NAB has peaks besides summit

A look at the upcoming confab

Attendees at the Digital Cinema Summit will find plenty to take in at NAB, whether their interest is in technology or the broader entertainment business.

There are numerous kudos being handed out. Former evening news anchors Tom Brokaw, Dan Rather and the late Peter Jennings will receive Distinguished Service Awards at the All-Industry Opening.

Jack Valenti will address the Television All-Industry luncheon Monday; at the same event, Regis Philbin will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.

On the technology side, the show floor will feature the Next Generation Content Delivery Showcase, which will highlight IPTV, mobile television, gaming, VOD, interactive television and more.

Among companies exhibiting at the NGCDS is Nokia, showing off its new N92, the company’s flagship mobile TV device. Company is backing the Digital Video Broadcast Handheld standard.

Bob Shallow, Nokia’s director for multimedia experiences, says, “Ultimately what we’re trying to do is educate the audience about mobile broadcast in general and about the benefits of the DVBH standard, an open standard that is going to achieve significant global scale.”

Post-Production World will feature Hughes Winborne, Oscar-winning editor of “Crash,” delivering the Sunday keynote.

Microsoft’s Phil Corman will keynote for the “Next Generation Television” Super Session on Monday.

There’s a two-day podcasting summit, a one-day conference on IPTV and another one-day conference on mobile TV.

Like last year, exhibitors and attendees will be able to follow goings-on at the show over NAB-HD, the show’s own high-definition television station. Programming will include a morning show, interviews with luminaries and a roving reporter doing live remotes.
