October 2015 Guest Speaker: Gary Liebisch, Nautel Limited

Meeting at iHeart Media - Richmond

Gary Liebisch will discuss Nautel HD Multiplex, a technology that enables up to 15 audio streams within 600 kHz of FM bandwidth. The technology allows the combination of multiple, independent IBOC exgine modulators into a single crest factor reduction engine, permitting multiple IBOC stations to be amplified and broadcast with a single transmitter and antenna. The all-digital configuration maintains backward compatibility with existing receivers. Gary participated in Nautel's demonstration of a working HD Multiplex prototype at NAB 2015. He'll discuss the demonstration along with some of the exciting opportunities that this technology might create for broadcasters.  Nautel is interested in our industry's feedback, which will determine the appropriate path for further development of the technology and possible pursuit of regulatory approvals.
