TV Magic Announces Presenters for NRB Tech Lab

SAN DIEGO — Feb. 7, 2007 — Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic today announced that broadcast technology companies including Apple, JVC, Grass Valley, Panasonic, and Sony will be hosting Tech Lab demonstrations at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention & Exposition, which runs from Feb. 17-20 in Orlando, Fla.

The Tech Lab, presented by the NRB and TV Magic for the third consecutive year, serves as a unique venue in which attendees can explore the latest video, audio, and new media technologies; participate in educational sessions; and learn from the experts through lectures and roundtable discussions. A series of half-hour vendor demo sessions are scheduled to take place over the course of the NRB exhibition. The Tech Lab at NRB 2007 will emphasize new production technologies including HD systems and tapeless recording products, as well as distribution techniques such as podcasting and media delivery over the Web.

Leading vendors will be a part of the Tech Lab, which will be open throughout the exhibition for hands-on demonstrations at individual vendor booths. More information about participating vendors is available online at www.nrbconvention.org.

“It‘s great to be a part of the Tech Lab at NRB again this year,” said TV Magic President Stephen Rosen. “There is such a breadth and depth of options for ministries looking to improve their communications through broadcast media, and the demonstrations scheduled at the Tech Lab promise to educate attendees on the potential of today‘s forward-looking technologies. This unique opportunity enables religious broadcasters to see firsthand the types of solutions they can implement in their own production and broadcast workflows to enrich the experience for their congregations, whether in their home facilities or over platforms including radio, television, the Internet, and even portable media.”
