NAB Conference in April

The NAB Show (National Association of Broadcasters) is coming up fast, on April 10 - 15 in Las Vegas (see my post from last year).

NAB is much more then broadcasting -- it covers the broad range from content acquisition and creation to distribution and delivery.

There's plenty to see and do, with some 75,000 attendees and 1,500 exhibitors. Check out the latest equipment at the exhibition, including cameras (e.g., Canon, JVC, Panasonic, Sony) and video hardware (NVIDIA, AJA, Matrox), and see tutorials on the new creative software (Adobe, Avid, but not Apple). (There's a nice searchable exhibitor list online, with the option to print the list as PDF.)

Besides a variety of special sessions, NAB also includes focused conferences on Broadcast Engineering, Broadcast Management, Broader-casting, Digital Cinema Summit, and Military & Government Summit.

For working pros, NAB also offers serious digital media training with Post|Production World -- five days of training on the latest techniques and practices for producers, directors, editors, designers and new media professionals, plus Apple and Avid official certification training.

And there's the Post Pit, which "brings together users, rock stars and creators of the most savvy and dynamic post-production software available" -- with perspectives on equipment and software and workflow.


As a bonus, NAB has provided a special registration code for free exhibits-only pass to the 2010 Show. This includes the Opening Keynote and State of the Industry Address, Info Sessions, Content Theater, Destination Broadband Theater and Exhibits. Use code A913 on the NAB registration page -- or code UG44 for a $100 discount off of the Post|Production World Conference.
