vMix at NAB Show 2017
Hi folks! Today we’re going to talk about NAB Show 2017 in Las Vegas. This 4 day convention sees over 100,000 attendees grace the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center! Anyone who is anyone attends this show which is also the world’s largest broadcasting convention. The show spans 4 MASSIVE halls and provides you with enough walking steps on your Fitbit to last you for the entire month. One recommendation- wear comfortable shoes…no ifs or buts.
vMix will be attending NAB for the 5th year and we have a booth in the South Lower Hall alongside some of the industry heavyweights. We’re in booth SL 4620 so it’s not too far from the front!
What’s happening at the vMix booth?
vMix 19 and vMix Call!
What will be on offer from vMix for NAB 2017?

What to do at NAB!?
As this is the largest broadcast show in the world, there is plenty to see and do. Every company to do with professional broadcasting, cameras, streaming, capture devices, converters, lenses, wireless tech, VR etc etc will be there at NAB. It means it’s a great opportunity to see products first-hand that you may have only read about. It also means you can ask the actual manufacturers any questions directly. You can also see products that aren’t even available yet or products that are in the works. vMix was once a small company with a tiny booth, so maybe you’ll discover the next big thing and get in early!
There are also PLENTY of giveaways so you might find yourself walking away with a new camera or drone or even a vMix registration key! Oh or a mousepad or 10! Also, check out the ATOMOS booth, they always have something spectacular happening there in the Central Hall.
Pre-planning is a necessity. It’s so easy to find something cool and spend the next hour looking at it. Mapping out who you want to see and where they are located will allow you to get everything done and help you to not miss out. Do some research while you’re on your way or waiting in an airport and map out the locations of all of your visits. You don’t quite realise just how big the convention centre is until you see it. Speaking of people to see…
