In three and a half days at NAB, the Digital Production Buzz team created more than twelve hours of audio and video programming.  Whew...

I have two blogs looking back at this year's NAB Show, along with several new videos.  All the details are below.

We also have winners in our Editing Truths contest, along with revised Top Three lists.

I'm gonna get this newsletter published, then I'm gonna take a nap.


Here are the latest winners from our "Editing Truths For Better Living" contest. It doesn't cost anything to enter, and, in fact, studies have shown that entering can actually make you feel better.  Sharing the pain helps...

It's always fun trying to explain the difference between Raw media and transcoded media to a producer.  Over the phone.

Dan Crow
From producer: "I'm about halfway through the cut and I am worried about these open ended story lines."

Tedd Kidd
Any employee identified in a corporate video is destined to be fired as soon as the video is duplicated or released.

Eko Nobel
(From a client who didn't attend the shoot): "I don't like the hair style, can you change the hair style?"

The NAB Show is famous for showcasing the latest technology. However, this week's interview is with the person that got much of our industry started: Tim Jenison.

Tim invented the Video Toaster, then went on to found NewTek.  As I looked around NAB, I saw hundreds of companies that all owe their existence to Tim's ideas.

This is an interview you owe to yourself. Listen to it here.

I have two new blogs that look back on NAB, plus a variety of video clips that we shot at the show.

With the new releases from Adobe, along with a variety of exciting new plug-ins, we have plenty of new stuff to talk about in coming weeks.

I've also updated our Top Three lists, just so you know what other people are looking at.

The Gear We Used At The 2013 NAB Show  
In this short video, I show the audio gear we used for our coverage at the NAB Show.

Our video equipment, which I didn't mention, was a JVC HM-150 camera, a Countryman headset mic and a Shure SM-58 hand mic, both feeding a Sennheiser ew100 wireless system.

A Look Back At the 2013 NAB Show

Larry Reflects: The Magic of NAB    
I've always thought trade shows are magical - from bare walls, to a functioning city, back to bare walls - in only seven days.

Here are my reflections on how much the industry has changed since I first got started. And how much it all means to me.

Owen Smith Checks Out the NAB Show    
Comedian Owen Smith has never attended the NAB Show -- even though he's a self-proclaimed geek; along with performer, author, and producer.

So, we invited him to join us this year and allow us to watch him discover the show.
