2011 NAB Show in Review


        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

This year’s NAB Show was a very fast four days. The overall positive mood seemed to make the event go by much quicker. Attendance was up, exhibitors were happy, the sessions were full. In short, it was a good convention.

With the looming CAP changes, EAS was an obvious hot topic. Likewise IP anything (routing, audio, control, messaging, you name it) was a common underlying theme. HD Radio, while not in the main spotlight, had some shining moments as well.

Underlying themes related to identifying new revenue streams and ways to interact with listeners. As the media universe continues to grow and further splinter the radio listening audience, stations are finding new ways to reach listeners and preserve their revenue streams. Crowdsourcing and data services are just two of those methods.

What follows is a synopsis of the convention in new products shown on the floor and highlights of our daily photo blog. The Radio magazine Pick Hits, a tradition since 1985, are included. And be sure to watch the Pick Hits videocasts for the winners. Links are posted at RadioMagOnline.com.
