IIRC, the "official" policy on the NAB show floor is no recording devices unless you have recieved press credentials, but that policy is widely ignored. I have seen hundreds and hundreds of people carrying little handycams around, taping every product in sight. I myself have often carried a small digital camera, and have never once been asked not to take a picture.

If you tried to walk in with a big ENG-style rig on your shoulder, you might get asked questions, but if it's small enough to fit in your shoulder bag, I would say don't worry about it.

First time going.

I'm giddy with anticipation! I finally decided to just bite the bullet and go. So I'm looking forward to meeting all of you out there.
Thanks Chris for the VIP code for the exhibit floor pass...funny how I didn't want to pay the twenty bucks to get in... and now that I don't have to I can justify spending hundreds on a impromtu trip to Vegas. :)
I'll be getting in Sunday and leaving tuesday afternoon, so I'll miss the FCP shindig unfortunaly....I use premiere so-*shrugs*
RED! BABY! RED!

Don't know why but I never got around to posting in this thread. I will be there from Saturday through Thursday and will be assisting Chris H. with reporting duties. Am working on a way to get video from the show back to our DVINFO folks in a timely manner. Stay tuned....

Thanks for the head-up Richard.
I do love me some swag.
Where's everyone going to be partying on Sunday or Moday night?

Well...Greg I have verizon wireless broadband on my laptop, and they have coverage in Vegas. It's only about 256kb uplink, 700kb downlink. Let me know if that will help. If the signal is not blocked that is. I also have a 60gig usb drive to hold things.

Also, how does the wireless cafe work there? Can anybody hook up?

Anyway, PM me and let me know. I'll be there tonight through next Friday.

I'm just sitting at concourse C at Dulles waiting for my flight as I write this.

Wonder if anybody is around. I'm sitting on the floor using my laptop right next to the NAB store, it's 11:36 Vegas time.

I'm at the LVCC tomorrow just long enough to pick up my badge, then heading "off campus" for the rest of Sunday. Hope you brought some comfortable shoes! See you Monday,

Hi Joe,

My flight arrives at 7:39 this evening. The wireless cafe is open to all but at peak times it's difficult to acquire an IP address. There is also some company that offers wi-fi throughout the convention center for about $5/day. I have Sprint high speed on my phone and am going to be testing it out during the show.

Greg, I've got Verizon Broadband, and it's working great, fastest I've ever seen it go. So fortunately I don't need another wireless access system, just a convenient wall outlet everyonce in awhile to recharge the battery. Heck, my hotel room is so old it doesn't have three prong support. But it's cheap and clean.

The taxi drivers warned me it will be extremely hard to get a taxi on the mornings and evenings of the conferance. Someone told me to check out the city bus system.

I'm going over to Party Gras at the Fremont Street experience. Live music, beads and booze.

Sheesh...I would have to book a room at a hotel 3.5 miles from the LVCC. Good thing I'm sleeping in mornings...

Okay, Joe. Live music, the booze--understood. Beads? :)

Beads are a part of Mardi Gras. I won't go into how they are normally obtained.
