“Best Practices for Modern Transmitter Remote Control”
Presented by Matt Leland with Burk
You are invited to attend the next SBE Chapter 56 meeting on Tuesday, February 20th at 12:00 Noon at the KOED Studios, 535 N. Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK. Lunch will be provided!
IP based transmitter remote control is providing busy broadcast engineers with much needed relief in the form of better data, more granular alarm notifications and armchair access to multiple transmitter sites. Environmental monitoring and flowchart based automatic control functions increase up-time and protect equipment from extremes, while distributed I/O provides cost savings by eliminating long multi-conductor wiring runs. This presentation will present best practices for specifying, installing and configuring a remote control system. Special attention will be paid to efficiently upgrading legacy systems to IP. Simplified automatic testing of backup equipment will also be demonstrated through the use of active flowcharts.
