The Oracle Newsletter – January 2016

Oracle Newsletter

happy_new_year2016Welcome to the first edition of the Oracle for 2016 and as January draws to a close we hope that you’ve all enjoyed a successful start to the New Year.

No sooner does a new year commence than all eyes turn to the annual NAB Show in Las Vegas. This year we’re looking forward to some great new product releases from many of our partner suppliers exhibiting at the show. For Nautel clients attending NAB, we encourage you to register for the annual Nautel Users Group (NUG) meeting being held on Sunday 17th April at the Flamingo Hotel (registration information a little later in the newsletter). There’s no cost involved and it’s a great opportunity to interact directly with the Nautel design team and broadcasters from around the world. Following on from the show, Nautel are once again extending an invitation for post-NAB training at their Halifax factory. This is a 3 day course conducted by Nautel technicians and design engineers to provide both practical and theoretical training. The training is free of charge however participants need to organise their own travel arrangements. If anyone is interested in more information about the NUG meeting or post-NAB training, please let us know.

We look forward to working with you throughout 2016 and in the meantime, happy broadcasting!

Sonifex proud supporters of the 2016 Scout Jamboree

Earlier in January we were lucky enough to sponsor the 2016 Scout Jamboree. Held at Cataract Scout Park, this year Sonifex provided a Nautel VS300 FM transmitter and an Orban 5500 audio processor so the Scouts could transmit their very own radio station – JNNFM 90.1.

Our Technical Manager Don Coyle went down to spend some time at the event and was presented with this certificate of appreciation for our sponsorship.

Nautel NVLT Series 4.3.4 software is an important maintenance release which resolves an intermittent issue that could prevent an exciter from initializing, resulting in extended off-air time after a reboot.

This update is only required for NVLT transmitters configured with dual exciters.

Software Upgrade procedures for both series can be found in the Non-Standard Maintenance section of your Operations and Maintenance Manual.
