Next Chapter 2 Meeting

Tuesday 17 January 2023

Happy New Year! Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 17th, at 1 PM at the WBRE studios 62 S Franklin street in Wilkes-Barre. This meeting will be hosted by Don Francis and the folks at Ross. Ted Tramoloni will be the presenter. Please RSVP to Al Kornak (al.kornak@comcast.net) so that he can get an idea of how much food Ross will need to provide.

The subject of the meeting will be "The Well-Equipped TD: Remote Production Switcher Panel/Frame Connectivity"

"Cloud" has become the latest buzzword sweeping the industry. Supporters of cloud services tout the benefits of replacing on-prem hardware with virtualized systems running on generic platforms housed in vast server farms...somewhere. But while cloud-based production does promise to one day reduce cost and complexity, the technology is still in its infancy and faces many developmental challenges. Meanwhile, many facilities, especially call-letter stations which already have a substantial inventory of on-prem hardware, have had to face the reality of remotely connecting existing control surfaces to hardware frames housed in a central tech core.

For this presentation, Tedd Tramaloni, North American Business Development Manager for Switchers and Severs at Ross Video, will use readily available, off-the-shelf resources to connect a local TouchDriveTM Control panel to a hardware frame housed in Ross Video's Ottawa demo facility. He will highlight some of the benefits and pitfalls of remote connectivity and discuss Engineering's role in addressing the needs of remote operators.
