December 16, 2009

Krishna Jayakar, an associate professor in the Department of Telecommunications at Penn State, will serve as an invited panelist Thursday, Dec. 17, during a workshop conducted by the Federal Communications Committee in Washington, D.C.

The panel will address reform of Video Relay Service (VRS), a videotelecommunications service that allows deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-impaired individuals to communicate with hearing people in real time by using a sign language interpreter.

The panel -- open to the public at the FCC’s headquarters at 445 12th Street NW in Washington, D.C. -- will address issues such as fraud and abuse, and compensation for the service.

Jayakar teaches courses on telecommunications management and media economics. His research interests include telecommunications policy, intellectual property rights and media economics.
