SBE announces new specialist certification exam subject

May 10, 2005

The SBE National Certification Committee has announced that 8-VSB will be the subject of the next SBE Specialist Certification.

8-VSB’s ongoing progress in digital television and the importance of identifying qualified broadcast engineers who are critical to its implementation were reasons for the selection.

David Carr, CPBE, is leading a subcommittee to create this Specialist Certification. Carr is a former chairman of the SBE National Certification Committee. He is also the director of engineering for Telemundo Arizona and has been involved with the group's transition to digital transmission.

The SBE National Certification Committee expects to have this level of Certification ready by mid-October.
