                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)

 Newsgroup       : sci.engr.television.broadcast
 Status          : unmoderated
 Distribution    : Worldwide
 Summary         : Discussions relating to broadcast tv facility equipment
 Proponents      : Rob Chambers <robgc@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca>

This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of an unmoderated
newsgroup entitled sci.engr.television.broadcast, and the renaming of
sci.engr.advanced-tv to sci.engr.television.advanced.

This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup
Creation. Its language is based on previously submitted RFDs.

This RFD is being cross-posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, rec.video.cable-tv,
  rec.video.satellite.tvro, rec.video.production, sci.electronics,
  sci.engr, sci.engr.advanced-tv

CHARTER: sci.engr.television.broadcast

This newsgroup will be used for the technical discussions of equipment
relating to the operation of a broadcast television facility. This scope
will include equipment that is used to transmit, store, manipulate, or
generate broadcast quality signals. Engineering standards, practices and
troubleshooting will also be discussed.

Recognized groups (such as NAB, SMPTE, etc) will also be encouraged to
discuss upcoming conferences and information relating to the broadcast
industry.


RATIONALE: sci.engr.television.broadcast

There is currently two newsgroups that border on the preceding charter,
sci.engr.advanced-tv and rec.video.production. A third group,
rec.video.professional, is also being proposed by Micheal Silbergleid
<msilber@li.net>.

The scope of rec.video.production does not cover the technical aspects of the
broadcast quality signal and serves more as an operational and a consumer
based group.

The sci.engr.advanced-tv group is for technical discussions on the future
proposals to change the current television system into a digital or HDTV
system.

The rec.video.professional proposal is for the operational and business
side of the broadcast industry. This group will not contain the indepth
technicial and scientific analysis that is being proposed under this RFD.

Many broadcast engineers have commented on the lack of an appropriate
group to discuss the technicial aspects of the current television systems,
this is why this RFD has been created.


MAILING LISTS

No known lists exist.


CHARTER: sci.engr.television.advanced

This is the renaming of the current group sci.engr.advanced-tv to
sci.engr.television.advanced. The current charter of this group will
remain the same.


RATIONALE: sci.engr.television.advanced

This will allow the advanced-tv group to be included under the new
television heirarchy.


PROCEDURE

Please post any responses to this message to news.groups. If you use
the follow-up feature on your newsreader, this should happen
automatically.  All discussion about the merits of this proposal should
occur on news.groups.


FUTURE CALL FOR VOTES

After a discussion period of 21-30 days, if there are no overwhelming
objections to the proposed group, there will be a Call For Votes (CFV)
posted to the same groups as this RFD. The voting period will be at least
21 days. If the group passes by receiving 100 more YES votes than NO votes,
and (at least) twice as many YES votes as NO votes, it will be created.

Do not vote until the CFV has been posted. More specific instructions on
how to vote for this newsgroup will be posted within the CFV.

HOW TO VOTE

Erase everything above the top "-=-=-=-" line and erase everything
below the bottom "-=-=-=-" line. Do not erase anything between these
lines and do not change the group name. Basically, remove everything
except the ballot - we have to save them all on disk.

Give your name on the line that asks for it. Place a YES or NO in the
brackets next to the group name to vote for or against it. Don't
worry about spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that
your reply inserts.

Send MAIL to:   voting@Syra.NET
Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.

Neither ABSTAIN nor CANCEL messages are counted as votes; they serve
only to cancel any previous vote. Abstentions are noted in the final
vote list, whereas CANCEL removes your vote from that list entirely.
(This is the only difference between the two.)

Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The
votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge-
ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again.
It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.

If you later change your mind you may vote again; only your last valid
vote will count.

Standard Guidelines for voting apply: no more than one vote per person,
no more than one vote per account. If you attempt multiple votes or
other vote fraud, all your votes may be canceled and your name published.

The complete vote list will be posted with the vote result, including
how each person voted. Note that Usenet votes are not done by secret
ballot.

There will then be a five-day period during which the published vote
list may be corrected and any irregularities addressed. The
requirements for group creation are 100 more YES votes than NO votes,
and 2/3 of all counted votes being YES.
