Shawn Lam, BCPVA President, and Michael Rendulic, BCPVA Executive member, will be reporting back from the NAB Show in Las Vegas to tell us about the awesome new gear that’s out and to announce their selections for the 6th annual BCPVA VIA awards.

In order for products to be eligible, a pre-production or production model must be demonstrated at NAB.
