Articles You May Have Missed – May 17, 2017
Whether you are facing a move to ATSC 3.0 or need to change out RF systems, the recent NAB show provided plenty of options for RF engineers. For those more ‘grounded’, production efficiency was top-of-mind with attendees. Our editors review both technologies and the companies providing solutions in these articles.
The FCC Spectrum Repack makes history repeat itself as TV transmitter, antenna and broadcast RF systems exhibits are some of the most crowded at the 2017 NAB Show. Demand for new TV RF systems hasn’t been this strong since the DTV transition early last decade.
Many transmitter engineers focused on repack and ATSC 3.0. Most didn’t have time to observe and explore the many details and beauty of 4K cameras and UHD broadcasting, but learning more about “next generation” ATSC 3.0 DTV was the number one or two priority on nearly every transmitter engineer’s must-see list, repacking or not. Read more about the upcoming transition in, “On-Air In-Air at 2017 NAB Show.”
One of the tasks that is crushing budgets these days is the burgeoning cost of creating multiple deliverables. With so many new formats and platforms being demanded, it is not unusual for a studio to create literally dozens of differently formatted copies of a finished project. And it’s not just a matter of running all those dubs through various codecs, it’s also a matter of QC-ing them because even if you don’t eyeball them all, someone else surely will, and just one caption out of place, one garbled sound bite, means a costly makeover.
