About the Presentation
Broadcast Supply Worldwide (BSW) from Tacoma WA, Orban Labs and Insoft LLC will combine forces to present at our next meeting.  Representing BSW will be John Lynch, Director of Business Development who is marking his 27th anniversary at BSW this month, after 20 years in Radio and Television.

Representing Orban Labs and presenting new technology for AM processing developed by the legendary Bob Orban, will be Vice President and longtime engineer, Mike Pappas.  Mike’s career in engineering  included field work for ABC Sports and CBS Sports on events such as Monday Night Football, The Masters,  and the Indianapolis 500.  Mike also was group engineer for several public radio stations in Colorado.

Mike will present in person, the development and technology behind the new Orban XPN-AM-ND processor for AM Radio.  He and John Lynch will have just arrived from an installation in the Philadelphia market.  This new processor is a “game changer” for AM stations both from an audio performance standpoint, and energy savings. https://www.bswusa.com/Broadcast-On-Air-Processing-Orban-XPN-AM-ND-P14238.aspx

Also appearing at the meeting, via SKYPE, will be Alex Bonello.  He is President of Insoft LLC and a longtime broadcast engineer.  Insoft LLC developed the BSW exclusive Visual Radio system known as HDV-Mixer that is generating new audience and new revenues for radio stations, College Athletic Departments, racing series, churches and others.  https://www.bswusa.com/VIdeo-Software-HDVmixer-Small-Video-Package-P12279.aspx
