ON THE COUCH – from NAB 2014 – announcement

In addition to our regular reporting from NAB 2014 with product presentations, videos and news, we will introduce a new format this year – a talk show called “On the Couch” to be recorded at the Trump International Hotel close to the Las Vegas Convention Center, where the NAB Show takes place.

In this more laid-back atmosphere, I will talk to camera and accessories manufacturers, other well-known bloggers and filmmakers to talk about NAB trends, film productions and much more.

We will record shows throughout the NAB exhibition, which lasts from April 7-10.

This is only possible thanks to our generous sponsors B&H, Zeiss, Vitec Videocom and Tools on Air. 

Here’s our schedule so far, subject to change (and other shows to be added). Please don’t hesitate to shoot us any questions you might have for these guests! Either right here in the comments below this post, in the forum or via email.

The shows will not be broadcast live, but recorded in a multi-camera setup “direct to HDD” and put online as fast as possible after the recording wraps. Each show will last around 30 minutes.
