Simon Says to Sponsor Live NAB Show BuZZ 2018 Hosted by Larry Jordan

The National Association of Broadcasters Las Vegas show is the epicenter of conferences for the media and production industriesÔøΩ and Larry Jordan is the guru making sense of it all. This year, Simon Says joins forces with Larry Jordan and his team as they produce the hourly NAB Show BuZZ. We will transcribe and publish the podcasts with all the insights from his guest line-up of industry experts.

At Simon Says, we're committed to alleviating the most frustrating aspects of editing with AI, especially for those in media and production. We've started with transcription and turning audio into textÔøΩ quickly and accurately.

NAB 2018 takes place April 7ÔøΩ ÔøΩ12. The overall convention is a massive gathering of professionals from all corners of productionÔøΩ film, mobile, advertising, TV, radio, live events, digital, audio, AR, VR, and video.

Each day, NAB Show BuZZ will produce live shows from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., which Larry Jordan will host. Each hour features a slew of high-profile guests, including Blackmagic Design's Dan May, AdobeÔøΩs Chris Bobotis, and Avid's Alan Hoff, among many others. They will discuss new product releases, the latest trends, and, hopefully, the newest, coolest tool they just got their hands on.

Our team at Simon Says will then process the podcasts through our auto-transcription engine and Larry's team will embed the media-transcript player on their site.

Jordan will cap off the week with a live installment of his weekly video production podcast, Digital Production BuZZ.
