New 'IP Video for Broadcast Engineers' Scheduled For 2016 PBS TechCon

News Image
A new session of the popular one-day course, "IP Video for Broadcast Engineers," has been scheduled for 16 April in conjunction with the 2016 PBS Technology Conference (TechCon) in Las Vegas.

A program of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS), the course is taught by Wes Simpson, owner of Telecom Product Consulting and an IEEE BTS Member. 

Taking place at the PBS Las Vegas studio at 3050 E. Flamingo Road, the "IP Video for Broadcast Engineers" course offers attendees an understanding of how IP video technologies will impact their current and future plans for video networking and delivery. Simpson provides a detailed look at the key technologies used to transmit video signals over IP networks to viewers, for contribution and distribution, and within production facilities. The course describes the underlying technologies and shows practical applications for them, introducing students to a range of terminology and industry standards.

"We've designed 'IP Video for Broadcast Engineers' to give students the tools and skills they need to integrate IP technologies smoothly into workflows and improve the efficiency of their in-house networks. In addition, engineers and technicians will learn how to design, use, and maintain IP-based video systems that lie at the core of the modern production facility," Simpson said.

"The upcoming March session of the course sold out quickly – a strong indication of the demand for training in the rapidly expanding field of IP video delivery. We expect the April 16 course to fill even more quickly given its role in PBS TechCon and proximity to the 2016 NAB Show."

Modules to be covered in "IP Video for Broadcast Engineers" include IP basics, IP video, consumer video delivery, IP contribution/distribution networks, private and in-studio IP video, and system-level considerations.
PBS will offer free bus transportation for April 16 course attendees to the PBS facility on Flamingo Road, leaving at 8:30 a.m. from The Mirage hotel. Lunch will be provided. Online registration is now available for $200. Class size for the April 16 course is limited to 35 students and will sell out quickly.
