Guests and Non Members Welcome! Refreshments will be served!

Once again, we convene our panel of experts to discuss the NAB Conference and Exhibition. We will learn what our panelists were looking for and expecting at the show. Were these expectations met? Did the manufacturers provide the solutions the panelists need? Were there any surprises? What products or technologies particularly impressed them this year?

My career in television began at the Dallas County Sheriff’s Jail. I received a CETA grant to work on the in-house cable system for the inmates.  It was an eye opening experience for someone fresh out of high-school.  From there I moved to GTE Southwest doing installs and repairs.  I learned how to endure winters hanging from telephone poles and ensuring customer satisfaction.
I returned to television as a Master Control operator at my local PBS station in Dallas where I learned the secret to my success.  Read the Manuals! I was able to learn the interconnection of systems and signal flow.  I was then able to move from Dallas to Washington D.C, London, England, and then here in New York.  Each step learning more and more about how not only television system are connected, but also how people and systems interact to bring projects to completion.
