    Fiber Optical Transmission In Demand Of Higher Capacity.

    With the increasing high volume content over the internet, such as multimedia and high definition images, new transmission methods need to be found to handle the increasing data demand. Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp (NTT) have successfully demonstrated an ultra-high capacity optical transmission of 69.1 terabits per second over a single 240 km long optical fiber.

    Woohoo - why can't we get that in the USA? When? How much?

    Yep - and they'll continue to develop new Transmission Techniques while People watch TV and listen to the Radio - but Sound and Vision are exactly that - whether it's on a Strip of 35mm Film, Quarter Inch tape, a squigglely line on your Computer Screen, U Lead Video Utilities or Microsoft Movie Maker - and if you don't have a feel for Sound or moving Pictures you are not a Programme Maker. Fine Editing is a fine Art - and when you can add a Consonant to the beginning of a Recorded Comment to replace the one obliterated by the slamming Door or some mechanical Error you are a Sound Editor.

    I would get BBC News Room People ask me to help them mix their Programmes because I'd learnt something spending those Nights in the Studio.

    A good - well produced Radio Programme will make the Listener feel as if they are there. I interviewed a bunch of Tunnellers 200 ft below Bristol - in a Gap about 2 and a half Feet high, strewn with Rubble and Equipment and you are made to feel as if you're about to meet up with the Crew on the other side of the last few Feet of un-excavated Chasm. I could interveiw you right next to a pneumatic Drill and it would still be broadcastable - it's knowing what to do. The standard Kit for BBC Radio was the Mono Uher Report Monitor - very heavy but the record Quality was brilliant. Give this to Industry People now - with their myriad of Digital stuff and they'd probably bang Nails in with it. You'd get your Mono Recordings - book some Studio Time and get to work. When finished you have FM Stereo - that is like an Audio Picture of what the Programme is about. If I couldn't find a Sound Effect in the BBC Library I'd make one - and in the end - using a BBC Mark 3 or 4 Desk you could get the same Results as any 48 Track Music Studio or Computer Programme................and it all felt somehow more tangible too!

    Also, as explained quite eloquently by Computer Writers Bruce Sterling and Brian Clough (not the rather colourful former Notts Forest Manager) we are allowing so much of ourselves be governed by Computers what happens when or if it all goes wrong? This and the many other Sites - was started because People had Issues with their IT Equipment - probably not encountered with Radio. Even on the Reporter Level - if the Power Supply runs low on your Digital Equipment it shuts down and that's it - if the same happens with Tape or Film it slows up - but you still have a Recording you can varispeed in the Studio - so this Equipment Revolution has to be taken with a healthy amount of Scepticism.
