This year's NAB Show will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with conferences taking place April 14-19 and exhibits from April 16-19. The NAB show will cover the latest updates on recording, live sound and production, broadcast production, audio for film and video, sound design and mixing, music technology and more.
NAB also presents a dizzying array of product introductions, fueling the constant technological changes in the industry—from workflow to encoding to new wireless rules. Professional audio engineers, now comfortably operating in an all-digital infrastructure, need to stay on top of what’s new, what’s next and what’s real. And they need a guide that takes them beyond the products on the show floor and into the real world.
Located in the Central Hall, the Pro Audio Pit—produced in partnership with Mix, Pro Audio Review, and Pro Sound News— will feature 20-minute panel discussions on the current state of the art in numerous Pro Audio fields. These presentations will provide attendees with the high-level overview needed to efficiently navigate the latest and greatest.
