Public Television to Air Industry-Produced Segment
AIM Global, Warrendale, Pa.—recognized as the worldwide authority on automatic identification and mobility—announced the availability of the public television-produced video titled “Spotlight On: RFID Technology.” The video is the culmination of a year-long project sponsored by AIM Global members FEIG ELECTRONIC, Intermec Technologies, Markem, PSC and Symbol Technologies, and produced by public television film entertainment company, Trivue Entertainment.
“Spotlight On” is an ongoing series of educational, short programs that has been broadcasting nationally on public television for more than 17 years. Each segment may run for a year or longer, depending on the relevance of the content and its educational value to viewers. The six-minute video was produced with public television viewers in mind as a way to educate them about what radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is and to illustrate some of the ways it’s being used in day-to-day life.
In addition, the video features footage from the member sponsors, American
Express and The Boeing Company, combined with interviews by Dr. Bill Hardgrave, director, University of Arkansas RFID Research Center, and Ken Porad, associate technical fellow for Boeing.
Since April 29, the video has aired on the PBS affiliate stations in the United States at the discretion of the program directors. The video is also available in several formats for download from the AIM Global Web site at www.media.aimglobal.org.
