What to Expect at the 2011 NAB Show
If you don’t work in the broadcast and entertainment industry, you may not have heard of the NAB Show before. This annual event is a showcase of technology, exhibits, and presentations for professionals in the television, film, and radio industries and is hosted by the National Association of Broadcasters. With the 2011 NAB Show just around the corner, let’s take a look at what we can expect to see at this year’s event.
This year’s NAB Show will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. An estimated 90,000 people will descend on the convention center from April 9th-14th, 2011. The first two days of the show feature conferences and presentations while the exhibitor booths open up on April 11th.
The theme for the 2011 show is “The Art of Integration,” which will focus on the changing landscape of broadcast entertainment in the 21st century. How will advances in mobile technology and social networking affect the way users view and enjoy content?
The show’s opening ceremony will kick things off with Academy Award-winning director James Cameron and several distinguished members of the NAB. Other presenters include Leslie Moonves of CBS, Steven Levitan of television’s “Modern Family,” and producers of the “Glee” television show.
One thing people in the broadcast and entertainment industries depend on is technology. The exhibit booths will feature plenty of products designed to make multimedia production easier. Manufacturers such as Microboards Technology and Primera Technology will be on site showing off their latest automated CD printers and publishers.
Stop by and visit Primera at booth SL8920 for a live demonstration of the company’s latest creation, the Bravo 4100. The Bravo 4100 autoprinter can print an entire CD or DVD disc in just 6 seconds’ time! No other disc printer on the market comes close for a full-color, full size disc print!
The company offers a print-only machine as well as CD/DVD and Blu-ray disc publishers for creating professional looking discs quickly and easily. With its 100-disc capacity, the Bravo is perfectly suited to creating short runs or large copies of discs. A system such as this is great for making copies of screeners and pre-release material, as well as backing up and archiving large video projects.
Besides the exhibit hall and the general sessions, the NAB Show will also be hosting super sessions, luncheons, and events in the content theater. It looks like this year’s NAB Show is going to be a great one!
