This will be a first time for me, so that’s fun. It’s at the beach (sort of — the beach is actually some distance from the airport), so that’s fun too. I’m planning on hanging out with Peter Brueninger of AVShowrooms (and TAS, Stereophile and a few others) on Friday and shoot a couple of rooms with him, so that’ll be … funnest?
If you haven’t checked out AVShowrooms, I recommend it. Peter shoots all his content in HD video, which as far as I can tell, is unique in the industry. And exciting. Not really a video guy myself, it’s nonetheless interesting to see what the future of high-end audio reporting will (and should) look like. Ready-made for YouTube!
I’ll make a prediction right here — the next great-big-audio-media-sensation will be a model. Like Morgan Webb. Okay, maybe not.
With my fancy new camera, I’ll have the option to try out some video, too, so stay tuned for that. I might even do the entire show as Darth Vader, or something. With some luck, the shakes and panning won’t make you throw up. We’ll see.
So, back to the show. I don’t have a list of performers (if there are any), or of seminars (if there are any), but the list of exhibitors is pretty lengthy. Should be a great show!
