I encourage you to spend some time at NAB looking away from content creation tools, and spend some time looking at the content. You typically see more of it being talked about in panels and keynotes, but if you're feeling dour about the industry's prospects, I submit that it's because you haven't grasped the scope of what's happening out there.
I love that statement because that is one thing I do at NAB exclusively....watch content. I remember seeing the 8K demo from NHK a couple years back....never forget my first 8k! Looking forward to eye drooling 4k everywhere.
It's going to be tons of inspiration and great moments, mostly visually, and then some hardware/software conversations!
