January 18 Meeting: NextGen TV and Advanced Emergency Alerting

I think most of you would agree that with all the technology we come in contact with daily, we could collectively do a better job of alerting each other of imminent dangers and solutions to those dangers. If you can transmit a couple of dozen TV channels simultaneously, and they come and go dynamically, what do you do about EAS? What about broadcast data that isn’t video?

SBE and NextGen leader Fred Baumgartner will give an online talk about the future of broadcast alerts. Join us Wednesday, January 18th at 11:30 PST via Zoom. Register in advance for this meeting at:

Fred Baumgartner retired this month from his job as Director of Sinclair Broadcast’s ONE Media NextGen TV Implementation that started in 2017. He’s been a long-time SBE leader within the SBE community associated with educational projects like the annual SBE learning sessions at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. In San Diego, he helped lead the Qualcomm MediaFLO experiment from 2005–2010.
