Subjects for the year’s Radio TechCon include Smart Speakers, 5G and #onelovemanchester when it takes place in London this month.
Topics to be covered include the history of broadcast engineering, an in-depth debate on the implications of 5G for broadcast, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the #onelovemanchester conference was transmitted to the world.
There will also be mini-masterclass sessions on Smart Speakers and RF safety, along with updates from the regulator, a demonstration of a ‘virtual studio’ used to train engineers, and advice on protecting your station’s output from cyber attack.
There will also be a session on how engineers can work with local schools to find the next generation of the technical community. Delegates will also hear the latest research on how object-based audio might assist listeners with hearing loss, and will get practical, hands-on tips on what the AES67 standard means in real-life.
And all Radio TechCon attendees will receive official CPD accreditation from the IET - a first for the event.
The whole day will be compèred by Radio TechCon veteran, and industry legend, David Lloyd.
“We’re really looking forward to welcoming engineers, technicians, producers and managers who love radio and technology to Radio TechCon,” says Ann Charles, one of the organisers of the event. “Whether you have worked in radio for years, or are brand new to the industry, we hope there will be something there for everyone to enjoy.”
The conference, on November 27th, will be accompanied by a mini-trade fair, open exclusively for delegates, with representatives from Broadcast Bionics, Broadcast Radio, HHB, Wedel, Preco, the IET and STEMNET.
