Northeast Students See Latest in Cameras, Broadcasting Equipment

LAS VEGAS – Drew Dolezal, Northeast media instructor, and his students traveled to Las Vegas to attend the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention last month.

The Media Arts Club raised funds for the trip. 

The Las Vegas Convention Center, where NAB is held, is more than 2.5 million square feet where over 2,000 exhibitors demonstrate industry leading cameras, lighting equipment, broadcasting equipment, and software. More than 100,000 people attend from all over the world each year. 

Students get firsthand experience with brand new industry equipment and software (often not even released to the general population). Many students also use the opportunity to network with industry professionals. 

This trip is valuable to the students for several reasons: 

   -They see and use various types of equipment they might see in future employment.  

   -They chat with company representatives about the “how and why” of certain aspects of technology. 

   -They see emerging technology within the media field. AI/Deep Learning and Cloud Storage and computing were hot topics this year. 

   -They get to network with other professionals in media, cinema, broadcasting, journalism, postproduction fields.
