    From early-stage startups and edge-of-the-art media technologies to industry powerhouses debuting boundary-pushing products and technologies, a dynamic roster of nearly 1,300 exhibitors will present the forefront of innovation at the 2024 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 13-17 (Exhibits April 14-17). With 65,000-70,000 attendees from 160 countries and 575 international exhibitors from 41 countries, NAB Show is the world’s largest marketplace featuring advanced technologies and solutions from the latest gear to generative AI to ATSC 3.0 and beyond, exploring the impact of the newest tech on storytelling, business models and society as a whole.

    “As the place for all things broadcast, media and entertainment, exhibitors at this year’s NAB Show are bringing their A-game as they debut and showcase new tech that promises to revolutionize content creation, distribution and consumption,” said Eric Trabb, NAB Global Connections and Events, senior vice president and chief customer success officer. “The Show cultivates relationships and serves as a catalyst, driving discussions into next generation technologies and partnerships that drive the industry forward.”

    Now in its 101st year, NAB Show has always showcased groundbreaking technologies — from the early days of video tape to the latest advancements in areas such as robotics, AI and wireless transmission. This year’s Show grows with more than 200 new exhibitors to nearly 1,300 total, spread across 700,000 sq. ft., up 10 percent from last year. Here is a sampling of the new products that will be showcased on the show floor.
