Random notes as I sit on the casino floor editing video, going over the NAB blogs – including Lost Remote and numerous other tech sites tonight on the wifi…
Bob Barker of Price is Right fame was inducted into the NAB Hall of Fame today. I’m told he received a standing o, asked audience members to “come on down” to play some Plinko, promptly gave away fabulous cash and prizes and likely told peeps to get their pets spayed or neutered.
Other stuff from today: some people are saying the audience numbers for NAB is down. I can’t really tell the difference from year’s past.
The Associated Press is announcing mobile video. Interesting. I haven’t spoken with any vendors about wireless yet, but there are many here that offer such. Mostly spoke to people about streaming.
Talking with Adobe tomorrow about its new offerings, including flash and Media Player 1.0.
Caught up with Carlos Lovato of Tulsa-based Media Specialists, see below. He says IPTV is the big deal this week. After speaking with my friends at News9 last night, it seems another biggie is the forced digital transition coming in February.
