It's a full house at the Fusion of New Media & Storytelling Keynote on Sunday
As Roger and I wait for the doors to the NAB Exhibition Hall to open tomorrow morning at exactly 9am we are thinking about what may be the star of the show. Some new software update like CS7, some new camera, a plug-in that makes your editing life easier or a piece of gear you never knew you needed?

While Apple is trying to salvage sthe FCP X debacle of 2011 with continuing small updates that bring back some features found in earlier versions, Adobe is blasting ahead with user inspired upgrades that make a great suite of programs even better. Hopefully, the long anticipated but yet unannounced 2013 MacPro will bring Apple back to the good graces of many of their pro users who have been wanting a substantial update to the aging Mac desktop tower line-up.
Our starting plan for tomorrow is to march right through the Central Hall to the South Lower Hall to the Adobe booth to watch them demo the new software for each program in the suite. We'll then get back to the Central Hall and check out any new cameras for the videojournalist/small budget filmmaker. We might get sidetracked along the way. :)
Early night tonight, we need to rest up for the big day tomorrow.
