SMPTE NY May Meeting
SMPTE NYC Section Meeting
Topic: NAB Wrapup
Location: Museum of Television & Radio
Date: Wednesday, May 8, 1996
Time: 6:30p Refreshments
7:00p Program Start
Speaker: Mark Schubin, Technological Consultant
Why, in what's supposed to be the age of tapeless recording, is Sony
introducing four new tape formats this year? Why is a Sphere better than a
Cube? is there really a 150:1 zoom lens? How about a microphone so selective
that it can be pointed like a flashlight? Is there a PCMCIA card for laptop
computers allowing on-line non-linear editing with three-hour capacity? What
about the combination softlight/refrigerator?
Whatever was or wasn't shown at the annual NAB equipment exhibition, Mark
Shubin claims to have seen it all-for 24 years. Join him as he once again
provides his personal insights into a show so big that this year, for the
first time, buses were required to get people from some exhiits to others. As
always, no questions are off limits.

As always - all are welcome. You need not be a member to attend.
