What:

Mark Johnson, the Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, LinkUp Communications.

“Solutions That Allow You & Your Organization to Benefit From the New FCC Studio Ruling”.

 

Mark’s brief talk will specifically focus on the new change in FCC regulations regarding local studios and the technology that will allow broadcasters to take full advantage of this new opportunity. A satellite broadcast engineer for decades, Mark is uniquely qualified to speak on this subject as an expert in the field of content distribution and integration.

 

There is a quick informational update on the FCC 5G proposal and it’s impact on C-band satellite delivery that he will share at the end of our discussion.

 

Mark has designed and installed multiple systems for non-commercial broadcasters, who have for years taken advantage of technical solutions to distribute their programing across multiple regions to their audiences while keeping a local feel to their programing.

 

Mark Johnson CSRE, a well-known leader in the broadcast transmission industry for over three decades, has been the “go to” guy for other audio and video content providers for years, including NPR Satellite Services and Ka You Communications. Though Mark graduated from Florida State University in the 1980’s, his real training began as an assistant to the Chief Engineer of WTNT AM/FM in Tallahassee, Florida and a broadcast producer for the Seminole Sports Network. Over the years Mark has continued his training through Harris Transmitter School (FM and FM25K), and is Global VSAT Advanced Certified.

 

 

You do not have to be a member of, or be certified by, SBE to attend the lunch meetings.

But we would appreciate it if you were to join.  Membership has its benefits.

The same program will be presented at Chapter 76 in Eugene on the 18th, and at Chapter 141 in Medford on the 19th.
