Comrex’s ACCESS NX Rack: The Highlight Of The Comrex 2020 NAB Show Exhibit


One of the unique aspects about entertainment as a whole, is the connection between the creator and the audience. The 2020 NAB Show is about expanding that very connection. This coming April, the 2020 NAB Show will be taking place at the Las Vegas Convention center, where over 90,000 professionals from the broadcast industry will gather as part of a global event to collaborate and innovate the unique creative potential behind their brands.

The broadcast industry has many areas of focus such as content creation, media, and technology, which all work to establish the necessary connection between a creator and their audience. Now, anything a creator makes has to be unique. That’s part one. Part two involves the presentation needed to grab an audience in which a connection can be formed. For that to happen, a creator needs the right tools, and that’s where Comrex is more than happy to help.
