Subject: From Pocket Protectors to Packet Sniffers – IP in Broadcasting

Over the past forty years, the world of radio and television broadcasting has changed from analog, to serial digital, to IP. We used to carry a “greenie” as our primary tool and the only “password” required was knowing how to operate the rack tray cover locks. Times have changed, and now we’re working with signals that are carried on copper or fiber optic cables and function at blazing speeds. Come join us for a bit of a trip back and a look forward on what we might be able to expect in the future as the industry transitions yet again, this time from serial digital to IP conveyance of video signals.

John Schilberg is the Central Region Sales Manager for Salt Lake City-based equipment manufacturer Utah Scientific, Inc. Originally from Wisconsin, John has worked in television engineering at stations in Montana, Texas and Oklahoma, and in broadcast equipment sales with vendors and manufacturers including Masstech and Dejero. John is based in the Dallas, Texas area and has been with Utah Scientific since March 2018.
