Great time at NAB 2013
NAB Expo Readers,
I had another great time at NAB, walking around and seeing what's hot this year. There was just to much to take in when you have only two days. It seems that 3D wasn't being pushed at all like it was last year. GoPro always draws a huge crowd especially when they hand out prizes like the Hero3 camera and the crowd chanting, GoPro! GoPro!. Canon had a nice display of all their cameras, camcorders, etc. I like when you’re able to actually get hands on experience with the product you plan to purchase in the future. Then, if you have any questions, the Canon professionals are there to assist you. Sony software exhibitors are always prepared with their VASST Team ready to teach and show off their latest software packages along with sound effects. My friend John Rofrano was there showing his skills in editing and always ready to give a helping hand, thanks John. Sony VASST Team had hosted another great party event this year, great job guys. Right across from Sony software was B&H ready to give great customer service as usual, handing out their catalogs, and showing their camcorders, tripods, etc. DJI Phantom with GoPro on board was a big hit. Demonstrators with their remote control in hand showed off the Phantom flying around the crowd while taking movies with a GoPro camera. Adobe had a nice exhibit showing the latest products. My friends at SmartSound are always ready to show how to customize royalty free music to fit your video projects and offer discount prices on their updated software and sound tracks. This is to name only a few. There was so much and all I could say is WOW!
Bob Zelin at Maxx Digital was extremely busy and he's been back to NAB twice, once in the future and the present. View “Bob has already seen NAB 2013” below (http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/42/855667). Hey Bob, it was nice seeing you again and I like to thank ATTO Technology, Maxx Digital, and Solarflare for the beer and sponsoring this event at Hard Rock. It was great to relax after a long day. I hope all of you enjoyed NAB 2013 as much as I did and if you missed NAB 2013, there’s always next year. As Bob stated, “what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas”. Well, it's time to get back to work.
