Broadcast Beat Magazine 2017 BroadcastAsia Special Edition - Page 3

FROM THE EDITOR Welcome to our BroadcastAsia2017-issue of Broadcast Beat Magazine! Exciting things are happening around The Beat these days - Broadcast Beat has become the go-to news and information source about the happenings in the broadcast and studio industries! From Instagram to Twitter and all things in-between, our posts form the “site to see” for anything and everything in the industry. In case you didn’t know, we just finished covering The 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas! For the second year, we streamed NAB Show LIVE! direct from the M.E.T. 360 Studio in the heart of the event – The Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center! We had a BLAST and we met many old friends and amazing new friends! “Imagination Unbound” is the theme of this year’s show in the gorgeous city of Singapore, being the must attend international event for the pro-audio, film and broadcasting industries! I always enjoy Asia’s con- vention, because much of the technology now demanded worldwide hails from there! In many respects, Asia has it first, and then it trickles to the rest of the world! Professionals from Broadcast, Production, Post Production, Digital Media, Entertainment, Houses of Worships, System Integrators, Rental Houses and Education will be rubbing elbows at this momentous event! UHD is in the air (as well as on the air) and has literally pounded in stakes, set-up shop and raised the bar higher for a new broadcast standard. UHD is really coming into its own, and the progression is amazing. I expect that – sooner, rather than later – we’ll ALL be bow- ing to this newest media technology! Taking it all in at shows like BroadcastAsia2017 shows just how fast it is insinuating its way into our culture. In addition to this magazine and our up-and-coming coverage of the show, we’ve recorded a huge number of show videos containing some of the most interesting industry insider interviews you’ll only find exclusively at Broadcast Beat! Not only are they LOADED with great info, I speak with everyone from CEO’s and engineers to people who are actually in the field with hands-on the actual creative process/ creation! VERY exciting – you’ve GOT to hear these people and the fascinating tidbits of knowledge and expertise they share with us!
