What to look for @ NAB 2010

I’ve got my flight and hotel booked, so now it’s time to start making plans.  If you haven’t been to NAB – it’s massive.  All three halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center are filled with shinny new video gear.

So what am I looking at?

  • Avid:  Kinda quiet on rumors from inside the purple triangle, but there are a few very interesting wisps in the air…
  • EditShare:  Some new acquisitions – including Lightworks of all things will make it an interesting NAB for Andy and the crew
  • Facilis:  The full roll-out of the shared fill system will break down the cross-platform wall, and a snazzy new website as well
  • Sony:  The EX family is solid so I’m looking for incremental improvements.  Also solid state SR – and people complain about the cost of SxS cards
  • Panasonic: 3D and really big plasmas will be the big highlights, but I really just want to see the single P2 card reader shipping
  • Broadcast Pix:  Got up close and personal with the new Granite switcher a couple of weeks ago – very slick!  Check out the new app to run Broadcast Pix on the new Apple iPad.

More to come.
