“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.”

IP Audio Networking-Forward Thinking Audio Routing for Broadcast Production

George Horton, vice president Western Region, will present on Solid State Logic’s implementation of AoIP. Audio-over-IP solutions are now in regular use around the world and in a wide range of critical applications. The installed sound market has been relying on IP transport for many years already, and now many broadcasters are implementing facility-wide AoIP technologies. This SBE presentation will cover how we are have reached the current technologies and how they are evolving. He will cover the current alphabet soup of acronyms and standards and finish up with a real word example of the technology in use. It is hoped that a demo truck will be present in Eugene for the Chapter meeting on the 14th. Originally hailing from Oxford England, the home town of Sold State Logic, George Horton has been with SSL for 30 years. His experience ranges from building consoles to testing, servicing, installing, training, and now the commercial aspects in the Western United States. You do not have to be a member of, or be certified by, SBE to attend the lunch meetings.
