WOW !!

Hats off to CCBE for the “IP Networking Technology for Broadcast Engineers” workshop at their 2015 annual conference.

The CCBE has established a relationship with the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), and arranged an all-day workshop seminar. The seminar was presented by Mr. Wayne M. Pecena, of Texas A&M University and sanctioned by the SBE. As recognition of their presence and to complement their career development, all attendees received a certificate. The course also prepared attendees to apply to the SBE to take the CBNE – Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer exam, an important career credential for all those currently working in the rapidly changing field of broadcast technology.

Mr. Pecena gave a most enlightening, and easy-to-understand description of the technology behind TCP/IP Networking, and how it all comes together to allow world-wide communications over the public Internet and private WAN/VPN networks. If you wish to get a handle on this technology and understand what is going on when your computer connects to a remote device, system, or broadcast site, over private and public networks, the complete presentation is available at the link below.

Mr. Pecena has graciously accepted that we publish the download link on our site, and share it with all who are interested. We invite you to do the same.

Final preparation for the spring NAB Show

Published by Davicom on March 31 2015


The annual NAB mega show starts in a bit less than 2 weeks and we’re pretty much all ready. The crates of show-stuff are on their way and we’re ironing out the final details of our first Davicom Exchange forum, or the DEX as we’ve come to call it. We hope this breakfast on Tuesday morning will turn into an annual must-attend event for all our customers and fans who attend the NAB show.

Speaking of the NAB, I’ve always wondered if it was the 2nd biggest show in Vegas after the CES. Well, it turns out that it’s the 3rd biggest. Here is a table of the data from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority web site. It lists the top-10 shows by number of attendees:

  1.  International CES 2016: 163000
  2. Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW) 2015: 140000
  3. National Association of Broadcasters 2015: 98000
  4. Las Vegas Market – Summer 2015: 50000
  5. Las Vegas Market – Winter 2016: 50000
  6. World of Concrete 2016: 48000
  7. ASD Las Vegas – August 2015: 44000
  8. 2015 Pack Expo Las Vegas: 43000
  9. Super Mobility Week: 40000
  10. Nightclub and Bar Show 2016: 39000

I wonder what the booths look like at the Nightclub and Bar Show? 
