NAB President and CEO Gordon H. Smith has made the following announcement.
Leading broadcast and cable media solution providers recently launched the NextGen Video Information Systems Alliance, a worldwide coalition of developers and manufacturers that will help accelerate the industry’s evolution toward next-generation broadcast and OTT television systems.
In a move that was not unexpected due to current pandemic conditions around the world, the annual IBC 2020 show in Amsterdam, set to take place on September 11-14, has been cancelled. In recent weeks two major exhibitors - Panasonic and Ross Video - had already cancelled their participation citing the safety of its employees. The annual conference typically hosts an average of 55,000 visitors from across the globe.
The Video Services Forum (VSF) has released new technical recommendations for its Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) Protocol Specification. RIST was developed to deliver audio and video content over the pubic Internet at low-latency.
Due to the medical emergency the country now finds itself in, this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas was postponed to later this year. If it had happened, the main themes of artificial intelligence (AI), high dynamic range (HDR) acquisition and remote production would have all been front and center, but several other technologies that bring new efficiencies in studio production and content distribution would’ve also been spotlighted.
NAB 2020 will not be rescheduled this year, the NAB has announced. Instead, the organization will begin NAB Express in April, an online initiative, and will enhance the NAB Show New York at the end of the year with additional programs and expanded participation.
