AJA Video Systems pulls out of NAB 2020 due to Covid-19 alarm
Even after NAB reaffirmed its willingness to hold the NAB Show 2020 by assuring whatever resources necessary to ensure the safety of attendees, just a few hours ago AJA Video Systems has confirmed through an statement that it’s withdrawing from the show.
This is the complete official statement from AJA:
“It is with a heavy heart that AJA is withdrawing from the NAB 2020 show in Las Vegas due to the risks from the Coronavirus. We have made this decision out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our employees and partners worldwide.
While we will miss gathering with our friends and colleagues from around the world, AJA remains fully committed to transitioning all of our planned NAB events (product announcements and demos, channel partner meeting and press conference) to web-based video conferences. We have exciting product news to share, and we look forward to bringing those products to market as planned.
AJA is a community-based company with a majority of our staff, product development and manufacturing located in Grass Valley, California and in light of the risks presented by Covid-19, having a physical presence at NAB posed too great of a risk.
For the latest updates and developments regarding event participation and upcoming web events, please be sure to follow AJA on Twitter @AJAVideo”
NAB Show is set to take place as planned, April 18 – 22 in Las Vegas.
