The 2022 NAB Show will explore the latest storytelling technologies and techniques, offering content creators an exclusive insight behind the most recent hit film and television productions.
After two years during which many events existed only virtually, the 2022 NAB Show promises that those who make it to Las Vegas will “experience what’s new” to add “virtually everything”. This renewed edition of the show is, according to the organizers, “an entirely reimagined experience” which starts with four carefully curated collections: CREATE, CONNECT, CAPITALIZE and INTELLIGENT CONTENT.
It does not stop there, as attendees will have more to discover: an all-new floor plan layout incorporating the West Hall and a first-time-ever Sunday show floor opening. There are also new Experiential Zones, new attractions and pavilions like The Streaming Experience and new featured destinations including Apple Studios and ARRI and Fuse Virtual Production. “We’ve got everything you could possibly imagine”, say the organizers, “and what’s well beyond the periphery of possible waiting.”
The 2022 NAB Show will also explore the latest technologies and techniques reinventing the storytelling process through special sessions, deep dive examinations and panel discussions. Content creators will gain exclusive insight into the creative choices and innovations behind recent hit film and television productions during NAB Show, held April 23–27 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
