NAB 2019 AWARD
If we had one story to tell, this would be it... In late February we decided we had to bring the Afidus camera to the NAB show, but the show was only six weeks away. NAB is the largest video and content show in North America, 2 million square feet of exhibit space, 2,000 exhibitors and 100,000 attendees. We scored a small booth space in Central Hall and spent the next weeks in furious preparation mode. We submitted the camera as Product of the Year and a few weeks before the show we were an official nominee which gave us a big confidence boost.
The show started off slow, by Noon on day one we were getting busier, then an interview and we got even more busy. More interviewers stopped by and pretty soon we were all on our toes, often with 10+ people waiting to talk to the three of us.
Fast forward to day three and beyond the point of exhaustion. The award ceremony started at 5:30, but the show ended a 6 and we were still busy. Marie was sent to check in at the award ceremony at 6:15 she called, "where are you guys?" We were on our way and Josh asked "why?" Marie said, "they want to take our picture" Josh replied, "why do they want to take our picture?" "We won and I am holding the award in my hand, get here now!"
At this point the show was beyond a success. To top it off, we were hand selected for a "Best in Show" presentation on NAB Live in front of a million viewers. We will save the story about how Marie bailed Josh out by grabbing the mic and speaking coherent words.
We've collected our interviews and press information below to share with you.
This is hands down one of our favorite interviews. The fun started as booth neighbors and Joost summed everything up well, "the camera is a perfect solution for something a lot of people do with the wrong equipment."
We had the opportunity to meet with Timothy Patterson, also known as the TradeshowGuy.
On his podcast blog we were able to share about our tradeshow experience at NAB and the product of the year.
Phone interview? Yes Please. The exposure of the Afidus ATL-200 Camera to the US market has been warmly embraced. Techstination contains a wide assortment of reviews and interviews. Technology correspondent Fred Fishkin talks about the latest trends, the people behind the products and some of the off-beat things you can find online.
First day of the NAB Show and Josh was grabbed for one of their first new product release interviews. Right from the start this camera has everybody in shock on the battery life.
Our thoughts, you bet! With the custom calendar scheduling this means less content for editors to work with. Worth it!
