If you are attending the 2012 NAB show you might want to consider setting aside some time to attend a new half-day conference called “Media Technology: Strategy and Valuation,” which is being produced by Devoncroft, Silverwood Partners and the NAB Show

This event is being held in room N237 of the Las Vegas Convention Center on Sunday April 15th from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and it’s free for all registered attendees of the 2012 NAB show.

This conference will address industry-specific factors driving the valuations of companies including changing market dynamics, new technology, and evolving customer requirements. It is intended for industry technology executives, private equity investors, and venture capital investors in the media technology sector.

You’ll hear from experts from the financial community, broadcast industry technology buyers, leading service providers, and media technology market research analysts.

Here’s the current lineup of presenters:

David Peto CEO of A-Frame (who just raised $7m for a cloud-based broadcast production system) will discuss how SaaS business models will impact the broadcast production environment.

Joe Zaller from Devoncroft Partners will present a summary of the 2012 Big Broadcast Survey including a review of the most important industry trends, where money is being spent in the broadcast industry, the evolution of HD infrastructure and file-based workflows, and how a vendors brand can impact its valuation.
