It’s that time of the year for “NAB.” After surviving SXSW each year, we quickly turn our attention to this enormous trade show.
In Las Vegas each spring, acres upon acres of the top video equipment manufacturers and suppliers peddle their wares at the convention center. There are always many tempting new cameras, lights and other tools to look at to add to our gear package, and tons of opportunities for continuing education.
Last year we had a great time at some off-site vendor events, including the zany SuperMeet. Here, vendors demonstrated their super-cool hardware and software offerings, and a huge raffle gave away thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
We always learn a lot of the latest tips and tricks by watching in-booth demonstrations, and the show is inspiring to see how the entire industry continues to evolve. From movies, to news, to corporate video production, the tools and techniques are always evolving.
The show is BIG, and can be overwhelming. But NAB always gives us fresh ideas about video production that we can use for to help our clients.
