please please shed some light for the benefit of all. And thank you in advance because we are genuinely curious.
so i work for a major broadcast company as technical support and i get about 1 or 2 calls a day in regards to these noises. now some of them are
legitimate noises because their receivers are too hot or not properly ventilated, or the tv etc, but every now and then (the 1 or 2 a day) i get
someone that shares a noise with me that i can hear over the phone. it sounds exactly like the sound you had in that video. let me elaborate on what
were trained to do
when i originally went through training, and also during weekly trainings, the issue was brought up, most of the things they had us look for was poor
ventillation issues like i described earlier, but they had us listen to the noise you had there, and similar electronic sounds, all carrying patterns
like so. they told us these sounds are "experimental programming" and never to bring up the subject with customers only because they might become
"confused". were trained that when we here those sounds (and seriously they are literally exact sounding to your video) that were supposed to ignore
it, and tell the customer its their tv or possibly continue to downplay, suggesting its in their heads, we never acknowledge it.
were also trained about "flashes" which are differing light patterns that flash between frames, so rapidly that even with a dvr or recorder, the
frames are too large to capture the flashes, were told these are also "experimental programming" as well, and though it would be rare for a dvr to
capture it, if it does were supposed to downplay it and suggest its their tv etc.
where it gets weird is when you talk with the engineers that we work closely with, we work with them as they keep us updated if some programming
difficulties come up, things like that. i asked one of the engineers whom im friends with, what his take on this "experimental programming" was, and
he said it comes directly from the content creators, meaning its not your company, its not cable, satellite, internet etc, it comes directly from the
creators of the content. now the engineers know much more about the systems than i do, as im mostly customer based and dont have all the know, but my
friend said they mostly experiment on advertisements, and shows and movies, but they do it within different regions for testing. now when we get the
broadcast it comes in encrypted so it cant be picked up over the air without the proper programs etc, but he says the "experimental programming" is
highly encrypted and nobody can get into it.
the real question of course, is what is on the experimental programming, why is it there, honestly i dont know, my engineer friend where i work doesnt
know either, he believes its subliminal messagine through flashing patterns and also through sound, interestingly enough he has been working there for
nearly 2 decades and said its always been there, and yet nobody has much to say about it. if your asking me as die hard ats'er ill tell you its truly
subliminal messaging, something offs about it, but if you ask me when im at work, ill tell you its all in your head. maybe these arent the answers
your looking for OP, but i can assure you the sounds your hearing are those "experimental programmings", and i hope i was able to give you some
insight into it, because i too would like to know, and deep down i feel almost guilty lying to customers who hear it, it feels wrong, and the sound
