Bob Orban Presents: “Maintaining Audio Quality in the Broadcast Facility”

Achieving excellent on-air and on-line quality audio is more important than ever because of the intensely competitive nature of available media. “Good enough” no longer works. Persuading audiences to listen and then return requires attention to quality at every stage of the production process, from program sources to audio processing. This presentation will help attendees achieve quality on-air and on-line audio broadcasting and netcasting goals.

Join Chapter 36 at either of two dates and times:

  • June 9th, Tuesday, 7:00 PM PDT, with Chapter 47 Los Angeles
  • June 24, Wednesday, 12:00 noon PDT, with Chapter 9 Phoenix

Send a request for either meeting to mailto:RSVP@SBE36.ORG. You will receive an e-mail two business days prior to the event with a GoToMeeting password. The presentation is open to members and interested guests.

You are eligible to receive the usual 0.5 SBE certification points for your attendance.
