April is my favorite time of the year. The hockey playoffs start –Let’s Go Islanders! The baseball season starts – Let’s Go Mets! And the industry’s biggest and most important trade show happens – NAB - I’m going to Vegas! This year I’m really excited about several categories of emerging technologies / markets:
Affordable shared storage solutions
Live production & switching tools
More powerful, flexible and affordable encoding / streaming devices
New features and updates to NLE software & plug-ins
This article is my wish list, so none of the comments below are based on anything more then what I’ve been hearing my customers ask for and what I’ve been asking from my vendors for over the past year.
