FXhome has been to Las Vegas a couple of times already, when Schwar has attended the PMA photography show.

This month we're heading out there again for the NAB Show and by 'we' I mean the entire office! The five of us will be heading Stateside on Sunday, blitzing the show for a couple of days, then returning to the UK on the Wednesday. It's going to be intense.

NAB is where all the big broadcasting companies show off their stuff, from scheduling software all the way through RED cameras to the most advanced visual effects packages on the market. It's not just about the exhibitions, though, as there's also a packed schedule of conferences and workshops discussing the cutting edge of broadcasting and 'new media'.

The whole office needed to go because there's so much going on. Tim and Jack will be checking out all the latest tech and comparing notes with some exceedingly clever people in the lectures, Josh is jumping from one high level meeting to another, Lucy is investigating all kinds of new product opportunities and Simon will be finding out how to make the most of social networking and checking out the latest gear from the top camera manufacturers.

We'll try to post news from the show as we go, although this will depend on what kind of Internet access we can scrounge. At the very least you can expect semi-regular updates on the FXhome twitter.

Anybody else going to be attending the show?

DUDE, I thought Jack was dead!

Anyone who doesn't see the sarcasm misunderestimates me.

I think we're just about back to normal. smile

We'll have a full NAB/Vegas report in a week-or-so. I'd like to do it sooner, but I'm disappearing into the wilds of England for a rural holiday tomorrow and won't be able to finish the write-up until I get back. I promise it'll be a good read when it is ready, though!

This is a wonderful opinion. The things mentioned are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.

It is indeed a wonderful opinion (yours or theirs by the way?).

I love it when people get all unanimous. It makes me feel gooooooood.
