The 2024 NAB Show in Las Vegas (April 13-17) promises to be a transformative experience for media professionals. New categories for Broadcast Engineering and IT Conference like "Generative AI" and "Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) In Broadcasting" reflect the industry's evolving priorities shaping the future. As the premier annual gathering, NAB Show serves as a microcosm of this dynamic landscape, showcasing groundbreaking technologies, emerging trends and offering a glimpse into the possibilities of tomorrow.
The 2024 NAB Broadcast Engineering & Information Technology (BEIT) Conference schedule is out! It’s always great to finally hit publish on the schedule so that industry technologists can start planning out their time in Las Vegas at NAB Show.
“Let’s do more in 2024!” is the mantra Sam Matheny set for the new year back on January 1. The Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, was basically the “starting gun” of the new work year. The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) reports that 135,000+ people attended this year, up from 115,000 last year. This is solid double-digit growth and puts the pandemic firmly in the rearview mirror.
We wanted to know what technologists in our industry are excited about and expect or hope to see in 2024, so we asked the NAB Technology staff and a few other luminaries in the industry if they had anything to share. They did. This compilation of predictions is our way to wrap up 2023 by looking forward to 2024.
On November 17, 2023, Humber College’s Broadcast–Broadband Convergence B²C Lab, in collaboration with NAB, hosted a PNT focused seminar that introduced and demonstrated Broadcast Positioning System (BPS).

The National Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) is a technical standards-setting body cosponsored by NAB and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). In October, the NRSC’s three subcommittees met in New York in conjunction with NAB Show New York 2023 and each adopted a new document, which have now all been published on the NRSC website and may be downloaded free of charge.
