Washington, D.C. -- The 2023 NAB Show will host the 4th Global Next Gen Broadcasting Conference, co-produced by NAB and the Korea Radio Promotion Association (RAPA) on Sunday, April 16 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm PT in Room W223-225 in the Las Vegas Convention West Hall.
NAB participated in the first iteration of the conference (originally called the Global UHD Conference) in 2017 in Seoul, as well as hosting it at the NAB Show in 2018 and again participating when it returned to Seoul in 2019.
Many of the promises of Next Gen Broadcasting discussed in the first three conferences have now come to fruition and this 4th conference will celebrate those successes and set a path for future accomplishments. In addition to high level speakers from the Korean and U.S. broadcast industries, attendees will hear from FCC Commissioner Nathan Simington and Jin-Bae Hong, Deputy Minister at the Office of Network Policy in the Korean Ministry of Science and ICT. Representatives from Brazil, India and Jamaica will also present updates on their evolutionary path to next gen broadcasting.
NAB Executive Vice President of Technology and Chief Technology Officer Sam Matheny said, “We are honored and excited to be working with our colleagues at RAPA to produce this timely and important conference at NAB Show. Next Gen broadcasting is revolutionizing terrestrial television broadcast services around the world, and we’re pleased to collect and share those experiences for the benefit of our international audience and broadcasters everywhere.”
RAPA Director, Industrial Development Division, Kang Ok “Jay” Jeon said, “It’s great that we get back together to create new opportunities together, build them together, and succeed together as we are moving into the future together. We are also going to celebrate 100 years of NAB together here in Las Vegas. The most exciting part of this gathering is that we will bring huge updates on ATSC 3.0 in Korea, the U.S, India, Brazil, the Caribbean, and other key stakeholders we have not yet identified in the global community.
Admission to this conference is free to all NAB Show badge holders.
