NAB Show Preview
Check out the hottest products to be unveiled at the show.

This year's NAB Show is using the strapline “evolve, innovate, grow smarter.” Evolving comes naturally to engineers; consider the move from 270Mb/s to 1.5Gb/s and on to 3Gb/s. Innovation could mean many things. It could be time to revamp station branding, or to move more processes from videotape to file-based operations. Growing smarter needs a long, hard look at operations and processes. Can the latest tools for business process management be leveraged to run the station in a more agile fashion?

Although the buzz might be around 3-D, it's still a niche for broadcasters, with more buzz from the cinema sector. I'm sure that for most folks at the show, it's still the mundane, like digital glue or storage, that will be just as much of interest as those polarized glasses.

Budgets seem to be easing this year, so once more we could be seeing orders placed at the show. This is no time to stand still as competition fails to abate, whether from other broadcasters or from new media sectors.

I'm assuming that you have planned your trip to NAB to optimize that short time on the show floor. The following pages list some of the new products that will be launched at the show. Have a look to see if there is something you can add to your wish list.

Do you want to keep abreast of the latest news on NAB? Broadcast Engineering is running the “NAB Update” e-newsletter to keep you in touch with the latest news and product launches. For weekly updates, subscribe to the newsletter on the Broadcast Engineering Web site at www.broadcastengineeringworld.com.

If you can't attend the show, Broadcast Engineering will again be shooting BE TV: brief interviews recorded right at the booths. We will feature product demos and company news, and the interviews will be uploaded to the Broadcast Engineering Web site during the show.

Whether you are preparing for a visit, or catching up on what you may have missed, Broadcast Engineering can assist.
