Low-power TV stations serving niches could cede airwaves to Wi-Fi

Low-power TV stations serving niches could cede airwaves to Wi-Fi | Broadcast Engineering Curator | Scoop.it
Caught in the middle are people like Keith Leitch, a longtime broadcast engineer who runs KKPM-TV, which broadcasts a variety of religious and secular programming from Santa Rosa, and viewers like Denise Mills of Oroville (Butte County), who tunes in regularly to the free, over-the-air programs KKPM broadcasts. The Internet and television industries are grappling over how portions of unused spectrum, commonly dubbed “white space,” should be put to use in the wake of a seismic upheaval of the TV spectrum landscape. At stake, broadcasters and their advocates say, is the future of low-power television, a class of TV operators who beam a wide variety of religious, ethnically diverse and hyper-local programming over the air. [...] setting themselves against the prospect of faster, more reliable Wi-Fi service, experts say, will be a steep uphill fight. To sate the country’s appetite for mobile bandwidth, the commission is giving TV broadcasters incentives to sell their broadcasting rights to spectrum-hungry companies like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile. “In the game of spectrum musical chairs, they’re afraid that when the music stops, there might not be a chair left for one or more (low-power) stations,” said Michael Calabrese, the director of the Wireless Future Project at the Open Technology Institute, a civic enterprise think tank. Both companies have petitioned the FCC to set aside a dedicated block of spectrum in each broadcast market after the auction ends that won’t be controlled by a single company and can be solely for Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies. The National Association of Broadcasters, a powerful trade and lobbying group, has taken to calling the proposal “Google channels.” In a Jan. 6 blog post, Alison Neplokh, vice president of spectrum policy, wrote that the Google channel proposal is really about turning away existing (low-power) stations to make room for … Dennis Wharton, a spokesman for the association, said that the organization doesn’t want to stand in the way of improving the nation’s Wi-Fi, “but if it comes at the expense of hundreds of thousands of people not being able to access free, local broadcast channels, that’s where we have an issue.” Authorized by the government in the early 1980s, low-power stations are intended to serve rural communities and minorities in urban areas. In addition to local news and information, programming can include anything from ethnic cooking shows to religious services. The FCC declined to comment on a pending proceeding, but on its website, it says that the spectrum in question “represents a valuable opportunity for our changing wireless mobile landscape,” which may hint at how the agency will rule on the matter. Reserving vacant channels for wireless Internet would help to expand access to rural areas where connections aren’t readily available, Calabrese said. “The spectrum will be very useful to the emerging Internet of Things as well, which is why high-tech companies such as Microsoft, Google and others support it,” he said. [...] the spectrum auction ends — it is continuing, and the FCC has not provided a clear timeline for when it will end — there is little for either side of the debate to do but wait and see. Michael Gravino, the director of the LPTV Spectrum Rights Coalition, expects the incoming Republican administration to move to protect the rights of broadcasters.

Surge Protectors vs. UPS: Do You Really Need a Battery Backup for Your PC? | Broadcast Engineering Curator | Scoop.it
Most PC users understand that a power surge, blackout, or other sudden loss of electricity has the capacity to seriously hurt your computer. But exactly what one should do to protect against it gets a little fuzzier. The two most common means of protection are a standard surge protector, sometimes (wrongly) called a power strip, or an uninterruptible power supply, usually shortened to UPS.
