The IABM has confirmed it will have a strong presence at NAB 2016, offering its 400 member companies at the show a full range of support services. The organisation will also lead the discussion on the future of the media technology industry.

Two IABM-led events are the annual State of the Industry Conference on Monday 18 April and the Game Changer Awards on Tuesday 19 April. There will also be the IABM NAB Advance Party on Saturday 16 April, IABM technology training sessions over the weekend, two member lounges, the IABM App providing a constant steam of news from the show, and IABM.TV capturing the news. Meanwhile, IABM CTO, Stan Moote, will speak on two panels. In addition, members and non-members are invited to visit the IABM booth (N6715) to discuss their needs with the IABM team.

The IABM State of the Industry Conference (8am to 10am, 18 April – LVCC Room N235/7) will have IABM Director of Technology & Strategic Insight, John Ive, in the Chair. The conference will discuss the latest IABM Industry Index, the NAB End User Survey and some insights from the latest Global Market Valuation and Strategy Report from IABM CEO, Peter White.

Stan Moote, IABM CTO, will interview Del Parks (Senior Vice President/Chief Technology Office at Sinclair Broadcast Group). A debate on the state of the industry will be held, with panelists including Tony Emerson (Worldwide Managing Director, Media and Cable Microsoft Corporation), George Hoover (CTO, NEP), Marco Lopez (President, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand) and David Stubenvoll (Chief Executive Office and co-founder, Wowza).

On Tuesday 19 April at 5.30pm, the IABM Game Changer Awards will be presented and highlight and reward innovation at the show. The IABM's panel of 30 industry experts will be on the show floor to identify the real game-changing new products and services.

The NAB Advance Party (8pm to 11pm, 16 April – Gordon Biersch, Paradise Road) will host some 400 guests at CEO, Director, VP and Manager levels on the supply side, together with members of the press and end-user community. The Advance Party is designed to provide an informal environment for colleagues, partners and competitors to network and discover new opportunities.

Throughout the show, IABM members have free access to our two member lounges on the show floor, located at N6715 and outside C2 Exhibition All entrance.

The IABM App will keep members up to date with the news from the show as it happens, including content from IABM.TV which will be capturing all the latest news from the many member companies around the show.

Over the weekend 16 – 17 April, the IABM Training Academy will be running a course to help members understand the potential of UHD and the new HEVC codec on Sunday April 17 10am – 4pm in Room N226 at the LVCC. It will include a look at the glass-to-glass UHD workflow, and how UHD technology can play a part in HD productions to deliver higher quality results.

Peter White, CEO at IABM, said: "Over the last year, we have significantly grown the range of services and support the IABM offers to members and also dramatically boosted our regional presence with the formation of the APAC, North America and UK Councils. Our mission is to be the go-to business resource for members, and the voice of the industry worldwide. The broad range of activities planned for NAB demonstrate our absolute commitment to anticipating our members' needs and being a key force in moving our industry forward."
