Dan Montgomery, President/CEO, Imagine Products, Inc.

Dan Montgomery, President/CEO of Imagine Products, Inc., was an early proponent of tapeless digital workflows with their software ShotPut Pro. Recently, he told us about a new LTO backup solution they’ve invented for Mac users called PreRollPost Archiver, that will debut at NAB 2012. Since this may be one of the first truly affordable LTO solutions, we want to find out more before the NAB crush starts.

Ross Bentley, CEO, Rights Tracker
Karyn Bliss, Dir., Product Development, StorerTV

Ross Bentley, CEO of UK-based Rights Tracker, has decades of experience managing rights software implementations for media companies. His company recently partnered with StorerTV to expand its reach to the Americas.

Philip Hodgetts, President of Intelligent Assistance, covered the event and gives us his report on this week’s show.

Jessica Sitomer, President, The Greenlight Coach

The NAB Show, one of the world’s largest and most important industry expos, starts in less than two weeks! How do we prepare? What should we do? How do we come home after the Expo feeling like we were successful? Jessica Sitomer, President of The Greenlight Coach says that you can never prepare too much. Darn, that’s depressing – find out what Jessica REALLY means on this week’s show!

Jonathan Handel, Of Counsel, Troy/Gould

Our intrepid correspondent – Jonathan Handel – ventures where only the brave dare to go and explains what it all means. When he’s not reporting for The Buzz, Jonathan is Of Counsel at Troy/Gould and the entertainment labor reporter for The Hollywood Reporter.
