Jan Ozer: Opening Act, NAB 2013

I was the opening act for NAB 2013, speaking at at 8:00 AM on Saturday morning for the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE). The talk was on Producing for Multiple Screen Delivery and a surprisingly enthusiastic group of around 300+ broadcast engineers showed up despite the hour (you can download the handout below). Not to boast, but I’ll share a post-talk email from John Poray, the Executive Director of the SBE, who stated, “Our thanks to you! You provided a great opening for our programming. Tough to get people out at 8 am on a Saturday in LV but you garnered the largest opening crowd we’ve had since we started doing this in 1995.”


Of course, John didn’t say they left happy, but I did sell 38 copies of Producing Streaming Media for Multiple Screen Delivery at the NAB Bookstore, and the bookstore director said I would have sold many more had the books arrived on Saturday as opposed to Monday. Definitely should have paid those rush fees.
