    NAB Radio Show Session Examines AM Tower Revenue Opportunities
    Washington, DC - Sep 3, 2008 - The NAB Radio Show will include a session discussing the technical and legal regulations broadcasters need to know when renting AM tower space. Garrison Cavell, president of Cavell Mertz and Associates, and Erwin Krasnow, chairman of the Communications and Technology Group at Garvey Schubert Barer, will lead the discussion on Sept. 17 in Austin, TX.

    Titled Renting AM Towers to Non-Broadcasters - Practical Tips for Managers and Engineers, the session will examine how the growth of mobile communications technologies has led to a worldwide demand for tower space, creating additional revenue opportunities for radio stations. During the session, managers and engineers will learn how to prepare their stations for shared tower use, as presenters Cavell and Krasnow discuss the technical and legal issues broadcasters need to know before renting out their AM tower space.

    Broadcast Electronics Audio Vault X
    Studio automation platform
    Booth 301
    Audio Vault X is a new studio platform with more capacity and flexibility for adding and personalizing format channels on the Internet or over the air. New capabilities enable broadcasters to do more with less. Audio Vault X handles complex segues, such as inserting donut tracks in the middle of a song, station ID or weathercast. It can even do double donuts -- that is, drop in a voice or other segment in the middle of a song or jingle twice. Plus, talent can manipulate fades, audio levels and other characteristics of segues. Personalized studio mashups combine studio tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace. The Audio Vault X multi-thread engine enables talent in separate studios to work collectively off the same log, in real-time. BE's Audio Vault X is a complete digital media system for live-assist or satellite operation. The new platform offers on-air studio operation as well as a full suite of scheduling and production modules for multi-track editing, music rotation and ad insertion.
