Videoguys NAB 2013 report

Wow! I wasn't expecting this year's NAB to be so exciting. Our industry has gotten mature and so have the products. But, from the start of our dealer meetings on Sunday, I could tell that something big was happening, not a huge tidal wave of change, but several big waves rolling in one after another that would have a dramatic impact on the future of our industry. Each of these waves on their own is interesting. When you look at the convergence that is going on it adds up to very important and powerful changes that will shape the future of content creation Click here for both Part 1: An Industry In Transition & Part 2: Top Products from the Show
