NAB 2019 Recap

April 17, 2019

Every Story Starts Here.

Held every April in Las Vegas, the NAB Show is the world’s largest annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms. Exhibitors range across a large spectrum of technologies - audio, video, content delivery/management, virtual/augmented reality, broadcasting solutions across all media, and the latest and greatest in IP infrastructure.

Attending the event on Dale's behalf were Joe Prout, Joel Guilbert, and Eric Eldredge.

Some of the new and interesting things we saw on the show floor:

Sound Devices unveiled their new Scorpio portable recording system.

Studio Technologies rolled out a new group of products, with features aimed at the burgeoning eSports market.

Bose introduced their new and improved SoundComm B40 intercom headset, built off of the same successful technologies as the prior B30.

Telos unveiled the Infinity Link gateway, allowing the Infinity intercom system to access AES67 networks.

Pliant Technologies had two new announcements - the MicroCom intercom system and the FleXLR headset format adapter system.

Shure showed the new TwinPlex microphone line - a series of slim, rugged lavalier models for demanding field or on-air applications.

iZotope announced the acquisition of Exponential Audio, makers of some of the best reverbs in the broadcast and post world. Now available at Dale!

Linear Acoustic showed two new exciting processors - the LA-5291 Dolby Audio codec and the ISC Upmax V Immersive Soundfield Controller.

Studio Technologies is releasing a series of new Dante-based broadcast and intercom products with features geared to the burgeoning eSports market.

Zaxcom introduced three neat new models: the Nova field recorder, URX100 receiver, and ZMT3-X transmitter.

We have now taken on dealership of Trinnov Audio's professional products, makers of monitoring solutions in broadcast and post-production studios.

Sennheiser showed a prototype of their new AMBEO Sports Microphone Array, an immersive microphone setup for on-field multichannel audio capture.

Roland's new VR-1HD video console is a powerful, cost-effective video streaming console designed for webcasting - ideal for indie content creators, videocasting, live streams, schools, worship services, corporate, and much more.

We were highly impressed with the Merging Technologies Anubis audio interface, which will have uses well beyond the realm of broadcast!


We saw a lot of other great technologies and innovations on display in the show halls - check out our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for more! We've also uploaded a series of informative videos to our YouTube page.

Joel Guilbert shares his thoughts on the show: "NAB 2019 was a decidedly optimistic show. While “immersive audio” has been an oft-bandied about buzzword for years, it’s actual future now seems cemented. With content providers dedicated to offering ever-expanding amounts of Dolby Atmos equipped material; the tools to help create this material are arriving. With real-life ATSC 3.0 and AC4 encoders coming to market this technology is no longer a conceptual exercise."

Dale Pro Audio remains committed to being a leading provider of solutions for the Broadcast and Field Audio markets since 1956.
