Telos' Talbot Talks Telco Tech at NAB

White paper showcases real-world benefits, examples of VoIP in the broadcast studio

27 March, 2012, Cleveland Ohio, USA

Joe Talbot has seen it all in 30 years of broadcast engineering. Beginning with his first position as Chief Engineer in 1980 at KWIZ-FM in Santa Ana, California, and culminating as the Director of Engineering for ABC Radio's legendary KGO and KSFO in San Francisco, Joe has been "down in the trenches" of radio engineering and, specifically, broadcast telephony.

These days Joe is ecstatic about VoIP, and what it‘s doing for broadcasters. Engineers who know Joe are paying attention.

"The business world has been gung-ho on VoIP telephone systems since President Clinton was in office," says Talbot, who is now product manager for Telos. "Using VoIP has saved them big money on hardware, wiring and calling costs. In fact, it‘s been so effective and popular that it‘s hard to find a traditional PBX vendor! There‘s no reason broadcasters shouldn‘t make hay from this technology, too."

"I‘m calling my NAB white paper, "VoIP In The Real World: How I Quit Worrying And Learned To Live Without POTS."

During his presentation, Joe is showing five real-world examples of broadcasters using VoIP today, and highlights the lessons they've learned about installation, configuration and on-air use. Joe will also give examples of little-known VoIP usage secrets that will be invaluable for any station considering IP-based on-air phones.

Joe‘s presenting this paper at the Broadcast Engineering Conference of NAB 2012 on Monday, April 16, at 10:30 AM in Room S227 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
