Graham Bennet, David Thompson and I have recently arrived back from the annual NAB Broadcast & Production Trade Show that is held in the USA. If you have not attended before and this is your kind of thing – than I highly recommend it. There are masses of displays and just so much to see, it’s hard to pack it all into the show days.
Attendance was up on last year’s numbers with the total delegates reaching 88,044 (up from 82,650 in 2009). The general buzz of the show was a positive outlook within the industry; 3D technology was very prevalent throughout the show with all major manufacturers having some form of 3D display on their stand.
Here are some of my favourite product announcements/highlights of the show:
Avid Media Composer V5
Sony PMW-320 – XDCAM EX Camcorder
Sony LMD2451TD – 3D Production Monitor
Panasonic AGHPX372EN – P2 Camcorder
EditShare Flow V2.0
Everything just keeps getting bigger and better, and with 3D everywhere, it seems the industry is moving into a whole other playing field.
For more details on the event and the technology, please give us a call, email, or stop by the office.
