26 अगस्त 1950 को पहली बार लंबी दूरी का टीवी प्रसारण

1950 में 26 अगस्त के दिन पहली बार बीबीसी ने लंबी दूरी का टीवी प्रसारण किया गया। इसकी योजना बनाने मेँ दो महीने से भी अधिक का समय लगा था। दो घंटे का ये प्रसारण इंग्लिश चैनल के दूसरे छोर फ्रांस से किया गया। ये कार्यक्रम इंग्लैंड से फ्रांस तक भेजे गए दुनिया के पहले टेलीग्राम की शताब्दी मनाने के लिए किया गया था। इससे पहले सीधे प्रसारण का दायरा सिर्फ 40 किलोमीटर तक ही था। इस सीधे प्रसारण के लिए पांच छोटे रेडियो लिंक स्टेशन बनाए गए थे, ताकि वो सिग्नल को ग्रहण कर आगे प्रसारित कर सकें।

खास : - भारतीय बाजार में पहली बार 4K OLED टीवी लांन्च किया है। पिक्चर की स्पष्टता के मामले में यह सबसे आधुनिक तकनीक है।

Invited audience programme launching by AIR Mysuru Today!

All India Radio Mysuru, launching a new programme on 28.08.2018 at 6.30 pm in Shriranga Mandira, Rangayana premises... In collaboration with Rangayana Mysuru.. It's an invited audience programme,in which audience shall listen to half an hour Radio Play & followed by open discussion on that play & it includes tips on various aspects of radio & stage presentation...IT'S ONE YEAR PROJECT....

Top tips : Microphones

What's with mics?
Microphones are one of the main items in any radio studio. The microphone was invented before transmitters, receivers or recorders... what were they thinking?? 
Even if you have nothing else in the studio but a microphone, you can communicate to your listeners and generate compelling programs. And of course there are some things you should know to ensure you get the best out of the microphones in your studio. 
So here we go with John's Twelve Top Tips and Terms of Mics.
1. Pattern
All microphones have a pattern - that's the technical term that tells you in which directions the microphone will pick up sound. An Omnidirectional microphone picks up sound from all round. It doesn't matter if the microphone is pointing towards you or away from you, it will pick up the sound equally well. Directional microphones include "cardioid", a sort of flat heart shape; hypercardioid, which is much more directional; figure-of-eight, which picks up sound from the front and back but not from the sides. Most directional microphones are cardioid, and that's the most popular pattern in a studio.

Tip: omnidirectional microphones make better sense for handheld interview work. You might think that a directional mic would pick up less unwanted noise. True. But in an interview, you will move the mic between you and the subject, and an omnidirectional mic will still pick up a lot of the both of you, no matter who the mic is pointing towards.

Tip: an omnidirectional mic will not sound muffled because you point it away from you. But it will sound more distant if you move it further away.

2. Type
Microphone types include Condensor, Dynamic, Ribbon. There are a couple of others, but you won't see them in professional situations. Dynamic microphones are the most common, and produce a signal directly from the sound that hits the mic. Ribbon microphones have a metal ribbon inside a magnetic field. You probably remember seeing the big radio microphones of the radio serial days; they were ribbon microphones and had a figure-of-eight pattern. 
In a condensor mic, the air vibrates a very light plate and the electrical change is measured. There is so little signal produced that an amp is needed at the microphone head, and that's why condensor mics need power.

3. Microphone power
Power can be supplied to a condensor microphone via a battery in the mic, but that's not convenient in a studio. These days most condensor mics are "phantom powered" which means that the power is provided by the mixer down the same wires used for signal. Sounds hairy but it works very well.

4. Electret is not bad
An "electret" is another way of describing a condensor microphone in which the diaphragm is permanently polarised. Early electret microphones were not wonderful, and the term "electret" got a bad reputation. 
Many manufacturers just use the term "permanently polarised" to avoid saying "electret". What you call it isn't important: today's electret microphones are very very good. If you like the sound of a microphone, that's worth much more than its technical description.

5. Robustness
Some microphones need to be indestructible - just look at what happens during a live music gig. Studio microphones don't get the same amount of bashing, but they are often mistreated. 
A big difference between cheap and expensive microphones is how well they handle being dropped. More money gets you better construction and (hopefully) longer life.

6. Proximity effect and bass rolloff
All directional microphones have "proximity effect". As you get closer to the microphone bass frequencies are emphasised. And not just voice - anything closer to the mic will have the bass emphasised. Sometimes that sounds nice, and sometimes it makes the sound muddy. 
Many studio microphones have a bass rolloff switch to compensate, and some like Sennheiser's MD-421 even have variable rolloff. Many microphones are designed so that you can't get too close to the diaphragm, and that limits the proximity effect a bit. In a radio studio it's very important to understand how the mic sounds when you get closer and further away, because you can't control how guests move during an interview.

7. Pop shield
Plosives produce palpable pantheons of powerful perturbation. Translated: words with the letter P generate large amounts of very fast air - enough to overload the microphone. Pop shields break up the air and stop the microphone from over loading. A good pop shield is essential for a studio. Plus you can always take the pop shield off and wash it... although if it's dirty enough to wash, it's probably time for a new one. 

Hint: use water and maybe just a little dishwasher detergent, and RINSE the pop shield a lot. Then dry it in the sun. Don't put it in a drier or an oven... it will be game over and very messy.

8. Check mics for phasing
A bit esoteric, but very important. All mics used in a radio studio must have the same phase relationship. You can check this easily. Put the mics side by side, as close as possible. Talk into them both. 
Set the mic channels separately so that the two mics produce the same meter reading. Now turn them on together. 
If the sound gets louder or fatter: the mics are in phase. That's good. 
If the sound gets thinner: the mics are out of phase. That's bad.

9 Preserve absolute phase
Even more esoteric but REALLY important. Your studio must preserve absolute phase between the microphone and your headphones. Your brain knows what your voice sounds like. If your studio electronics inverts the sound before it gets to your ears, it will sound weird. Not everybody can tell you what's happened, but most presenters will know that it doesn't sound right.

10. Use similar mics in a studio
If you have a presenter and a guest talking in a studio, some of the presenter's voice will always get into the guest mic... and vice versa. Think about it: if the two microphones are different, then the leaked sound will be different, so your guest and presenter will sound different. 
How different? Maybe a lot, maybe a little. Now add a few more open mics, and think about what happens. Make life easy on yourself, and use all the same mics.

11. Set all mics to have same gain at same fader position
Much easier to do if all the mics are identical. When you turn up the microphone on a quiet guest your listeners will hear a nice warm sounding guest, and a more hollow sounding presenter. 
Why? Because more of the presenters voice is now leaking into the guest mic as well as the presenters mic, but the guest mic is further away. Your best defence against mics that sound unbalanced is to carefully sent them all up to be identical, and then get everyone talking at the same loudness. By the way: that's what people do in conversation, so it's not so hard.

12. Listen
Listen to microphones. That's the best way to compare them. But don't use your own voice: put microphones in front of other people and listen in a control room. That's the only way you will be able to hear the subtle differences.

AIR Thiruvananthapuram played a vital role during flood disaster in Kerala.

In the internationally accepted emergency kit during disasters, transistor is listed second next to torch. When all other sources of communication fail, transistors do work. In the south most part of our country, when even God disowned its land, the Kerala Stations of All India Radio stood with the devastated unlucky lot with round the clock transmission consecutively for three days extending its invisible hands of solace. We have received more than twenty thousand calls on our helpline number sharing their agony. We did lend patient listening and promptly aired. Also, personally conveyed the same to the nearest rescue center/control room. Today, we are going to the normal transmission hours with a firm feel that we did our role. Hereafter we will be concentrating on rehabilitation/health issue. We will be with them with tips on the various aspects that help them to limp towards normalcy. It is difficult to name those who were with us and to measure the amount of gratitude that we have. At this point, we record our heartfelt gratitude to all who stood with us in accomplishing the holy mission.

Top Tips : Headphones

Four devices in a radio studio convert a mechanical effect into an electrical effect, so they can never be perfect. These devices are
a) Microphones
b) Speakers
c) Pickup cartridges
d) Headphones

All of these have quirks and compromises that you need to understand in order to get the best results - unlike fully electronic devices, which have got about as good as they could get.
In this article John Maizels gives you some practical tips that will help you to work out how to get the best results from headphones.

Headphones (or "cans") are found in every radio studio... although "found" isn't always true: headphones have a strange tendency to grow legs and leave the studio without warning.
A good pair of headphones is essential to a broadcaster's craft.
Headphones come in many forms: they can be supported over the head, have a headband around the back, or have no band, in which case they sit just outside the ear canal or (in the case of earbuds) sit in the ear canal.
You might be surprised, but size isn't everything, and no one type is better than another. Some designs are definitely more useful that others in specific situations. In general, for radio work the best option usually is an over-the-head band, but be guided by your personal preference. You have to be comfortable using them, and that's what really counts.

1. Should they be closed or open?
This one is simple. Closed headphones, where your ears are fully enclosed, are the smart bet for radio use. Open headphones are less claustrophobic, are light, and let conversations in - useful when the mic is off. But they also let the sound out, which is not so useful when the mic is on. So go with closed.

2 What do they sound like?
Studio headphones should have a flat and smooth frequency response. It's surprising how many "brand" headphones sound like tin cans. Compare headphones against each other to get a feel for whether they sound open or boxy. Studio headphones shouldn't sound tizzy, and shouldn't sound doofa-doofa. That might be cool while you're walking down the street, but it gets very tiring very quickly in a studio. Plus, if the headphone has a specific peak, that's where you'll get feedback when the microphone is open and the headphones are up loud.
For sound mixing you need headphones that don't colour the sound and are as faithful as possible. But since there's no such thing as perfection, a good second best is a pair of headphones that produce reliable sound. Many sound recordists in film and television use Sony's MDR-7506 or MDR-V6 (which are identical) for that reason.

3 What connector
That pretty much depends on what connectors you have on your console, and whether the headphones come with an adaptor. Most mobile phones use 3.5mm (1/8") sockets. Most broadcast consoles use 6.5mm (1/4") sockets. You can use an adaptor to convert from one to the other, but... most adaptors get in the way. So there's no really good answer. One good solution is to have headphones with 3.5mm plug, and carry a right-angle adaptor which goes from 3.5mm socket to 6.5mm plug.

4 USB = disaster
Some headphones come with USB connectors, and are designed to work straight out of a laptop. That's a cute idea, but introduces a major challenge for radio work: USB means digital, and digital processing introduces delays. If you use a USB headset to talk to someone else and you don't hear your own voice, digital delay isn't a problem. But in radio we always listen to our own voices and the digital delay of USB connection will make your voice sound weird - to you. it only takes a few milliseconds delay for your voice to sound weird in your head, and a delay of tell milliseconds would be noticed by almost anyone. 
You're unlikely to be able to plug a pair of USB cans into a console, but you might be tempted to use them with a laptop. Just be aware that digital delay is not your friend.

5 Replaceable pads
After a while headphone pads get ratty and tattered. Hardwearing headphones allow you to change the pads when you need to. Often pads are available on eBay but beware. Cheap pads don't always fit the headphones, don't always last very well, and might not breathe very well - in which case the headphones won't be very comfortable to wear. On the other hand, cheap pads might be just fine. Unfortunately, the only way you'll find out is by trying different pads.

6 Replaceable other bits
Headphones will break at the least expected time, but most likely while they're in a bag going to where you need them. The broken piece will be made of plastic, maybe the hanger clip on the headband which holds the headphones together, or the cord. Because you've paid a lot of money for the headphones, it would be good to know that you can get spare parts. The major brands will have available spares.

7 Headset microphone
Headsets used in studios or OBs have a microphone built in. Not all microphones are equal, and not all headset microphones sound very good. In fact some won't even interface to a broadcast console without a major fight, so beware. 
The biggest trap with a headset mic is to get it placed correctly, so that it's not to breathy, not too nasal, and doesn't get popped on every other word.

8 Sensitivity
Put simply, sensitivity this is how much noise you get out for the amount of electricity that you put in. Headphones with a higher sensitivity will be louder for the same amount of input. High sensitivity is quite important if you intend run headphones from a phone or portable player which might not have a lot of output. But most radio consoles are able to drive headphones quite hard, so a lower sensitivity would be OK
In a studio, what's more important than absolute sensitivity is that all the headphones that you use should be about equally sensitive. That's so that you can swap headphones around and you won't be blasted by the previous person's settings, or unable to hear for the same reason.

9 Impedance
The impedance of a pair of headphones determines how much load it will put on the headphone driver, and how well the headphones will match the electrical circuit. 
High impedance headphones won't load down the amp as much, and you can have more of them hanging from the same socket before you create a problem. High impedance headphones might be 100-200 ohms. Low impedance headphones will be 8-20 ohms, and too many of those built out from the same adaptor will probably cause distortion or low sound... or both. Many studio headphones sit in the 50-100 ohm range, and that's pretty good.
