Chapter 76, Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), generally meets on the 2nd Wednesday after the first Monday of each month. The date rarely varies from this formula. This keeps the meeting towards the middle of every month.

The usual meeting location is the Sizzler Restaurant, 1010 Postal Way, Springfield, OR 97401, 541-726-9933  and the time is 11:30 a.m. You do not need to be a member of the SBE to attend these meetings, nor do you have to be a member of the local broadcast community. As long as the topic of the meeting is of interest to you, you’re invited. If you see that a given month is “Reserved” for an exhibitor, it means simply that. Additional details of meetings are posted here as soon as they’re available.

Rick Belding, Manager of Sales Engineering for Vela, will be our guest speaker

Compliance monitoring and logging should be more than just making sure your signals follow all the rules. There are things you should expect which will help your team be better informed, more efficient, and get increased value out of your solution. Rick will explore these concepts with us and we also discuss the evolution of mere logging into Smart Logging.

Ric Belding has been a broadcast and playout industry professional for over 20 years. He’s served as a software developer, systems engineer, sales engineer, and technical team manager for many of the most prominent solution providers. Ric’s worked with customers at all levels from community channels to large multi-channel playout facilities and as Vela’s Manager for Sales Engineering, he’s intimately familiar with the needs and workflows for compliance monitoring, recording, and logging. Ric is highly regarded, throughout the industry, for his file and IT-based technology and workflow expertise.

You do not have to be a member of, or be certified by, SBE to attend our monthly meetings. However, joining the SBE helps the Chapter remain strong because a portion of your dues are sent back to your local chapter
