When: Thursday, August 15th @ Noon
Where: Wild River Pizza, 2684 N. Pacific Hwy, Medford
Who: 

Don Backus, account manager for Rohde & Schwarz will be our guest speaker.

With Total Cost of Ownership increasing for TV and FM broadcasters, there is an increasing need to reduce these costs over the life-cycle of the transmission system while improving performance and reducing ongoing maintenance costs. From alternative cooling systems to more efficient designs, from reductions in required floor space to reducing service costs by minimizing required maintenance, there are a number of factors that reduce the cost of ownership while improving up-time and performance. We will look at TCO and some of the advanced transmitter technologies that enable reduction in operating costs, both for Radio and TV transmitters. We’ll also discuss some forward looking technology initiatives including HD Radio Generation 4.

Don Backus is Account Manager, Radio Transmitters for global communication technology leader and innovator Rohde & Schwarz, handling Canada and the United States. Prior to joining Rohde & Schwarz in 2017, Don was Eastern US Sales Manager for Broadcast Electronics for five years. Don was previously VP of Sales & Marketing at ENCO Systems for 13 years and prior to that has held a number of positions in radio as an on-air personality, production director, general manager and chief engineer.
