Its been over a week since NAB ended and I have to tell you I am still digging out from the show.
I am finishing my NAB wrapup for here on the Cow, while it was a big show, I did not really see a huge amount of what I would call compelling, at this year's show. Also missing were the large number of DP's that attended the show in 2010. I hope that is a sign that people are once again working in Hollywood.
Interesting also was list of companies that only updated exisiting product lines or the trend this year of openly showing prototypes of thunderbolt and other technologies under development rather than keeping those under wraps. I am working on securing permisson to talk about some of the items that were not on the show floor that really are changing the future of our business.
I have been negligent in posting some of what I am doing for this years DP Conference at NAB so here is a schedule and links to some of the speakers and topics being covered.
I am very thankful for the Technical assistance from Barco Inc and RealD for our VIewing Needs.
