So let the days events begin and at the same time say “goodbye to NAB 2018!”


This year is about delivering improved IP work flow, says NewTek @newtekinc founder and Chairman, Tim Jenison to Ryan Salazar at the<span class= #NABShow @nabshow" width="209" height="209" />I had a very interesting conversation with Tim Jenison founder and Chairman of NewTek about improving the IP workflow and transit protocol. NewTek’s complete multi-camera production systems provide powerful capabilities including video and audio mixing, live encoding and streaming, virtual sets, automation, and more. Today, their systems are leading the way for broadcasters and video facilities to bridge their transition to IP-based workflows. With the NewTek NDI™ protocol, our innovative Network Device Interface technology, you can make the move to an IP-based workflow with production equipment you may already own.
