For years there has been talk about starting an SBE student chapter at Napa Valley College. Napa Valley College has had a Broadcast Television Engineering Technology (BTET) program since at least 1985, and is an SBE-certified school, meaning that students who graduate from that two-year program with a B or better grade point average are entitled to receive the SBE Certified Broadcast Technologist (CBT) certification without taking the SBE CBT examination.
Audio over IP for Radio and ENG
Daniel Loeffler - MAYAH Communications
The focus of the meeting is primarily targeted on the emerging audio over IP issues for audio codecs. Unlike ISDN, which was very simple and reliable, IP however, raises new issues for reliable and quality audio over IP transmission for radio and ENG. (ISDN is fading from the market gradually due to costs and availability). Factors that influence effective Audio over IP that will be discussed as follows:
- CODEC and compression algorithms: Latency, Quality and bit rates
- N/ACIP and SIP protocol for connectively to all codecs including Telos, Comrex,Tieline and others)
- Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), RTP and Voice-over-IP
- ADSL vs. SDSL QOS (Quality of Service) for internet transmission
- Remote audio over IP: 3G/4G, WLAN, BGAN.
- OPTIONAL: IP connect a MAYAH to your Telos, COMREX or other IP codecs supporting SIP at your facility (Using our Server)
