Breaking News from NAB 2012

16 Apr

After a weekend of press conferences from the major players, there does not appear to be any major groundbreaking new technology or merger & acquisition news coming from the exhibitors or show floor. WhIle both 3D stereoscopic and cloud computing continue to emerge as new technologies, there does not appear to be the degree of interest from end users yet to drive demand significantly. This in spite of the many glasses-free 3D options shown and the first US presentation of a 200-inch, glasses-free 3D projection system as well as a presentation by James Cameron on  increasing revenue with 5D.  On the cloud computing side, supporters and the exhibitors at the Cloud Computing Pavilion are pushing the notion that broadcasters, programmers and studios all need cloud-based solutions for their post-production, transcoding, storage and delivery requirements.
