NAB 2005 Sports Packed Halls with Plenty to See By John Virata This year's NAB seemed to be a busier show than last year.

There was a lot to be seen and the noise level (literally and figuratively) in the halls reached peak levels. ...Read More »
JamSync's KK Proffitt By Frank Moldstad Eight years ago, a new kind of studio moved into Nashville's famous Music Row, taking over a 1920s Tudor-style house and transforming it into the city's first surround sound production house.

Roundup: Mac Rules at NAB By Dave Nagel If there's one question on the mind of every Macintosh creative professional right now, it's, "Did you strike it rich on your trip to Vegas last week, Dave?" No, I didn't, dear reader. (But thanks for asking.) Interesting story though: While I was stumbling around the streets of Las Vegas, I somehow found myself in the environs of the convention center there, where I discovered there was a little event happening called NAB 2004. Thinking it might be a good place to grab some free food, I secured myself a press pass in the usual fashion and headed on in. Long story short, there was actually very little free food inside.
