Training Focus
The course is aimed at those people working within broadcast industry and focused on the planning and regulation of audio and television broadcast networks. To be highly effective when conducting broadcast planning requires up-to date knowledge of latest trends and technologies. Detailed knowledge about the huge variety of planning functionalities is as important as information about the technologies themselves. This course will furnish planners with the skills they need for the complex tasks of modern broadcast planning in respect of coverage planning as well as in respect of considering coordination issues. The course uses a number of practical examples to illustrate the theory based on using LS telcom’s sophisticated broadcast planning tool.

Course Objectives
After completing this course, participants will have a thorough under- standing of the more complex functions needed in the planning process. Many examples will be used to give detailed information about handling the special cases which can occur. The main focus of the course is digital networks.

Intended for
This course is intended for those who have general knowledge of broadcast, who are interested in advanced broadcast planning and who may be employed in broadcasters, network operators or regulators.

Contents

  •     Broadcast introduction
  •     Wave propagation effects
  •     Propagation models basics
  •     Interference theory
