We’re dusting off our blue suede shoes, packing our bags and are ready to hit the road for the NAB 2016 Show in Las Vegas! Will you be joining us? This will be our 5th appearance at the conference, and trust me when I say that it gets better every year! Especially since we are now a part of the IBM family, this time around is already turning out to be one for the ages, we cannot wait to show you what we have in store.
Members of the Ustream team will be onsite and are looking forward to meeting you at the Ustream booth #SU11413. Book a meeting to speak with us, or stop by during our happy hour on Wednesday April 2oth between 5:00p until when the expo floor closes, and be one of first 100 visitors to receive a custom etched “Ustream at NAB 2016” commemorative beer pint or wine glass that you can take home and cherish for years to come. We will also be available at the IBM Video Cloud booth #SL3305 to answer any questions you may have about Ustream’s powerful video technology and how our services fit into the IBM Video Cloud unit. While you are there, make sure to catch one of our daily Ustream theater presentations at 4/18 @ 5:30p, 4/19 @ 1:30p, 4/20 @ 9:30a & 4/21 @9:30a.
Ustream + IBM are planning a lot of great sessions, but there is more to see at NAB. Check out some of the sessions that we are excited for that give you a sneak peek into the direction that the broadcasting industry is headed. Here are some of the talks we are looking forward to at NAB this year that the live streaming community shouldn’t miss:
Broadcast Minds™: Where Today’s Content Leaders Discuss Tomorrow’s Trends
Monday, April 18 | 4:30p – 6:00p
- This session is presented by NewTek, manufactures of the TriCaster encoder, who are bringing together IP leaders in order to discuss where the broadcast industry might be headed in the future. The segment will include looking at today’s IT technology before looking toward where live production might shift in the years to come.
Cisco Presents – Media in a World of Exponential Technology Advances
Tuesday, April 19 | 12:30p – 1:30p
- Produced in sponsorship with Cisco, this panel attempts to predict disruptions that will occur to transform the media landscape, similar to the drastic change that occurred to the camera market where consumer friendly video cameras continue to improve in both quality and decrease in size. This panel is a bit more media focused, but there is a high probability the discussion will be relevant to broadcasters outside of this industry.
4K, UHD, HDR and More – The Future of Video
Tuesday, April 19 | 2:30p – 3:30p
- Sponsored by Ericsson, this super session looks at how the current ramp up toward improved video quality is shaking out at the consumer level. It then dives into a panel featuring people from production houses, agencies, broadcasting, and manufacturing who forecast where video is headed in the future.
We look forward to seeing you there, and in the meantime VIVA LAS VEGAS!
