NewTek Brings Together Adam Carolla, Leo Laporte, Mark Fratto, and Steve Hellmuth at NAB Show 2011
NewTek will present the second annual “Broadcast Minds” event at this year’s NAB Show. Some of the most successful digital media influencers in the industry will discuss how to succeed in the new television landscape. NAB attendees will connect with the broadcast industry figures, including Adam Carolla (radio and TV personality and host of the Adam Carolla Show), Leo Laporte (“The Tech Guy” and founder of TWiT Live), Mark Fratto (associate athletics director for communications, St. John’s University), and Steve Hellmuth (executive vice president of operations and technology, NBA).
According to Laporte, what he likes about the digital revolution is its democratizing nature. “If broadcasters are willing to think out of the box and throw away their notions of what broadcasting is, they can take advantage of and profit from the digital revolution,” he said. “Anyone who has an idea they want to share and a potential audience, can produce and broadcast for themselves. This technology, along with NewTek TriCaster, allows you to get your voice heard. For me that is the most important transformation.”
At NAB, NewTek will award over $100,000 in prizes with the TriCaster-A-Day Giveaway. With NewTek TriCaster, anyone can simultaneously produce, live stream, broadcast, project, and record HD and SD network-style productions. A single operator or small team can switch between multiple cameras, virtual inputs, and live virtual sets, while inserting clips, titles, and motion graphics with multi-channel effects.
The free event, moderated by Streaming Media Editor, Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, will be held on Tuesday, April 12 at the Renaissance Hotel Ballroom beginning with a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. PT, followed by a 6:30 presentation. NAB attendees are advised to pre-register for this “must-attend” event and Q&A session.
