SBE Chapter 56 Meeting Minutes of July 22, 2020

Virtual Meeting – Zoom Conference

Program:  Remote Broadcasting Connections: Trends and Suggestions
Presented by Doug Ferber

With the COVID‐19 emergency forcing social distancing upon us all, radio and television broadcasters require contingency plans allowing station talent to stay safe and go live on‐air remotely from home.  Tieline has been creating IP remote broadcast solutions featuring multiple layers of redundancy and remote control capability for decades. As a result, there is already a large range of flexible and rock solid streaming solutions to suit every budget.

Doug Ferber has been involved in the Media and Communications industries for over 30 years. He began his career as an entry level sales trainee for Bonneville International Corporation in 1984 at KIRO-AM/TV in Seattle Washington. He completed his MBA from Southern Methodist University in 1989 and went on to work as an Account Executive for Capital Cities/ABC Radio in Dallas, Texas.  From 2003 until 2010 Doug was an Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas-Dallas where he taught graduate level classes in Sales Management.

Doug serves as Tieline’s Vice President of Sales for the Americas.

Please plan to join us on our next virtual SBE Meeting as we discuss the technology behind working remotely in this challenging time.
