I'm heading to the NAB convention in Vegas on Sunday. The best way I can describe it is that it's like NAMM if there were no drummers or guitar players, and a fuck of a lot of video post editors. It has a fairly extensive pro audio section, with the caveat that the cool little boutique companies don't show up. Think "yes" to Eventide and Lexicon, "no" to Elektron, essentially.

Its main purpose, though, is video, and all the industries that revolve around same. My question is thus: I'll be more than happy to post any interesting audio stuff I come across, but the vast majority of this vast convention (it is larger than NAMM by quite a bit) is broadcast and post-related, and I was wondering what percentage of the readership of AI was interested in cool post and video production stuff, and if I should add coverage of that to my purview, at least for the two days I'm there.

So, it's up to you. Should I cover interesting post and video things I find? Or should I just stick to the pro audio side of things? There aren't going to be any audio announcements that we didn't see at NAMM. This isn't the convention where those things are done. I'll say that much. So it'll be the usual up-close-personal-hands-on touchy-feely shit I normally spout, no matter what the subject.

nice, 'composting' in FCP . The green alternative to deleting redundant media

How much of the stuff you are seeing is purely ITB, as opposed to computer+hardware, or pure hardware?
