Later this month, I'll be heading to the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention in (where else?) Las Vegas.
The NAB is the annual convention where all of the world's top broadcasters get together to see the latest gear in production and post-production gear (cameras, monitors software, storage, etc) to create all of the shows we see on TV, cable, via satellite (and now on much smaller screens, too, like cell phones). It's a huge show.
File-based workflow is big as facilities look to optimize their work with video -- so many new formats, channels and of course an ever greater demand for High-Def (HD) content. (Funny how the equation works -- more HD content = more demand for HD TVs = more HD content. etc., etc., etc.).
Let me know if you have anything you'd like to know before the show about where the future of broadcast -- and more entertainment -- is heading.
(Anybody out there going to the show?)
