Presentation 1: Look Out Behind, The Future Is Closing Fast…

8K televisions. Artificial Intelligence. 5G. Internet of Things. The cloud. Hardware is becoming more powerful, smarter, and less expensive at the same time. Software is king, and voice recognition married to AI is the queen. The future is faster wired and wireless connections, autonomous vehicles of every kind, video from anywhere to anywhere at any time, and displays so large they could serve as a wall in a room.

You’ll hear all about it and more in this fast-paced presentation that will also take you through some of the innovations seen at CES and NAB (along with the usual “solar-powered night light” products!).

Presentation 2: MCCC SRT Sound Recording Program and Tour
