Sachtler introduced its Cine DSLR fluid head at NAB 2011.
Tomorrow, May 12th, will see the debut of the “first official online extension” of the April NAB convention using something called Virtual View.
Well that’s no more than online streaming to me, but if you didn’t get a chance to go to that hectic annual confab in Las Vegas, this is a chance to see and hear some of what you may have missed. It’s all free, which helps.
You’ll see the requisite product demos and showcases, see a few one on ones with folks like 3ALITY’s founder & CEO, Steve Schklair (the company is one of the leaders in practical, usable 3-D systems) as well as an interview with New York documentary legend Albert Maysles, who received a lifetime achievement award at the show.
Yes, you’ll have the chance for live chats with “industry thought leaders”, downloadable content within the interactive showcases, on-demand playback of recorded sessions from the NAB Show, even a “social media component” that is said to enable “seamless exhibitor and attendee engagement” if you so desperately seek such entanglements.
It’s an all day event too, that runs from 10am-6pm EST
Of course this will come across as a bit more sales pitch than the breathless result of a dogged reporter’s discovery, but you can’t dismiss that selling is the main reason that they hold the April show in the first place.
