NAB ShowIn April iBeta visited the NAB Show 2017 (National Association of Broadcasters) in Las Vegas, NV.  Since we work more and more with streaming and connected media products for our clients, it was a good opportunity to see emerging technologies and to network with potential future clients.

There was a big focus on virtual reality and 360 Video, but only time will tell which of these technologies will become a staple in our lives, and which will fade away just like the only briefly hyped Google Glass.

We observed a potential shift away from HD to 4K and the inclusion of HDR (high dynamic range) to improve fullness of color, but with the emerging 8K technology, I wonder if 4K will become merely a short-time bridge to 8K.
