Recap: NAB 2017

About two weeks ago, Las Vegas was once again the host city to the world’s largest annual convention encompassing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology, the National Association of Broadcasters (or NAB for short). With over 103,000 attendees from 161 countries and 1,806 companies exhibiting, this year’s show was definitely a whirlwind of activity!

The new technology being showcased at the show each year always manages to impress and fascinate us. This year in particular the drone technology seems to have expanded by leaps and bounds, and was certainly eye catching when there were live flight demos going on. Some booths that we frequent every year because we know they are going to be showcasing great new toys are GoPro and Sound Devices.

On the third day of the show, our CEO Brian Nimens sat down with Larry Jordan from Digital Production BuZZ to talk about Sound Ideas, releasing new sound effect libraries each month, and how we go about making those sound effects.

The show was a great success for the Sound Ideas team; our new booth location in the Central Hall provided us with a lot of great opportunities. We want to thank everyone who was able to attend and stop by our booth! We hope you thoroughly enjoyed your visit as much as we did.

The team here can’t wait until NAB 2018!
