Our thanks to Matt Leland, Director of Sales at Burk Technology
for his presentation
Best Practices for Modern Transmitter Remote Control

IP based transmitter remote control is providing busy broadcast engineers with much needed relief in the form of better data, more granular alarm notifications and armchair access to multiple transmitter sites.
Environmental monitoring and flowchart based automatic control functions increase up-time and protect equipment from extremes, while distributed I/O provides cost savings by eliminating long multi-conductor wiring runs.
This presentation covered best practices for specifying, installing and configuring a remote control system, with special attention paid to efficiently upgrading legacy systems to IP. Simplified automatic procedures for testing of backup equipment were also covered using active flowcharts

The crowd enjoyed dinner at 6 provided by our speaker followed by his Presentation at 7pm at Gilligans

At the June Chapter 67 meeting on Thursday June 29th 2017
John J. Humphrey, Vice President, Business Development at HITACHI Kokusai Electronics America
Presented a very informative and educational discussion on

Ultra HD/4K and High Dynamic Range

We met at Gilligan’s Bar & Grill 400 E. Abrams St. Arlington, TX 76010 Hitachi provided Dinner at 6pm and the presentation at 7pm.

While HDR is most commonly promoted with UHD/4K workflow and cameras, a growing number of organizations, including the EBU and Ericsson, are now advocating the use of HDR with HDTV.
John Humphrey is well known in the TV industry from his experience with several major TV system integrators, TV stations, and mobile production companies. At NAB John ran three educational sessions for HITACHI on HDR for HDTV:
NAB’s Broadcast Engineering and IT Conference, PBS’s TechCon conference and Educational workshops at the HITACHI booth

(Above) Illustration from John Humphrey’s presentation: SDR image at left, HDR simulation at right. UHD/4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) are usually mentioned together, but HDTV can also benefit from HDR because most people sit too far from their TVs to see the full resolution of UHD/4K.
A properly set up 1080p image with HDR will look better than a UHD image with Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) at typical viewing distances.
John also covered HDR format compatibility with existing SDR TVs and how viewer experiences can be enhanced with different HDR standards.

John explained the reasons that High Dynamic Range (HDR) is not limited to Ultra HD. HD-HDR can be delivered in a compatible Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) to both legacy SDR and 4K HDR TV sets. It recovers detail from dark shadows or bright areas and offers a more realistic picture. The HD signal will pass through nearly all the bandwidth and data rate issues that have slowed the adoption of UHD/4K.
HD-HDR can be delivered by satellite and OTT providers and will be upconverted at the consumer’s UHD TV. If HLG is used; no metadata is needed. For PQ, metadata will trigger HDR processing in the upconverted picture.

The Z-HD5500 joins the line of Hitachi HD and Ultra HD camera systems offering High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities, enabling video productions with increased contrast, rich colors and enhanced lighting reproduction. Click on image for a demo.

John Humphrey is Vice President, Business Development at Hitachi Kokusai Electric America. He has spent his life in radio and television working in maintenance, operations and as Chief Engineer at multiple broadcast stations and production houses. He has designed, built and operated mobile production trucks as Engineer in Charge.
His experience includes sales and business development at dealers, manufacturers and system integrators. During the last three decades in equipment and system sales, he has developed a deep knowledge of the business and technology. John is a life-certified SBE CPBE and a SMPTE Section Manager.
His presentation is on Emerging Video Technologies. Specifically, High Dynamic Range for HDTV.
The technical (non-sales) presentation will include:

Why HDR and What is HDR?
HDR Standards for UHD and HD
History of Standard Dynamic Range
TV Screen Brightness
Transfer Curves
Hitachi’s Implementation of HDR for HDTV
Simulation comparing SDR and HDR
Compatibility with SDR
Consumer adoption of 4K HDR TVs


At the May 2017 Meeting on the 25th, Broadcast Supply Worldwide and INSOFT LLC introduced the new HDV Mixer.

Would it be possible to steal a couple of minutes to talk about my current project. The Texas Museum of Broadcasting & Communications
We actually have a building, and I’m in the process of getting it up to current code standards. This has turned into a bigger project than I imagined.
I need help, both financially (no surprise) and in labor and expertise. We are also looking for equipment donations. WFAA has been particularly helpful. Maybe other DFW broadcasters would be interested as well.
“After more than 30 years of collecting vintage broadcast equipment and memorabilia, we are searching for ways to share some of these broadcasting memories with the general public. Although the web site will give you a good idea of some of the treasures on display, the best way to experience it is to pay us a visit in Kilgore, Texas. We plan to open to the public sometime in the late spring of 2016. We need your help!
The museum is funded entirely through donations, both in cash and in kind. When we move into our new building there will be a nominal admission charge, with special rates for students and seniors.
We are an IRS recognized 501[c][3] not for profit Public Charity. As such all donations are deductible to the full extent of the IRS Code.”
