“Leadership in Crisis: We Will Come Out Bitter or Better – It’s Your Choice!” with Jim Mathis, The Reinvention PRO

The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the best educations a leader can have, if they use this time to learn.. from their priorities, their reactions and their people’s dependency on them to stand up and take authority. These recent circumstances pose a golden opportunity for your staff and client to see leadership in you that builds confidence and security in uncertain times. When this is over, you will be positioned at the forefront of staff and client priorities and support in the world ahead. It will also allow more time to prioritize your “main thing” as people look to you when communities are fully back open for business.

“Broadcast RF Thermal Imaging Using Drones Webinar”with Paul Shulins

Paul will discuss the theory behind thermal imaging and the practical applications he has found useful to broadcasters by combining the advanced sensors to detect infrared electromagnetic radiation with UAS (drones). Recently this set of tools has begun to make possible the close inspection of broadcast transmission systems in ways that were not practical just a few years ago. By detecting undesired heat energy loss in these complex and sometimes inaccessible components, targeted remedies can be implemented efficiently to repair damage, or to prevent line or antenna deterioration from advancing.

After a couple of years in the glamorous business of broadcast equipment manufacturing, Shane returned to broadcast engineering full-time as a field engineer for Educational Media Foundation.

He has been involved in numerous studio construction projects using Audio over IP (AoIP). Topics include the importance of preplanning and layout of the equipment and networks, along with a good knowledge of AoIP, network wiring and switch configurations. Shane will offer basic techniques and tips to help your project go smoothly.
