SBE announces 8-VSB Specialist Certification Exam

The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) is offering a Specialist Certification in the 8-VSB modulation scheme. 8-VSB was chosen because of the “ongoing progress in digital television and the importance of identifying qualified broadcast engineers who are critical to its implementation.”

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. He previously oversaw the transition to digital at KHOU-TV in Houston, which was the first all-digital station in the country.

The SBE National Certification Committee expects to have this level of certification ready by mid-October, when SBE will hold its annual National Meeting in Dallas.

The first SBE Specialist Certification exams were administered during NAB2005 on the topic of maintaining AM directional antennas and will continue to be available.
