Virtual Radio – Real Applications

Our guest speaker is Bill Bennett from Lawo, Inc on Wed, August 9th, 2017.

Bill will do a presentation on Virtualization in the Radio Broadcasting Enviroment.

•    What Touch Screen  Mixing is about
•    Availability and Adoption (who’s doing what, with what)
•    Examples: Audio Processing, CODECS, Cloud-Based Multi-Line Phones, and Remotes, Webcasts & Livestreams

IT’s influence on Radio broadcasters is strong, and awareness of hardware virtualization and the “glass cockpit” is growing fast

In this presentation, we’ll look at what you can do today, and where things may go in the future, exploring the ways broadcasters can reap operational and monetary gains from IT’s R&D investment.
