Broadcast Beat Magazine 2018 BroadcastAsia Special Edition - Page 3

FROM THE EDITOR Welcome to our BroadcastAsia2018-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 2018 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! 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! I always enjoy Asia’s convention, because much of the technol- ogy now demanded worldwide hails from there! In many respects, Asia has it first, and then it trickles to the rest of the world! 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 BroadcastAsia2018 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! Remember that as you enjoy this issue to keep a browser open to the Editor In Chief Ryan Salazar, Senior Editor Curtis Chan, Production Editor Erica Lowther, Eastern US & International Sales Manager Gary Rhodes, Western US Sales Manager Jeff Victor, Broadcast Beat website for our coverage of the Show itself! Hopefully, we’ll see you there! If not, be sure to stay blogged-in for all of the latest news and views! All my best, Ryan Salazar Broadcast Beat Magazine • • 3
