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? We will have time at the end of the presentation for questions, answers, and possible debate with the audience.
