The HD Technology Update e-newsletter did an interview with technology consultant S. Merrill Weiss on the occasion of the upcoming well-deserved NAB 2006 Television Engineering Achievement Award. It makes for interesting reading, including the following: "... What will happen to the spectrum in the political process? I’m not in possession of such a good crystal ball that I can divine that. Broadcasters, however, need to think about their businesses as bifurcated. It used to be that owning a broadcast license was a license to deliver content, and that was the only way to get that content to consumers. ..." The first part of the interview was published early this month as 'Way-out-of-the-box thinking’ may be critical to success of broadcasters. Link: BroadcastEngineering. The second part of the interview came out last weeek as Make the most of the '20MB/s pipe' today, or face uncertainty tomorrow. Link: BroadcastEngineering.
