Now this is some serious Satellite Uplink training!

The SBE has partnered with the NAB in offering the long running Satellite Uplink Operators Workshop. This 4 day intensive course, held annually at the NAB headquarters in Washington, DC, provides in-depth information on the theory of satellite communications and all operational aspects of the ground equipment for uplink and downlink facilities. It is applicable to distributing signals for both analog and digital television and radio. Because it is useful for satellite operators to have a basic understanding of all parts of the broadcast system, this seminar provides significant background information on digital television (DTV) and, in particular, high definition television (HDTV), which has increasing importance through all parts of the broadcast television chain, from production to distribution to the home. This workshop takes place September 30-October 3, 2013. Click here for more information.
