89.3 KPCC-FM Boosts Signal Coverage

PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Public Radio (SCPR) station 89.3 KPCC-FM has added a signal booster to improve its coverage of the west side of Los Angeles. Listeners west of the 405 Freeway, including those in Santa Monica, Pacific Palisades, Sawtelle, and Brentwood, should now experience a stronger signal with less static interference from other stations on the same or adjacent radio frequencies.

The project began nearly two years ago in an effort to enhance the 89.3 KPCC-FM listening experience for their west side audience, who live and work in that area.  The signal improvement will also benefit commuters who cross the Sepulveda Pass and travel along Pacific Coast Highway between Santa Monica and Malibu.

The state-of-the-art engineering required to boost the signal was a joint effort of the 89.3 KPCC staff and talent from National Public Radio Labs. Doug Johnson, SCPR vice president operations, noted, "Our engineering staff insists on premium sound quality and continuously strives to make improvements. We expect to apply the advances we gained on the Westside to improve our signal for listeners in other parts of the Los Angeles area."

According to Bill Davis, chief executive officer, "This important project was funded by a gift from members of our Board of Trustees.  As the most listened-to public radio news service in Southern California, we have a responsibility to provide the best possible service to our listeners.  Our board and membership help make this all possible."

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
