The National Association of Broadcasters annual trade show is almost upon us. The convention runs April 6-11 in Las Vegas, and it's a must-do for serious video content providers.
While the NAB show is primarily a membership organization for broadcast radio and television, the show's scope goes beyond that. In an age of mobile communication and streaming content, video and radio distribution and sales have changed. Commerce has changed, and the tools for creating and managing content are rapidly evolving. Attending the NAB show is an important way to "future-proof" your career as a media professional.
The NAB show includes training sessions, technology conferences, and of course, a trade show (be sure to visit Adorama at booth C7412 and say hi to Abby Hessney, our helpful video rep, and learn about our latest broadcast-oriented products there.). Sessions include tutorials in streaming media, new digital workflow, sessions about using Adobe Premiere Pro, DSLR workflow, greenscreen techniques and much more.
Separate conferences are being held for Broadcast engineering, cloud computing, disruptive media, and new technology and cinema, among others. The conferences will take place over the course of the 4-day convention.
As for exhibitors, there are over 1,600 of them, and it is recommended to (a) bring comfortable shoes and (b) visit the NAB exhibitor page and plan in advance to reduce time spend wandering around the Convention Center.
