‘SUP THIS MONTH? April Event Calendar

Spring has sprung, and ATSC meetings are sprouting up all month – more than two dozen scheduled April meetings and conference calls to be exact. 

The month builds to a crescendo at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, kicking off over the April 22-23 weekend with ATSC 3.0 sessions at the NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference. 

 

 

 

 

The four-day NAB Show officially opens Monday, April 24 with ATSC 3.0 taking center stage, both at the Next Gen TV Hub in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center and in the ATSC Pavilion at Futures Park in the North Hall.

 

 

 

 

 

ATSC 3.0 also will be a highlight of PBS TechCon 2017, April 19-21, in Las Vegas, too. The annual onramp to NAB, the PBS Technology Conference caters to anyone and everyone in public media who works in technology.
