            Alex Salazer (International Business Machines, IBM)
                                  -on-
          Broadcast Television moving from tape to Linux servers

      IBM's Alex Salazer will give a business-centric talk about the
      current impact of Linux on the Broadcast Television industry, and
      what the future holds in terms of Linux adoption.

      Television has traditionally been a tape based medium, for they are
      the de-facto standard for archival, broadcast, and transfer. For
      many reasons, it is estimated that Broadcast Television technology
      is 5 years behind the current pace of technological adoption. Yet
      thanks to Linux and Linux based solutions, the Television industry
      is finally able to chuck out their tapes and rapidly replace them
      with Linux servers.

      Linux already has a growing share of usage on television set-top
      devices, yet it is poised to play a pivotal role in the mass
      redistribution, storage, and broadcast of content world wide. Media
      organizations of all types and sizes will be enabled to centralize
      countless hours of footage, and beam it around the world to your
      television with the push of a simple button.

      New York City is the largest television market in the world and
      the second largest industry behind financial services.  Join us to
      learn how your skills are pertinent in NY's television broadcast
      industry.

  Swag (Give Away) - During the meeting... unusually terrific swag of
      non-predetermined origin will be given out to all attendees at the
      regular meeting for free as usual.

  Stammtisch
      After the meeting ... Join us around 8:30pm or so at TGI Friday's,
      located at 677 Lexington Avenue and 56th Street, second floor.
      Northeast corner.
