JB&A’s Studio Workflow Solution
We're taking our shows on the road and going live On-Air at the Pre-NAB Technology Event. Our team will be shooting, editing, creating, and distributing content live on the floor. Every hour, on the hour, watch live as we interview different manufacturers. They’ll be putting their products on the bench, explaining new technology, or updating us on new releases.

Explore the workflow solution that we use each week during our in-studio tapings. Watch our engineers cut the show live -- then, migrate over to our editing station to see the show come full circle to the distribution stage.

About Our Set Up

"I want to reiterate that I think the pre-NAB event is a great function for your company to hold. I really felt like we were able to look at a number of products that we were interested in and to feel as if we were getting more personal interaction with the representatives. I'm sure we received more valuable information in that setting than was possible on the NAB show floor. The other great thing was interacting with other industry professionals and being able to share interaction with the vendors presentations...." | David Emenheiser, President, Starbright Media, LLC
