LONDON and Douglas, Isle of Man - The Global VSAT Forum (GVF) and the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) today announced they will be jointly hosting a series of sessions, courtesy of SES, at IBC.
If you are involved with Satellite Transmissions, RF Systems, Uplinking and Satellite News Gathering then these sessions are for you! With the theme, Safeguarding Your Transmission Operation, these sessions will offer practical advice to broadcasters, operators, and manufacturers alike. The sessions are aimed at educating participants, as well as answering a number of important questions, such as: “What are we trying to fix?”; “How do I, as a Broadcaster, Safeguard my Transmission Operation?”; “Why and what does any Uplinker need to do?”, as well as any other questions presented by the audience. Learn how industry associations are working together on a suite of initiatives to support the broadcast community, including spectrum reliability, uplink operator skills and productivity, equipment certifications, quality accreditations and certifications, and access predictability.
“We are pleased to be hosting these sessions with IRG,” commented David Hartshorn, Secretary General, the Global VSAT Forum. “We are finding, both from within our membership and elsewhere across the industry, that companies are striving to instill best practices across their operations, ensuring they can reduce errors and enjoy uninterrupted service. In order to achieve that, many need practical advice such as these sessions are offering.”
“Having made a great deal of progress with the various initiatives over recent months, we now need to work with satellite users to ensure they have the proper tools to help them roll-out those initiatives and technologies across their operations,” commented Martin Coleman, Executive Director, the Satellite Interference Reduction Group. “ We hope these sessions will go some way to starting that education programme and give attendees the knowledge and understanding they need to safeguard their operations, whichever part of the industry they are from.”
The sessions take place in the SES Balcony Suite, Hall1, BM10/11 on:
Sunday, 14th September from 12pm – 12:45pm and
Monday, 15th September from 3pm – 5pm.
