📻 Rob is Analog 📻 ALFF Audience Favorite Award
Available Light Film Festival 2022 Audience Choice Winners
The winner of the ALFF Audience Choice Award for Best Canadian Documentary, Rob Is Analog, was also the audience favorite overall. Yukon filmmaker, Jessica Hall’s funny and charming documentary about “Radio Rob” Hopkins: a ramshackle communications pirate who pioneered community radio in Southern Yukon and fights for the public’s right to over-the-air analog community tv, drew the third largest combined in-person and online attendance.

RFP for OpenBroadcaster Multimedia API development
Currently OpenBroadcaster has support to display and publish assets with Drupal 7.0 for dynamically created website content, schedules, whats playing, what played last 24 hours, etc. Our goal with this project is to phase out support for proprietary modules for each type of CMS, instead provide some simple generic embedded API code to paste that radio and TV stations public web site easily to be able to deploy as templates.
Budget $3,500.00 USD
Case Study – Arichat TV CAP Video Alerting
TV TELILE is a unique community television station in Nova Scotia that needed an emergency alerting system. They are found on Channel 10 using an antenna, Channel 4 on the EastLink cable system in western Richmond County, and on Channel 5 on the Seaside cable system. As required by CRTC, Telile must carry the national emergency alert feed from Pelmorex and raised funds to purchase a solution. There are many expensive proprietary systems on the market that were out of reach, instead they investigated the cost saving benefits of using an open source approach.
Case Study – Virtual Legislative Broadcasting
Municipal and state legislatures need to operate remotely, securely and involve public participation from guest speakers. Our systems automatically record, archive and publish legislative broadcasting assemblies. Intelligence switches message when In-Camera and senses audio silence and gaps, combining into a neat time stamped single audio archive podcast.
