NAB Wrap Up May 2009

May 2009 

May 2009 featured the DC Section’s annual "NAB Wrap-up" meeting, with three speakers giving an overview of the recent convention in Las Vegas. Starting off the evening, Lynn Claudy of the NAB introduced the session and provided information on one of the major broadcasting issues that was heavily evident at the show: Mobile DTV. Lynn provided technical details and photos of several possible Mobile DTV approaches. 

Next up, Intervox's Peggy Miles discussed what she found as interesting new technologies at the show .

Mark Schubin wrapped up the evening with his impressions of the show.  Schubin is a well-known television engineer, consultant and contributor to industry publications. He provided an overview of changes and developments in many areas of television technology evident at the show, including cameras, storage, lighting and distribution. Mr. Schubin highlighted particularly interesting products and added wry commentary on developments which are not always what they seem.

Many thanks are due to Graham Jones and the NAB for regularly providing facilities and refreshments.
