|The Las Vegas Convention Center after NAB tear-down.|
I went to my first NAB twenty years ago, when I was working for Avid Technology. At Avid, it was my responsibility to make sure that all 200+ systems were set up and working properly before the start of the show. This was not the most relaxing position to be in. Sometimes the hardware just didn’t want to cooperate. The worst years were the ones when the computer maker decided to reduce the number of card slots, requiring us to strap on a trouble-prone expansion chassis. My stomach is turning just typing about it.

In next weeks blog, I'll discuss the announcements I found to be the most exciting from NAB 2013. I’ll be interested to hear readers impressions of the biggest announcements this year. Below is one of the early NAB trade-show videos I worked on for Avid Technology. In fact, that's me in the audio section of the video.
