Leading figures in the digital media world will appear at the second annual Broadcast Mind event, to be presented by video and 3D animation specialist NewTek during this year’s NAB Show. The free event will be held on 12 April at the Renaissance Hotel Ballroom, adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The session will commence with a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. PT, followed by a 6:30 presentation.
Influential broadcast industry figures set to participate include: Adam Carolla, radio and TV personality and host of the Adam Carolla Show; Leo Laporte, ‘The Tech Guy’ and founder of TWiT Live; Mark Fratto, associate athletics director for communications, St. John’s University; and Steve Hellmuth, executive vice president of operations and technology, NBA. The candid ‘living room’ discussion will be moderated by Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, while guests will be invited to participate in a Q&A session.
“If broadcasters are willing to think out of the box and throw away their notions of what broadcasting is, they can take advantage of and profit from the digital revolution,” said Laporte. “Anyone who has an idea they want to share and a potential audience, can produce and broadcast for themselves. This technology, along with NewTek TriCaster, allows you to get your voice heard. For me that is the most important transformation.”
NAB attendees are advised to pre-register at newtek.com/nab.
Also at NAB, NewTek will award over $100,000 in prizes with the TriCaster-A-Day Giveaway. For more information, visit the NewTek website www.newtek.com.
