Our Vendor Partners help educate attendees
Part of the conference mandate is to educate our attendees. We ask our Vendor Partners to help us with that goal by providing an understanding of their products so our attendees can make the best purchasing choices for their specific applications. During the trade show day there will be 20 twenty minute presentations by 10 of our Vendor Partners. Vendor presentation topics will include broadcast/storage servers, editing systems, lighting equipment, video switchers, web streaming technology, studio equipment, and others. Participating vendors will conduct their presentations at the booths on the trade show floor. Each of these booths will have seating available. They are scheduled from 10:00-11:30am and will be repeated from 1:45-3:15pm. This is an opportunity to increase your knowledge of the products offered and spend time talking one on one with vendors. Details about the presentations and their schedule will be posted here as they are finalized. Visit the trade show floor map for the presentation locations.

Varto Technologies: NewTek NDI
NewTek launched Network Device Interface (NDI™), an enabling technology for live production IP workflows over Ethernet networks. NDI allows multiple video systems to identify and communicate with one another over IP, and to encode, transmit and receive many streams of high quality, low latency, frame-accurate video and audio in real time. This benefits any network-connected video device, including video mixers, graphics systems, capture cards, and many other production devices. This makes it possible to exponentially increase the number of sources available for live production switching, without directly attaching to devices, changing locations, or investing in expensive, high-bandwidth networks that simply replace SDI-based workflows.
