The NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference has been a unique educational event for 70 years at the NAB Show. It features technical presentations that focus on the most relevant issues facing radio and television broadcasters. From the pioneering days of our industry, the conference has provided a forum where broadcasters and allied professionals can meet, interact, explore new technologies and discover solutions to many of their challenges. The conference is produced in cooperation with the Society of Broadcast Engineers and is developed with the assistance of an industry advisory committee.
This year, we have modified the name of the conference to highlight the evolution of broadcast technology. The new file-based IT centric environment has been embraced by broadcasters and will continue to be core to broadcast operations for the foreseeable future. Our new conference name recognizes this and sets the stage for the future.
The Call for Papers for the Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference is now open. Technical paper proposals are welcome from anyone who has fresh ideas related to myriad issues important to broadcasters. The conference is not an opportunity for companies to pitch products, but rather an immersive educational opportunity for broadcast professionals to learn from world-class experts in their fields. A web-based paper proposal submission portal is available at www.nabshow.com/speakers.
The conference takes place at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 22-27.
