Technorama 2016 conference details announced

Technorama 2016 will be held over the weekend of 22-24 July 2016, in Campbelltown to the west of Sydney.   

The community broadcasting sector’s Technologist conference is about bringing technologists together, and supporting their efforts.  

Technorama events bring together broadcast engineering and management representatives from community stations across regional and metropolitan Australia, and feature special guests and professional contributions.  At the core of the weekend is informality and low price-point.  The ease with which community broadcasters may rub shoulders with their peers and  representatives from commercial industry allows them to share experiences, learn, and take home knowledge that benefits their stations and the sector.

The Technorama Conference program focuses on technology drivers and best practice in community radio, and provides an overview of technical and regulatory issues impacting Community stations in the digital era.

“The location is a one-train ride from Sydney airport, has plenty of space, plenty of accommodation near by, is easy to get to by car from places close enough to drive, and has a community radio station on-site,” say the organisers.

Technorama was created in 2009 by a team of passionate technologists who had been appointed as founding members of the CBAA’s Technical Standing Committee. All the team members are committed technologists with extensive personal involvement in community broadcasting.

Since inception of the concept, six Technorama conferences have been delivered in Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Sydney.

Technorama will offer participants topical discussions and hands-on practical sessions showcasing some of the latest broadcasting equipment and techniques, thanks to close cooperation from participating members.
