At the April 27 2005 meeting...
Our Annual NAB Wrapup
At WBZ-TV4

NAB is the largest event in our industry, but what's more, it's one of the biggest trade shows/conventions in the entire world, spanning multiple convention halls with more than 1400 exhibitors. Simply navigating the floors can take an entire week, let alone making sense of what's out there. But our panelists are seasoned professionals, experts at analyzing and making sense of the aisle and booth numbers, as well as understanding and positioning products and players and display. And they were ready to offer their insights from NAB 2005. This year's panel included:

    Peter Fasciano
    Corporate Fellow, Advance Development, AVID Technology

    Mike Keller
    Director of Engineering, Easter Region, Hearst Argyle Television

    Joe Mendonca
    Manager, Product Development (Streaming Systems), HB Communications

    John Rule
    Founder and President, Rule Systems

    Bob Turner
    Video Editor and Contributing Editor/Visionary, Video Systems Magazine

    Rick Zach
    Chief Engineer, WCVB-TV5

Jeff Sauer, Contributing Editor for Video Systems Magazine, Sound and Video Contractor Magazine, and Computer Graphics Magazine moderated the discussion. Paul Beck taped it and we hope to post the video soon.
