If you are in the broadcast business you probably know someone who is going to NAB in Las Vegas this week. It is the second largest convention in Las Vegas. All three halls are filled with everything from radio to television to pre and post production systems and services. There are more than 1000 exhibits. If that isn’t enough, between the halls at the convention center there will be satellite trucks and production trucks for the conventioneers to visit. We always go every year with a long shopping list. We estimate that more than $100M in transactions takes place on the show floor.
Each year there is something new that grabs the attention of everyone. Last year it was remote controller helicopters capable of carrying aloft video cameras. We bought one and are using it to capture some unreal footage for our clients. We hope that you get to go to this conference either this year or at some time in the future. Regardless of when you go make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. You will need them.
