Satellite interference has been a talking point in the broadcasting and satellite industry for several years now. During this time, there have been innovations, advancements and initiatives. Sectors across the industry are working on technologies to counter interference, many of which are available for use right now. This panel will discuss developments, what is available to the broadcaster, the effect this is having and what else can be done. Real life examples will be given from technology providers and broadcasters. The panel will include; Nigel Fry, Head of Distribution, BBC World Service Group. Michael Downey, CTO, Glowlink Communications Technology. Roger Franklin, CEO, Crystal. Bob Potter, VP Signals and Ground Systems, Kratos Communications. “Almost everyone watching TV in the world is dependent upon satellite services either directly or indirectly for the channels they watch, be they domestic or international,” commented Martin Coleman, Executive Director, IRG “We now need to get broadcasters up-to-date on the technologies available and those to come and cast a wary eye on the future.” The panel is set to take place on Wednesday 26th April at 15:00.
