On Tuesday, May 3, 2016 Michigan NATAO & ACM members came together to attend four relevant discussion for people working in the broadcast or media industry. Session were held during the MAB Great Lakes Broadcasters Conference & Trade Show at the Lansing Center in Lansing, MI.
Our first session started the day off with a round table discussions on SD to HD: Digital Migration from Shooting to Playback moderated by Deborah Guthrie & Lynn Meikle. Our next session was a A Presentation on the Michigan Uniform Video Franchising Act by State Representative Bill LaVoy. Representative LaVoy, who represents Michigan’s 17th House District, provides a unique perspective as a legislator who has served 14 years as the executive director of Monroe Public Access Cable Television (MPACT). We then took a break to attend the Main Luncheon & Michigan Student Broadcast Awards. After lunch our next session was The Monster of Digital Archiving presented by Kay Gregg from Access Fort Wayne. She gave the group many helpful tips and tricks for audio and video archiving. From creating an online presence to media management and more. Our last session for the day was a special MI-ACM & NATOA Join Meeting with Protect Attorney Mike Watza giving us updates on the latest telecommunication legislation that affects our member communities.
There was a great PEG representation in the exhibit hall at the Advanced Lighting & Sound (ALS) booths 23-26. ALS showcased the latest in portable production systems and equipment. On display, the new production system for OrionONTV and new production truck for MCTV.
Thank you to everyone who attended MAB! We look forward to seeing you again at the 2017 event. #glbc #glbc2016
