Every April, broadcasters, equipment manufacturers, service providers and anyone else associated with broadcasting meet in Las Vegas for the NAB Convention. As usual, I am here to see what’s new, make new acquaintances and contacts and plan the year ahead. This year I am sharing my impressions with Broadcast Brazil. The show as usual is extremely large, taking up the entire Las Vegas Convention Center. The convention is full of the sound of conversations, new business and old colleagues meeting each other. If you want to see anything it is very important to plan in advance, it is not possible to see everything in the time allotted.
I met with several manufacturers on Monday and had a look at what they had to offer: EVS is showing their XT-3 LSM platform for sports offering integrated video recording, editing, playout, logging and archiving. Their XEDIO dispatcher for News handles content ingest, distribution, editing and storage. The applications for entertainment production and post production is an integration of several of their products allowing simultaneous ingest, editing, director preview, playout to air, archiving and integration with other post production software platforms.
SSL is showing the enhancements made to the C10 Console and their line of production and post-production audio products.
SHURE is showing their new line of microphones designed for use with SLR video cameras.
DOME Productions of Canada is showing their new HD truck with the chassis built by Girling. This truck showed just how efficiently space can be used in the design and integration of a large scale HD television truck, all the resources of a studio in a mobile package. A beautiful layout both technologically and aesthetically.
There are literally hundreds of manufacturers with new products and services. If you could only learn by just walking around and absorbing ideas through the air, you would be the smartest person in television.
