Avid at the 2011 NAB Show: Main Stage Speakers

One of the highlights will surly be the main stage presentations  by a full lineup of editors , directors, and producers  sharing  exclusive insights into their broadcast, newsroom, and post production workflows, explaining how Avid’s solutions help them turn their ideas into blockbuster realities.  Avid’s line-up of guest speakers appearing on our main stage this year includes:
