IRG has had a very busy few months and have lots of news to share. As always, we’ve had a presence at many of the industry’s biggest shows and have also welcomed a new member to the fold! Here’s what we’ve been up to.
IRG Annual Workshop
Preparation is well underway for the IRG Annual Workshop to be held on the 25th and 26th of October at the Brighton Harbour Hotel.
The workshop will be an excellent opportunity to hear from leading industry experts about satellite interference, including the latest initiatives and practical solutions.
Keynote topics will include:
- Carrier ID and how the FCC regulations will affect broadcasters.
- VSAT interference – have new tools had the desired effect?
- The future of big data and machine learning.
We are also undertaking a series of blog posts in the run up to the event all about our excellent workshop speakers. Our first post is about Plum Consulting and can be read here.
For more information or to register to attend, please head to our website. We are also able to organise accommodation for those of you who wish to book through us. Please contact us on email@example.com.

NAB Las Vegas 2017
In April, our very own Executive Director, Martin Coleman, headed to NAB Las Vegas. Once again, the exhibition was a hive of activity, and a great venue for networking and to sample the latest industry innovations.
Whilst he was there, Martin moderated a panel titled ‘Is Technology Actually Solving Interference for the Broadcaster’, alongside Nigel Fry (BBC), Roger Franklin (Crystal), Michael Downey (Glowlink) & Bob Potter (Kratos). To read a recent IRG article on the topic featuring contributions from the panelists, click here.
Martin was also interviewed by InBroadcast, offering his perspective on the state of interference for the broadcaster. A video of this can be found here.
May also meant a trip to Singapore was in order, for the CommunicAsia show.
As always, it was a busy week but also a great opportunity to catch-up up with IRG members and their latest activities.
Our CommunicAsia Interference Tour was once again a success and we would like to extend a huge thank you to those who were involved!
