Is this not a great business to be in? Hard to believe not to long ago that the 2017 NAB was wrapping up. Officially, the National Association of Broadcasters tabbed the attendance at 103,443. Which after twenty something NAB shows sounds and feels about right. But before we get into some of the cool new products we looked at, some perspective and analysis is definitely in order.
So before we get to our illustrious winners, I think providing a little background is in order. When the ProductionHUB team set out to chose our Award of Excellence Winners it seemed like such a simple task. Slam dunk, 1, 2 3. Hour to pick the winners tops right? That would be such a resounding NO. Everyone (including me) in that room fought tooth and nail to do one thing. That one thing was to get it right. So after a lot of arguing, persuading, and flat out shouting at each other we had our list. Wasn’t easy or very pretty but when the dust settled there it was. There was so many solid products out there, and I won’t lie we all had our own favorites. But that didn’t matter. So,some four arduous hours later we were done. Best of the best. Let’s go!
Well, that didn’t take long. Atomos dropped an early announcement prior to the show open. The calibrated Sumo 19” Recorder/Monitor/Switcher

As I looked out of my office window this morning at the raging snowstorm currently hammering New England, it occurred to me that NAB 2017
is right around the corner! I hope you will have your best walking/running shoes ready because this year's NAB is shaping up to be a real whopper of a show. All preliminary indications tell me that this could be the year of some exciting new breakout products and as always the continued refinement of existing products. Someone who knows me asked, “Are you excited about NAB?” Guess I couldn’t hold back my enthusiasm for one of the greatest technology showcases going when I said “Heck ya!"
