MELVILLE, N.Y. -- March 18, 2015 -- The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) today announced that the call for papers is now open for the IEEE Broadcast Symposium, scheduled for Oct. 13-16 at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The deadline for submitting abstracts is April 10.

"The IEEE Broadcast Symposium is the second premier conference in our yearly calendar  the first being the IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting, coming up in June. Both of these conferences play a vital role in our society by enabling the exchange of new information and the formation of social networks," said William T. Hayes, director of engineering and technology, Iowa Public Television, and president of the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society. "The conferences would not be possible without the high caliber of presentations that are given by expert industry peers. We're looking forward to seeing a broad cross section of abstracts proposing topics of wide interest to our membership."

Authors are encouraged to submit extended abstracts, up to 1,000 words, proposing timely and relevant technical papers relating to broadcasting technology. Proposals for organizing session panels are also strongly encouraged. Typical topics of interest include digital radio and television systems; metadata systems and management; AES interoperability; advanced RF modulation technologies; interactive technologies; advanced audio technology and processing; mobile DTV systems for both transmission and reception; cellular broadcast technologies; streaming delivery of broadcast content; "second screen" technology and services; and transmission, propagation, reception, and redistribution of broadcast signals.

Authors may submit abstracts prior to April 10 by email to bts@ieee.org. The email should indicate that the abstract is for the 2015 IEEE Broadcast Symposium, along with the author's full name and contact information including affiliation, address, email, and phone number. Each submission enters the author in a drawing for a free registration to the Symposium.

Registration for the IEEE Broadcast Symposium opens in June. More information is available at bts.ieee.org.

Comelit - VIP Kit With Planux Monitor With WIFI/3G/4G Remote APP - 8512IM

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
