Gossip from my friendly neighborhood FM guy

Postby aclawson » Sun Oct 12, 2014 5:05 pm

I am told that

1. New buildings do not get ANY modulated equipment - all new construction is now being wired with either composite or HDMI

2. Existing buildings are currently being added to the list for a complete retrofit/upgrade, reusing existing wiring in some cases, completely new wiring everywhere else. All modulated equipment to be pulled out and replaced with modern stuff.

Hasta la pasta modulators! Finally, no more needing to maintain 25 year old VCRs!

(This will be slow to implement - my stake center is tentatively slated for the 5-8 year timeframe.)

Anybody know how they're going to handle deciding which language stream they want in which room?

I want to know how they plan on handing multiple languages in one room - such as ASL or using the translation headsets.

sorry to light up an old thread, but curious to see if anyone has actually seen these upgrades get started and how to find out if a building is scheduled for the upgrade

The audio/video system in our building was recently updated including the annoying white noise generators outside each bishops office.
Several rooms now have flat screen monitors mounted so no longer necessary to push around screens on carts.
Also some time ago the HVAC thermostats were replaced with 'smart' thermostats which can be controlled via a smartphone app.
