by: David Titmus

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show is going on now at the Las Vegas Convention Center in, where else, Las Vegas, Nevada. The show is the ultimate event for the media, entertainment, and technology industries, showcasing innovations and new solutions for professionals looking to create, manage, and deliver content on any platform.

NAB Show floorThe annual conference is the largest showing of electronic media of all forms, boasting more than 102,000 attendees from 160 countries. This year there will be over 1,700 exhibitors from every corner of electronic media — the perfect opportunity for VITAC to learn about the industry’s newest tech trends and developments, and to bring those new ideas and solutions back to our valued clients and customers.

The NAB Show also is a great venue to spread the word about VITAC’s newest and most exciting captioning capabilities.

At last year’s show, VITAC unveiled VITAC Power Connect™ — a first-of-its-kind service that hardwires continuous programming from real-time captioners to live broadcasting encoders, eliminating the threat of captioning loss due to ISP outages and modem drops.

This year, we’re showcasing VITAC Control Tower™, a new cloud-based component of Power Connect that allows easy connections between captioners and customers. With Control Tower, our customers and operations team can schedule programming, assign technical specifications, view performance and compliance dashboards, and monitor the captioning process in real time to provide the most reliable delivery of captions.

So please do stop and say “hello” if you see us on the show floor and want to learn a bit more about captions, the variety of services we offer (including Control Tower), or the newest trends in the captioning industry!
