Breaking News – Another Vendor Pulls Out of NAB

FilmLight is skipping the big Las Vegas event in April.  "With many of our customers having already indicated that they may not be attending NAB, we have decided to concentrate on taking our technology directly to them. Recent key orders in the US, Asia, Middle East, and Europe validate this decision to be the right one for this year," said Mike Grieve, FilmLight’s sales director.  The “Broadcast Now” article reports Apple, Quantel, and Red Digital Cinema have removed the world’s largest convention of broadcasters from their 2009 budgets.

I find it ironic NAB is also planning an early event at Pebble Beach, California called the NAB Futures Summit.  For three days, March 22-24, the National Association of Broadcasters and a number of supporting vendors are asking television executives to come to Southern California to discuss and learn how to position themselves for success in this economy.
