Most of my readers are probably familiar with the National Association of Broadcasters' annual convention in Las Vegas, to be held this year from April 10th through 15th. It's the premier broadcasting technology conference in North America, and along with IBC, held every September in Amsterdam, one of the world's two top broadcasting conferences. This year, they'll have exhibit space dedicated to over-the-top video and IPTV on broadband networks, along with the show's usual focus on audio and video production and post-production hardware, software and services.
I've both spoken at and attended NAB over the years, and if you have anything to do with audio or video production, post-production or distribution, it's well worth attending. They're giving away free exhibit-only passes; to register, visit http://ow.ly/13TL9 or the main NAB Show website at http://nabshow.com/register with the code A913. (If you decide to go, I'd suggest that you register for a hotel room early; even with the poor economy, hotels tend to fill up quickly.)
