At 9:00 AM this morning, the 2009 NAB Show opened the doors to its trade show, the crowds rushed in, and the Digital Production BuZZ went to work.
After two days tuning our systems, we were in full operation today – gathering almost 100 short news interviews, and fifteen in-depth reports.
Here, for instance, you see me, in the red shirt, interviewing Pete Schlatter, director of marketing for G-Technologies. Our award-winning producer, Cirina Catania, is standing behind the assignment desk in the back. Hidden behind the audio gear are several audio editing workstations, streaming station, and interview scheduling desk (yay, Debbie Price!).
It is fun watching people walk up to the booth and stand listening to the interviews. While we don’t have the ground-thumping power of subwoofers run amok – as seems to be the case periodically in the Content Theater, it is always great to have an audience reacting to the comments of the guest.
Tomorrow, we have interviews scheduled from about 9:00 am till 3:00 pm — feel free to stop by, sit down, and listen in. (Our audio speakers aren’t quite as big as a theater, but they do sound great!)
Here’s the list of guests that appear on tonight’s show:
Richard Florida, Noted author and NAB Keynote speaker Bruce Nazarian, President of IDMA Mitch Jacobson, Director, editor, and multicam expert David Taylor, President, Cineform Allan Jaeniecke, President, Imagineer Shari Barnett, Marketing Director, Applications, Mediaroom Dan Lutter, Director of Sales, Net Insight

Best of all, we set a new speed record for getting everything done. I won’t know what to do with a full night’s sleep…
