NAB Host to HDTV Camera Heist

At last month’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) confab, three high-definition cameras, valued at more than $50,000 each, were stolen from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) in a matter of hours on the Thursday before the show, as exhibitors and convention workers set up booths to display vendors’ wares.

Ikegami had a $55,000 HDN-X10 disk-based HD camera and a $34,000 Canon hi-def lens lifted from its booth. Shotoku had a $50,000 Sony high-def camera swiped. Hardest hit was New York City-based dealer Abel CineTech, which lost a Panasonic hi-def Varicam worth $72,000, along with a $27,000 Panasonic standard-def camera and a $4,000 Panasonic MiniDV camera.
