THE SHIFT TO DIGITAL, why NASCAR choose Motorola

Again a new short article i found remarkable around the topic of radio accessory’s, what would you need to do if i didn’t post this ehh? you would have to check out the original content, and the chances you found it would be slim, so think yourself blessed that i’ve shared this excellent piece with you.

NASCAR officials have enthusiastically embraced MOTOTRBO, and they applaud the benefits it has brought to the NASCAR experience. Smooth Management of Communications Traffic MOTOTRBO “does a super job for us,” according to Kerry Tharp, Director of Communications, NASCAR. “You have to communicate pre-race, during the race, and most importantly for us, post-race because when the race is over, that’s when our media operation kicks in for us full-bore. We bring in our top three drivers for interviews; we bring in our winning driver to the victory lane, and we also check in on the garage to make sure that post-race is going along as it should. We have to make sure we’re communicating quickly and concisely. Through MOTOTRBO, we’re able to do our jobs a whole lot better than we have in the past.”

A Clear Road for Communications Digital provided a measurable improvement over NASCAR’s old system, which sometimes had a slower response time. “MOTOTRBO has taken NASCAR to a whole new level.” Steve Lowery, Chief Scorer, NASCAR, explains, “With the old system, there was a lot of interference. Sometimes you couldn’t hear at all because of static. With MOTOTRBO, it’s much clearer.”

Consistency and Reliability
You’d Expect from a Winner According to David Hoots, Managing Event Director, NASCAR, one of the most important benefits is “extended battery life because some of our days are extremely long. We have to be able to communicate consistently and reliably. MOTOTRBO has done a super job for us.” Hoots adds that MOTOTRBO is the first step toward an even more comprehensive communications system: “We took the opportunity to start with a very solid foundation and we will grow with the capabilities the radios offer. With a digital system, we’re going to reap the benefits for years to come.” “ With the old system, there was a lot of interference. Sometimes you couldn’t hear at all because of static. Now, with MOTOTRBO, it’s much clearer.”

Robust Enough for the Toughest Environments The NASCAR study, Hoots recalls, determined that the organization needed “one clear and uninterrupted communication system, and because we move from venue to venue, we’re faced with a big challenge.” The robust, durable and adaptable MOTOTRBO system was able to move from location to location – over 56 events every year, almost every month of the year – for quick deployment and certain performance. “Reliability,” says Hoots, “is of utmost importance. We cannot have a product that is going to fail. We must have the most robust system possible, so MOTOTRBO is the right system for us.” According to Michael Helton, President, NASCAR, “Fans have become interested in the entertainment aspect of listening in, so we still want an analogue system going out for fans who still use analog radios.” The ability of MOTOTRBO to support digital and analogue communications made it the perfect selection for
this blended environment that had to accommodate fans in the stands who want to scan for instant updates using older analog radios.

Twice the Capacity
MOTOTRBO is able to manage large numbers of radios by utilizing TDMA – time division multiple
access – which divides the channel into time slots for greater spectrum efficiency. TDMA enables each single repeater to do the work of two repeaters for enhanced call management with private, group, and system-wide calling capability. Digital Means Clarity MOTOTRBO supports audio quality with digital clarity and noise-canceling technology so that everyone is able to connect with one another and communicate more efficiently. MOTOTRBO radios contain a digital signal processor (DSP) that fine-tunes the audio. When a user connects an IMPRES™ intelligent audio accessory to a MOTOTRBO radio, the accessory provides the radio’s DSP with a unique set of audio parameters to shape the microphone and speaker frequency responses, ensuring the maximum clarity, volume, and intelligibility of each communication. “ Fans have become interested in the entertainment aspect of listening in, so we still want an analog system going out for fans who still use analog radios.”

Batteries Go Farther on a Single Charge MOTOTRBO is able to maintain consistent, reliable communications. All digital radios provide improved battery life, and because TDMA digital systems
utilize batteries more efficiently, users have received up to 18 hours of operation after quick-charging a standard nickel metal hydride battery. Talk-time is now extended and personnel spend less time returning to base to recharge their radios or pick up fresh batteries.

Robust Enough to Take on the Road
One key advantage of MOTOTRBO is that it’s designed to be packed up, moved to a new location and set up, only to be taken down days later and moved again. To withstand that kind of constant use, a radio has to be strong, and MOTOTRBO has proven to be very strong, robust, and durable.

Radius Earphones Ideal For Exercising of All Types

I started writing content in January 2009 based on the advice of an fellow author. The advice was this: Article writing is an effective way to deliver messages to readers, while simultaneously establishing and building upon your brand. Years later, I have found this advice both truthful and valuable.

In today’s multi-faceted world, music lovers need a pair of headphones that are versatile and comfortable, no matter where life takes them.

Radius Earphones is aware of this fact and continually develops cutting-edge products for a diverse mix of consumers, especially where exercise is concerned!
Radius sports earphones are ideal for mountain biking on nature trails, running marathons, lifting weights in the gym, and climbing up rocky cliffs. They are the ideal exercise headphones because of the way they fit within the ear canal – as snug as a bug!

4 Elements that Make Radius Earphones Ideal for Exercising
1. Earbuds Make All the Difference in the World. Radius has designed amazingly soft earbuds that fit comfortably within the ear canal. They’ve even created two sizes (Regular & Small) to accommodate various ear types. Athletes can wear them for hours without pain or irritation.

2. Amazing Sound! Not only are they comfortable, the sound is off the charts. This motivates exercisers to reach new heights and get in the zone. Too many sports earphones put out distorted and tinny sound. Radius’ founders love sports and have succeeded in developing the perfect pair for both comfort and crystal clear listing.

3. Quality, quality! Radius prides itself on creating extremely high quality products and utilizing materials that can last for years. Because they are 100% committed to quality, the company guarantees all items for one year, and will replace defective products within a few days.

4. Lightweight. Radius headphones are ultra-light. This makes them ideal running earphones, jogging headphones and gym headphones. Bulky ones are far too uncomfortable for daily use, and usually inspire most athletes to succumb to yanking them off. Exercisers have been so impressed with Radius Earphones that they give them two thumbs up time and time again!

This also has to do with the fact that Radius offers best-in-class service and always listens to the needs of its customers.
Apart developing exercise-perfect earphones, Radius prides itself on continually innovating products that solve specific problems. This includes developing bass friendly ear buds, helping those with small ears experience comfort, and making the transition between listening to stellar music answering a phone call seamless.

So how can I get my hands on a pair of Radius Earphones you may be wondering? All you have to do is visit website and review its exciting array of products. The site also reveals the fact that CNET, PC Magazine and Macworld recommend Radius because of its deep commitment to its customers, high quality products and off-the-hook pricing!
