This week, senior members of the VITAC staff are at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas. The conference, which is held once a year, is the largest showing of electronic media of all forms, and boasts 93,000 attendees representing 193 countries each year. This year there will be over 1,550 exhibitors from every corner of the electronic media industries — the perfect opportunity for VITAC to see in person the newest tech developments in broadcasting. It is also a great opportunity to spread the word about VITAC’s newest and most exciting captioning capabilities. The VITAC representatives are Chief Business Development Officer Doug Karlovits, Chief Technology Officer Dwight Wagner, SVP Sales Darryn Cleary, and Engineering Manager Chuck Wall. Please feel free to say hello!
This year, VITAC is providing Spanish captions for Teradek, a manufacturer of groundbreaking devices for wireless video, who are streaming live video in English from the conference. The live-translated and captioned broadcast can be seen here, on the Ustream website.
