New Mexico PBS / KNME-TV, co-licensed to the University of New Mexico and Albuquerque Public Schools, recently held a cutting-edge conference, focusing on v6, a new PBS content delivery system, currently in the testing phase. Over 50 senior managers, from PBS stations across the nation, traveled to Albuquerque to take part in this informational roadshow.

“New Mexico PBS is an invaluable partner in the development of v6,” said PBS chief technology officer Mario Vecchi. “As one of the project’s Proof of Concept stations, New Mexico PBS is playing an integral role in the design and testing of this new interconnection platform that has the potential to improve the efficiency of station operations and move our entire system into the future. I am extremely grateful to Franz Joachim and his entire team for their commitment to the mission of public media and their dedication to innovative thinking.”

“Bringing so many key people from around the country to review and discuss and argue the design on its merits is an important element in achieving the goal of a robust and diverse PBS system,” said Franz Joachim, general manager & CEO, NM PBS. “We are proud to have had a role in fostering this conversation, and well as representing forward thinking technology in New Mexico.”
