Inside Look #2: Tech Session Lineup at the TAB Show

- Exploring New Tech and Ways to Maximize Tech On-Hand

Engineers and managers seeking ways to get a better handle on their physical plant have a lot to choose from in the lineup of tech sessions set for the TAB Show in Austin Aug. 7-8.

In addition to 16 sessions covering everything from ATSC 3.0 and solid-state transmitters to innovations in grounding technology and repack challenges, engineers and operations managers will have ample time to explore the 140-booth trade show featuring the latest gear driving the industry.

You can build a personal schedule of TAB Show sessions and events within the TAB app which can be downloaded in the Apple or Google Play stores. Username is whatever email address you used to register for the Show.  Password is tab2019.  Onsite WIFI is provided free to delegates, courtesy Gray Television.

National EAS Test Reporting, FCC Compliance
With the next national EAS test slated for 2:20 (Eastern) on Aug. 7, TAB has scheduled a three-hour filing “party” that afternoon to ensure everyone has ample opportunity to file their day-of test reports before midnight. Attorney Jessica Nyman with TAB’s FCC legal counsel Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman will be on hand to help troubleshoot.

Inspectors for TAB’s Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program and Nyman’s law partner Scott Flick walk through common compliance failures at Texas stations and how the online public file is being viewed by the FCC’s enforcement division.

ATSC 3.0 & Spectrum Repack
Multiple programs are slated that approach these topics from different angles, including:

Solid State: A Tale of Two Media
Solid state transmitters and their promise of cost savings and operating efficiency get a hard look as engineers see clear benefits for TV, but a cloudier future for Radio.

Smarter Tech & the Bottom Line
Multiple experts explore how technology investments and new operating strategies can boost a station’s bottom line, covering topics such as:

Capping It Off
Rounding out the program are presentations on how All-Digital AM could be the ultimate solution to vexing interference problems and how Radio and TV stations alike should be protecting their C-Band positions.
