Elisabetta Cartoni, President & CEO, said “Finally the NAB Show is back this month and hopefully the pandemic will soon be seen as a remote nightmare. Trade shows are fundamental to meet directly with dealers, distributors, and end-users. For us at Cartoni, it’s a perfect place to spend time with camera operators and directors of photography, listen to their needs, suggestions, experience, and feedbacks. This is how we can improve our products, by talking to your clients you can fine tune ideas for new products or improvements on the existing product line and last, but not least, you chat with your industry friends from all over the world. This year, with Manios Digital, our US distributor, we are introducing a new pedestal and new PTZ accessories, as this end of the market is rapidly expanding and asking for new accessories and support solutions. Finally, I hope the NAB this year, after having been cancelled for two years, will be a very successful show as we all deserve.”
