First International GatesAir Connect Event Planned at IBC2015
Educational customer networking event connects people and technology through an interactive learning approach
Cincinnati, OH, September 03, 2015
GatesAir, a global leader in wireless, over-the-air content delivery solutions for radio and TV broadcasters, will hold its second large-scale 2015 GatesAir Connect customer networking event in Amsterdam this month at IBC2015.
The event, to be held from 4-8pm (1600-2000 hrs) on Saturday, September 12th, will replicate the interactive approach introduced at the first GatesAir Connect event at the 2015 NAB Show last April. Customers will be given the same opportunity to engage with company technologists and the greater service organization, while enjoying a series of brief updates on trends shaping the present and future directions of over-the-air broadcasting.
“GatesAir Connect at NAB steered the focus away from lengthy, standard-fare dry lectures and toward a more meaningful interaction with industry thought leaders, both inside and outside GatesAir,” said Rich Redmond, chief product officer, GatesAir. “We remain focused on connecting people and technology through an energizing, problem-solving approach to the challenges TV and radio broadcasters and network operators face today.”
GatesAir Connect gives attendees an opportunity to reach beyond their primary sales representatives, and communicate with a larger group of company representatives and industry peers away from the exhibit floor noise. The agenda opens with a keynote from GatesAir CEO Phil Argyris focused on the business challenges of the international over-the-air broadcaster. Planned technology topics include advances in transmitter efficiency, leveraging IP connectivity in the RF plant, and future broadcast opportunities across ATSC 3.0, LTE broadcasting and other emerging over-the-air delivery platforms. The event will also include special insights on streamlining service and maintenance across transmitter networks to minimize long-term equipment and labor costs.
The event will be held onsite at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Center in Meeting Room G106B. Interested parties can e-mail Catherine.Poulsen@gatesair.com or visit the registration page here, where the full agenda is posted. An “Ask The Expert” cocktail reception will take place the final two hours of the event.
