(rock music) - [Voiceover] Each year, the National Association of Broadcasters Show in Las Vegas is the biggest candy store for content creators, producers, and investors from around the globe. As companies like Adobe, Sony, DJI, and more, bring their latest and greatest to the show floor. Or should we say show floors? With more than 1700 exhibitors covering a square footage equivalent to almost 20 football fields, nearly 100,000 attendees representing 45 different countries flock to NAB for one thing.
Las Vegas! (beeping) Your day might begin in the south hall, greeted by impressive displays ranging from cameras and lenses, like Blackmagicdesign and RED Digital Cinema, to post-production solutions like Adobe and EditShare. The central hall is all about production and audio. Cameras, lights, microphones, and more. There are enormous displays of gear from Sony, Panasonic, and Canon, to small independent manufacturers, showing everything from lighting, camera rigs, cables, jibs, dollies, and drones.
Lots and lots of drones. The north hall is home to the management and systems area with the kind of infrastructure you'll need to build out a studio or a broadcast station. The floored NAB can be an overwhelming experience, but the show is more than just exciting toys for production and post. It's about community and education too, and in our next videos, we'll show you why a massive show like NAB is still an incredible place to learn new skills, as well as meet and network with new professionals from all over the world.
