Well, it turns out I was right. The highlight by far at the 2014 NAB Show was undoubtedly 4K video. Just as expected, 4K video dominated the media coverage of the event as Sony and others offered new cameras capable of shooting in Ultra HD. While filmmakers have been using 4K video in movies here and there, the same could not be said about TV broadcast, until now. Television is quickly catching up to Ultra high def standards in the movies now that there is more hardware to shoot 4K with.
Another interesting product that was revealed at the 2014 NAB show was the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. The product is essentially a camera strapped to a mini helicopter, or in common terms, totally awesome. For just under $1300 you can own one of the incredible machines in case you need a drone strapped to a camera.
While there is way too much to include in a brief blog post of the 2014 NAB show, 4K was the clear winner in terms of consumer interest and media coverage. I can’t even imagine what’s to come of the event next year.
