keysight, i'm really suprized that you are still using Youtube as a platform while they continue to to let it be used by people who are grooming children for sex.

Hundreds of big corporations have pulled their channels.

Will there be a test to impress video contest this year?  ^-^
If not, no worries  ;)

We're not doing one this year, but a little birdie told me that one of the YouTubers might be giving out some to folks that need them :).

It's honestly a LOT of work to do on our end, and we just didn't have the time to make it happen this year.

Haha. No worries! I bet it took a lot of work to coordinate and judge all those entries. Well, here's to my old entry. It's just as equally embarrassing now as it has ever been  ;)

This is utterly ridiculous - believing that Youtube "lets bad actors groom children for sex" does not hold water. This is bad for their business as advertisers pull their campaigns every time such things happen.

Since you are at it, also shame Dave, Shahriar, Mehdi, Alan Wolke, Mike Harrison, Martin Lorton and so many others that share their knowledge through the same platform.

It's these ridiculous overreactions which have lead to the adpocalypse and subsequent decrease of Youtube video quality. It's apparently better for Youtube to heavy handedly overreact, rather than to surgically remove the actual problem. It's all about that show of force! Preventing child abuse and not overreacting and destroying many other things can go together.

It was nice to see the human side of the developers, for the panel segment in the video.

Contrast that with to trying to submit a product S/W bug to Keysight. I find it impossible and gave up.
The Keysight website is all about service, warranty, licensing etc.

I've never recovered from seeing a blank (no trace) on a $28K InfiniiVision while the lowly Tektronix had no issues what so ever showing the waveform. Then adding insult to injury was trying to write up the bug and submit it to Keysight  |O

@floobydust - sorry you had that trouble! Did you give our support center a call? That's where a lot of our user bug reports come from, and they're super helpful.

@salvagedcircuitry - I remember watching your entry! I thought it was put together quite well :). Speaking from personal experience, it's always very hard to watch old videos of yourself.

The audio console has higher control input latency than a Tek scope.

Oof, the stream today was rough, sorry for the inconsistency. It seems that YouTube is having some significant trouble with their streaming servers today. The streaming control room pages have been pretty intermittent. However, I can't rule out error on our end. Thanks for sticking with it, we'll have it fixed for next Monday.

Daniel, thanks for sharing the link for the engineering joke faceoff video in the comments. That was a good revival.  :-DD

That would be nice :) That would cost them ca. 55 billion dollar, whey everyone who singed up in this forum gets a DSOX1204A. I think no one wish that Keysight goes bankkrupt :)

I can't believe the amount of technical issues they've been having with the attempts at a live stream. Lets face it, the goal is to get more people interested in their product and generate sales -- I'd love to win one, but the production quality of the stream is on par with amature night at the AV Club. 30 minutes of technical issues one day, 3 stream failures on a different day... not good.

@electromotive, I totally agree and am honestly a bit embarrassed with the tech trouble we've had. We suspect there were some server issues, as the stream control room pages kept crashing/glitching and we saw some other channels have streaming/audio issues in the last couple days. We're waiting on some sort of statement from YouTube, but since it's creator-side I'm not sure what we'll hear.

I don't want to blame it on YT, though, and we're taking all kinds of extra steps to make sure the next couple run smoothly.

Very nice video today... except, of course, for the fact that I didn't win a scope!  :P

There's probably some weird integration issues going on, because every other Keysight production has been quite good. Hopefully it all gets resolved in time, because a lot of great info has been presented otherwise.   :-+

These contests are great, and I enter when I can, but watching the live streams shows how these contests get over bloated.
There were so many people on there posting such childish comments, and not adding value to the discussion, and just wanting free stuff. And it takes away from the genuine people participating and watching the information, who could really benefit from winning a nice piece of gear, and may not have the resources yet to purchase something.
But, I'll keep participating in the hopes that I can win, but also to gather whatever great information I can on your products.
Good luck everyone!! :D

Where's all the whining this year? Surely Keysight must have ruined somebody's life via the winner's own country's tax demands?

Anyone else having browser issues trying to enter??
I entered, and when I go back in the next day, it still says come back tomorrow, like it's caching something.
I clear out all of the browser settings and it still happens. I switch browsers, and I can enter, but the issue returns.
And sometimes it just says entry received, when I really didn't enter anything.
I have no way of knowing if I'm even entering the contest. I set confirmation email when I enter, but then get only one email, not one per entry.
So confused.

Notification Emails have stopped for me after the first few days after entering. But the browser display works for me in Firefox.
Looking at the winners list i almost had a heart attack  ;D One winner has almost the same first name than mine, just one letter different, with the same initial... I'm still hoping i maybe mistyped and will soon get an Email  >:D
