NAB at a Glance
The convergence marketplace. The markets and technologies of the broadcast industry, including broadcasting, production, post-production, computing, telecommunications, multimedia, Internet and corporate communications are converging. NAB is a digital paradise of broadcast technologies featuring digital television, digital transmission, digital audio broadcasting, automation, digital acquisition, production and editing tools, and more. Once a year, over 100,000 industry professionals from over 136 countries gather in Las Vegas, Nevada to discuss industry topics, research and purchase the latest equipment, and develop industry contacts.
Baylor & NAB/Sony
The hard work of Dr. Corey Carbonara has made this possible. Before coming to Baylor University, Dr. Carbonara worked for SONY as a product manager for high definition television. The relationship between SONY and Baylor has resulted in numerous advantages for Baylor and its students.
What to Expect
NAB is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the broadcast industry or public relations. For one thing, everyone is there! Exhibits will showcase more than 1,400 manufactures and suppliers of the hottest equipment and tools for audio and video production, telecommunications, multimedia, satellite communications, Internet and online services, and more!
Opportunities and challenges abound, and much is expected from each Baylor student who attends. Each student will go through a series of training sessions given by NAB, SONY and Baylor faculty. These will cover product lines, marketing strategies, and goals for the show. Once in Las Vegas, the hours will be early, long, and late, but there will be some free time to rest and see a show or two. As a representative of Baylor University and SONY or the National Association of Broadcasters, each student is expected to be on his/her best behavior.
