According to Laporte, what he likes about the digital revolution is its democratizing nature. "If broadcasters are willing to think out of the box and throw away their notions of what broadcasting is, they can take advantage of and profit from the digital revolution," he said. "Anyone who has an idea they want to share and a potential audience, can produce and broadcast for themselves. This technology, along with NewTek TriCaster, allows you to get your voice heard. For me that is the most important transformation."

At NAB, NewTek will award over $100,000 in prizes with the TriCaster-A-Day Giveaway. For more information regarding NewTek at the NAB Show, visit: For up-to-the-minute details on NewTek at NAB, follow NewTek on Facebook and Twitter.
