and backhaul.

Facility Design: A Case Study: A team of design and system integration specialists will scope out a hypothetical media environment. The panel's collaborative process in addressing this open-ended fantasy should produce an abundance of surprising recommendations and conclusions. Among the participants in this two hour panel are John Storyk of Walters-Storyk Design Group, HVAC expert Marcy Ramos, Judy Elliott-Brown of Connectivity, contractor Chris Harmaty of Technical Structures, Dirk Noy of WSDG, and David Atkins of Argosy Studio and Technical Furniture.
