With the NAB Show 2009 opening in less than three weeks, the news this issue is dominated by preview information about what will be on display there. The press releases are coming thick and fast, and we have a busy schedule of conferences and meetings, so we look forward to bringing you a full round up after the show.

Following Thomson's announcement to divest its non-strategic operations, one invitation that has caught our attention is from Grass Valley to see more than 65 new products and product enhancements that it's introducing, including the "world’s most powerful production tool." It's this kind of BIG statement that still makes the NAB Show worth taking a long distance flight to visit!


Broadcast and professional video cameras made by Hitachi are synonymous for innovation and ultimate performance.
