Mile High City hosts 2012 SBE National Meeting

The 2012 National Meeting of the Society of Broadcast Engineers takes place October 23-24 at the Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport in Denver, Colo. The event is being held in conjunction with the Rocky Mountain Audio/Visual Expo and the SBE/SMPTE Broadcast Engineer’s Boot Camp. The local host is SBE Chapter 48 of Denver.

For more than 20 years, the Rocky Mountain Audio/Visual Expo has been a major regional event for video, audio, integration, AV and broadcast professionals. Attendees come primarily from the Rocky Mountain region and Great Plains states. The exhibit floor will be open both days. The expo also includes a number of keynote speakers, workshops and a free reception. The Crowne Plaza property includes a large meeting and convention center that enables the expo to feature in excess of 120 companies in more than 100 booths.

SBE Chapter 48, along with the Rocky Mountain Section of SMPTE, will present a half-day version of their popular Broadcast Engineer’s Boot Camp on Wednesday, October 24. The boot camp will include presentations on broadcast technology of interest to television and radio engineers and technicians.

Among the SBE National Meeting events is the Annual SBE Membership Meeting, which is scheduled to be streamed live via the Internet, and the annual SBE National Awards Reception and Dinner.
