Page 3 of 43 2 POST APRIL 2018 EDITOR'S NOTE s this issue went to print, the Post team was also hard at work tying up our plans for the annual NAB show in Las Vegas. We are excited to announce that Post TV will be streaming live to Facebook at this year's show, beginning at 10am on Monday, April 9th. Our goal is to deliver as much news from the show floor as possible — as it happens. Tune in at the Post magazine Facebook page to hear from representatives from throughout the post industry, including those from MTI Film, Umedia, Fortium Technologies, Telestream, Firefly, Facilis Technology, Killer Tracks, Panasas, Maxon, Western Digital, G—Technology, Digital Anarchy and others, as they stop by the Post booth (SL9005) to share their NAB news. Post will also be delivering e-newsletters each morning of NAB, reporting on new product and technology announcements. More than 200 companies will exhibit for the first time at this year's show, including Sohonet, Audinate, Backblaze, LumaForge and StreamShark. The convention will also feature new technology-focused areas on the show floor. The Podcasting Pavilion, for example, will house companies that provide tools necessary to create and commercial- ize audio content, while the Immersive Storytelling Pavilion will include companies in- volved with the development and monetization of virtual, mixed and augmented media. Off site, Avid is hosting its fifth annual Avid Connect conference at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel, from April 6th through 8th, which will follow an "Innovation in Action" theme, allow- ing attendees to learn directly from creative, technical and business peers. And the Las Vegas SuperMeet will take place on Tuesday, April 10th at the Rio Hotel, providing mem- bers of the post and broadcast communities with opportunities to learn about the latest technology trends, as well as network and share industry news in a social setting. There's no shortage of things to do, so be sure to plan your schedule in advance in order to maximize your time at NAB. And try not to get distracted by those slot machines! eading into the NAB Show in Las Vegas, there's always so much to talk about. For instance, the more than 200 first-time exhibitors joining the 1,700-plus companies that will be on the show floor. Among the ranks of Sony, Blackmagic Design, Canon, Adobe and Avid are debuting companies Sohonet, Qencode, Audinate, Backblaze and more. And, of course, there's always the latest technology advances in 4K and 8K, cloud-based storage and VR/AR and 360-degree content. The new Baselight 5 from FilmLight, for exam- ple, has a host of new features, with new functionality that supports 360/VR. Boris FX, too, is rolling out new features in its Mocha VR. Avid, during its fifth annual Avid Connect event on April 8th, will be tackling the subject in a few different VR/AR specific sessions. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention the huge presence of women at this year's show — more than what I could remember. Maxon is featuring an all-female lineup of users speak- ing at its booth, including Robyn Haddow, freelance Fictional User Interface (FUI) designer; Julia Siemón, School of Visual Arts instructor and director and Penelope Nederlander, art director, motion graphics animator and digital artist. The NAB Show and Women in Film & Video (WIFV) will co-host the third annual #GalsNGear event, on April 10th, to encourage networking and provide visibility and training for women in technology and content creation. Aside from networking, there are also panel discussions and equipment demos, and a mix of women in production and post from Netflix, AR Wall, Sim, Digital Anarchy and more, sharing insights on AI, VR, post workflows and more. NAB will also feature a panel of leading women in media to discuss the impact of dis- ruptive forces on audience, revenue and the workforce on April 9th, with Amy Emmerich, Refinery29; Muriel De Lathouwer, EVS; Ginny Morris, Hubbard Radio and Marian Pittman, Cox Media Group. As always, Post will report from the show floor with on-camera interviews for Post TV, on our Website (, in our e-newsletters and reveal our annual "Post Picks" award winners and honorable mentions in our May issue. See you at the show!
