With the 2020 NAB Show in Las Vegas being cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Broadcasters has created the NAB Show Express, which will stream live online May 13 and 14, 2020. Registration for the online event is free.
The Society of Broadcast Engineers is a presenting partner of the NAB Show Broadcast Engineering and IT Conference. As part of the online event, the SBE will present the SBE Ennes Multiplatform SuperSession. The SBE had planned a longer Ennes Workshop for the Las Vegas event, and with the shortened online program comes this one-hour SuperSession.
The SBE session will air three times on the BEIT Express channel: May 14, 2020, at noon EDT and 8 p.m. EDT, and May 15, 2020, at 4 a.m. EDT. There are three parts to the program:
• ATSC 3.0 Update: ATSC President Madeleine Noland provides an update on the continuing progress of ATSC 3.0 and various market-transition activities.
• Panel – Multiplatform is Key: Multiplatform has become a business necessity, but it’s also extremely complex. No wonder it’s been top of the must-see list at trade shows and conferences for several years. In this panel we examine what multiplatform actually means today, across creation, repurposing, management and monetization, with tangible examples. The panel is moderated by IABM’s CTO Stan Moote and considers various opportunities to simplify workflows.
• Closing Remarks: SBE Executive Director John Poray concludes the session.
The SBE NAB Show Ennes Workshop is organized by industry consultant Tom Mikkelsen and Stan Moote, chief technology officer, IABM.
Register now for the NAB Show Express, and set aside May 13 and 14 to view the presentations.
