Read This Before Heading to Vegas

It’s convention time again
Publish date:

It�s convention time again. If you are reading this edition prior to heading to Vegas, note that we�ve included some special features for attendees.

First, we�ve got a great session list previewing the NAB Show�s Broadcast Engineering Conference. If you�re a regular reader of either the print or online editions, I know you�ll find this list compelling. Secondly, check out a selection of some new products, many of which will be brand new at the show.� In this month�s Trends in Technology column, we also discuss transmitter products. The North Hall booth numbers are included to make your planning a bit easier, too.

After a couple of days on the floor, kick those shoes off and read what the Wandering Engineer has to say about the NAB Show in Sign Off. Clearly, he�s been to a few spring shows over the years.

Kim Komando has an incredible new facility in Phoenix, Ariz., and we have a tour of it for you in our Facility Showcase. Those of you contemplating new builds must see this � and make time to see video gear at the show.

And have you heard of �the Netflix of Radio?� I�m referring to the NPR One app, which Fardau Van Neerden covers this month. Is this the future of our industry?

We�re picking up where we left off last time with Tech Tips: Our transmitter rehab has now reached the final amplifier stage.

Lee Petro discusses changes the FCC is proposing with the EAS system. This is something you need to stay on top of.

Please say �hello!� if you see me on the exhibit floor or attending one of the BEC sessions. It will be great to meet you and get some feedback.

It makes sense to stick around the station to the extent possible now; the weather has turned, and roads are slick from rain, or perhaps covered with a thin layer of snow

IP infrastructure, FM boosters, drones, the behavior of FM receivers, digital on the AM band … these are among topics of engineering sessions at the NAB Show.
