Due to COVID-19, our meeting will be held virtually. 

Please Register in advance for this meeting using Zoom.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. To learn about Zoom, please see this tutorial.

We typically open the meeting 30 minutes prior to the scheduled meeting time to give everyone time to mingle and visit, begin Chapter 37 business at the scheduled meeting time, and introduce our guest speaker shortly thereafter. 

To save valuable time when we have large attendance, we have omitted the opportunity for attendees to introduce themselves.  (Sorry, it just takes too long.)  Instead, please feel free to add your affiliation to your name in Zoom and say "Hello" via Zoom's chat function. 

Please note that Chapter 37 meetings are being recorded.  If you prefer not being recorded, please disable your camera and mute your audio.

Audio Processing for Streaming & OTA Broadcast

Mike Pappas

Guest Speaker: Mike Pappas

Mike Pappas of Orban Labs, Inc. will discuss some best practices for audio processing for online and over-the-air broadcasting, with specific focus on the OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise ecosystem.

OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise is an easy-to-use, customizable Linux-based processing platform for multiple broadcast stations or streaming services, with centralized control. It provides Orban’s proprietary OptiCloud™ processing for up to 8 FM and 8 HD/DAB+/Streaming processing channels in a 1 RU package, using an enterprise-class SoftGear™ server and the appropriate OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise Nodes.

Mike’s technical experience spans several decades, including roles in broadcast engineering, government communications, and railway communications. Mike joined DaySequerra in 2015 as VP of Business Development and has assisted this forward-thinking and progressive company in the development of new products, new markets and new business opportunities. In 2016, DaySequerra acquired Orban Labs, Inc., one of the broadcast industry’s best-known names in audio processing. Mike has been heavily involved in Orban Labs since the acquisition, helping to steer the development and market opportunities for a dozen new products. He has installed all of Orban’s beta sites for the new XPN-AM audio processor, and has developed specialized field testing methodology for MDCL operations at different AMC levels. Mike is proud to be part of this revitalization of Orban as it again leads the way in audio processing for radio, TV and Internet streaming.

Special thanks to sponsor Jim Peck of SCMS for sponsoring the video conference and other technical support costs of Chapter 37.  We look forward to (virtually) seeing you soon!
