Sometimes, the word "conference" can have negative connotations. When it comes to NAB Conferences, that can't be further from the truth! Billed as "the largest and most relevant educational program for media and entertainment professionals anywhere," some of the most fascinating conversation threads occur during the Conferences at NAB Show, where the people who are connected the most to a topic are there to inform, educate, and sometimes even entertain!

And there are so many opportunities and even a wider variety of subject matters on the "Conference Circuit" that I'm not sure that I will be able to cover them all! But I assure you – I will talk about (what I believe are) the most interesting and intriguing...

Produced in partnership with the IEEE and the SBE, the Broadcast Engineering Conference (BEC) features papers on advance media technologies, this conference covers issues relating to both opportunities and challenges in today's broadcast world.


MAP YOUR SHOW:
In six days, dozens of broadcast professionals lead dozens of conferences on a myriad of topics! From digital rights to IPTV; from 4K and 4K-to-8K to broadcast ratings systems; from the revitalization of AM radio to the advancements in digital radio; from OTT services to hybrid digital services... and so much more... including RF Boot Camp – a featured workshop that will offer basic knowledge regarding the operations of a broadcast radio or television RF plant – with all kicked-off by SBE Executive Director John Poray, who will reflect on the SBE's 50 year anniversary, and what the SBE has meant to the broadcast engineering community.

SMPTE's TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT ON CINEMA:
For filmmaking innovations, you have to attend the Technology Summit on Cinema – a whirlwind conference produced in partnership with SMPTE, featuring a stunning opening by SMPTE President and Senior Vice President of Technology at Warner Brothers Wendy Aylsworth, SMPTE Education Vice President and Senior Director of Technology Strategy at Dolby Laboratories Pat Griffis, SMPTE Executive Director Barbara Lange, and TSC Program Chair 2014, also with Dolby laboratories, David Schnuelle.

The different conferences take you from the possibilities of laser-illuminated projectors, which have jumped off the drawing board and are now in the hands of some cinema and other professional customers, to the future of movie projections and how they will be presented in a way that almost seems magical when considered with today's technology. The evolution of SMPTE and how standardization will come into play to create a new class of standards with which to follow.

We'll also hear from Jim Whittlesey, Research and Technical Ambassador of Deluxe Digital Cinema EMEA, who, along with Michael Cioni, CEO Light Iron, will discuss how much post-production has changed in the last decade, essentially merging with production to become a hybrid system of content creation.
