I spent day 2 of NAB expo in the lower south hall of LVCC. Before I headed there, I stopped by the NMX lounge to watch Don Baine stream his event live. Andy McCaskey was there, which was a great surprise. I got to talk with him, Rick Calvert and Patti Hoskins from NMX.
Lots of big booths and great products to be seen in south hall. I started at Vocal booth where I found out how I can put a soundproof booth into any room and not disturb the neighbors. Guy Coleman mentioned these booths are even used in prisons as one-on-one video conferencing between inmates and lawyers, family, or other visitors.
I stopped by the OWC booth as we talked about their new media solution in Jupiter – a SSD array that could fit on a desk or in a server room. We also went through all the OWC products and learned more about their SSD enclosure systems.
WeVideo was at the show – a company where you upload media to their servers and then edit using any web browser. They have a media algorithm that allows for even slow connections to deliver the raw footage. They offer many services most video editors offer including chromakey and lower 3rd editing.
Telestream had a large booth this year as they were showing off the newest software in Switch – a media playback, inspection, and conversion tool. Of course, I was interested in talking about Wirecast – a program I use a lot.
Many more conversations with companies like Black Magic, Amazon Web Services, Autodesk, Wacom, and more.
As I was heading back, I stopped by DJI – a company that has been in the news recently about their drone technology. I got to talk with Willis Chung about these drones and their camera stabilizing system. Its amazing how these drones can keep a steady shot while flying high in the air, even with windy conditions.
An awesome day 2 with some great interviews.
