AM and Hybrid Radio Among Topics Covered at the 2014 Radio Show Technology Program


-- New to the Radio Show, Society of Broadcast Engineers Partners with NAB to Develop Conference Program --

WASHINGTON, D.C./NEW YORK -- The 2014 Radio Show Technology Program, produced by NAB Labs in cooperation with the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), will address developments in AM and hybrid radio among other technology and engineering issues impacting Radio. The Radio Show, held September 10-12 in Indianapolis, is produced by the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB) and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).

The 2014 Radio Show will include an NAB Labs presentation on the latest news from the field as testing continues on AM stations nationwide. These results, along with accompanying laboratory tests, will determine the feasibility of an all-digital future for AM broadcasters.

NAB Labs will also present a session on hybrid radio with a high-level panel discussion covering the latest success stories and opportunities for the technology, particularly the integration of internet and broadcast. Actual implementation case studies will follow showing the technical requirements necessary to bring this value-added content to radio stations.

NAB Labs and SBE will offer an extended program including intermediate to advanced instruction for engineers to address the impact of information technology on radio infrastructure. Wayne Pacena, director of engineering at Texas A&M University, will present a session titled "IT for Radio Engineers – IP Networking: When to Route and When to Switch." New to the Radio Show, SBE certification examinations will be available for SBE members seeking to advance their careers.
