This week sees the National Association of Broadcasters show take place in Las Vegas. It's the place to find out what's happening in Internet broadcasting alongside other TV and film technologies.

It's Showtime!

The National Association of Broadcasters show attracts tens of thousands of visitors, does many millions of dollars in business and is a great place to find out what technology and web content will be hitting your computer screen, or HD and 3D television in the coming years.

At the show are the likes of Panasonic, Sony (showing off some 3D golf), LG and Microsoft, with keynotes from all kinds of industry folk, from directors such as James Cameron and Kevin Smith to technical or industry bigwigs from MPEG, CBS and other major players.

There is also a massive computer and Internet-based presence with the likes of Vimeo and Highwind promoting their web-based content and systems. Making a splash at the show was Apple with new pricing for its Final Cut Pro X editing software, down from US$ 999 to US$ 299, making it more accessible to video editors working in any market.

Kaltura Powers On

Kaltura's open source video platform made waves at the show with the announcement that it is being used as the backbone for Internet Broadcasting's (Ibsys') new content management system for media companies. Fox Digital Media has also signed Kaltura to power a centralized video asset management platform for the broadband video distribution needs of FNG's digital assets.
