Virtual NAB Show 2020. The latest news and announcements

  • As NAB 2020 has been cancelled we will still bring you news of product releases as they are announced

The latest technology news from our partners including EditShare, Avid, Ross Video & StorageDNA and many more, the latest 4K, 8K and UHD and cloud technology announcements.

As we learned and watched the world reporting on Coronavirus and the spread of this horrific illness, we were seeing many businesses react. Avid (and many others) pulled out of NAB, before NAB themselves issued a statement –

“In the interest of addressing the health and safety concerns of our stakeholders and in consultation with partners throughout the media and entertainment industry, we have decided not to move forward with NAB Show in April” (Gordon H. Smith).

We will post here links and news from or partners . As NAB has been cancelled many  of our partners are planning ‘online’ product releases and updates. Please check back here for the latest news.


Avid Technology 

Since the COVID outbreak Avid have been working behind the scenes on a plan to enable conversations and product demo’s to still take place in April albeit “virtual” with all our customers who were intending on attending NAB this year.

Contact us at if you are currently struggling and facing challenges around collaboration and remote workflow for colleagues. As well as standard Product demo’s and exec meetings we can also arrange virtual NAB Product roadmap meetings.

Avid is providing these resources to help media production teams affected by the coronavirus transition to remote workflows.

Avid will announce a range of new products and technology later in the summer, allowing them to concentrate resources on the current remote and collaboration tools.



EditShare are setting up a series of interactive webinars, blogs, and demonstrations to facilitate discussions with their experts that will include tips and tools that you can utilize to help maintain productivity during these challenging times. Webinars focusing on remote production, will happen during March and April and will share how they are working with AWS and other industry partners to bring you three remote collaboration solutions that can be implemented with your teams. We invite you to join us to share your remote production experiences, ask questions, and be part of the conversation. Register at

When AJA made the decision to withdraw from NAB 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we planned to announce our new product introductions online on April 21st at 9AM PST. A lot has changed in the past few weeks since that decision.

For the time being, we no longer plan to reveal all of our new products on April 21st, but instead will be rolling out announcements to more closely align with product certifications and availability to customers. We apologize for the inconvenience, but look forward to sharing our breakthrough new product news with you soon.
