HP at the National Association of Broadcasters

One of my favorite technology shows to attend is the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB).  Obviously I have an interest in video and who doesn't love seeing the latest technology for broadcast TV/CATV and movie production.  This is a show I really look forward to. 


HP is a major sponsor of NAB 2013 and I’m heading there next week.   I am SO looking forward to it.  You can read more about NAB on the NAB Show website.  Some of the HP highlights at NAB are:


  • You can find HP in the South Hall, in booth SL9605.  The Exhibit Halls are open from 9 AM – 6 PM starting on Monday April 8 through Thursday April 11, closing at 2 PM on the last day.
  • HP Storage is sponsoring the Beer Garden, located between the South and Central Halls.  Stop by our booth and we’ll have daily beer garden ticket give-a-ways. 
  • HP is also the official sponsor of the NAB opening party on Monday night at the Marquee Club, Cosmopolitan Hotel from 10 PM until midnight.  It promises to be a great time!  Bring your conference badge and join us.

How can you follow along?

You can follow all the NAB action on our "Buzz page":  My friends over at will be live streaming from our HP Booth where we'll have Theater Sessions every 30 minutes.  Most of the sessions are from HP partners - I saw many of the partners last year and it's great stuff.  We'll have the live stream on our HP Storage Facebook page so check that out! 


I'll be there with Andy McCaskey from and my HP TechCast co-host from Jeffery Powers - and they will be doing lots of video interviews that we'll have up shortly after NAB so that will be another great way for you to get a sense of the show. 


One of the interviews we're going to do is with Kara Stephens, Producer at K.O.C. Productions.  She produces the show West Coast Customs - I just noticed there's a video about West Coast Customs on the HP at NAB web page so check it out!


And on Wednesday next week, Andy, Jeffery, and I will pack up and head down the strip to Mandalay Bay where we'll be live streaming from Microsoft Management Summit.  I'll tell you more about that in my next blog post.
