We are days away from one of the biggest trade events of the year, and I cannot wait to hit the streets of Vegas once again for NAB Show 2022. It’s a wonderful feeling to reconnect face-to-face with our customers, partners, and industry friends and showcase the many new services and capabilities we have introduced since the last show three years ago. We welcome you to visit our newly launched microsite, which provides a full rundown of our NAB Show activity and the latest news and information. Take a look here.

Exploring ‘Live without Limits’

First change to report – our NAB Show booth has moved to the brand-new West Hall (#W2800)! There, we will be taking visitors through the full breadth and capabilities of our media services and solutions portfolio and showcasing our array of services that enable broadcasters, TV operators, and content owners to stream live without limits.

To illustrate our commitment to enabling the future of live streaming, we will be putting our capabilities to the test throughout the show, using live footage from an on-booth remote control racetrack for all our live demonstrations. Come and experience how we are resolving the challenge of achieving ultra-low latency streaming at scale across multiple applications!

I’m looking forward to finally presenting the NAB Show debut of MediaKind Engage, our broadcast-grade solution designed to tackle the challenges faced by sports broadcasters and content owners in the direct-to-consumer (D2C) streaming market. We will also be delivering an exciting range of interactive showcases and competitions, where we aim to show you how we provide the technology, solutions, and services to deliver quality, immersive media experiences to millions of viewers every day. Some of the demos we have on offer are:

  • A live end-to-end streaming experience, where MediaKind will display its capabilities through a series of live streaming demonstrations via an on-booth remote-control race car track
  • Addressing market challenges, where we will dive into specific industry hot topics and hurdles and solutions to streamline the end-to-end media delivery and processing pipeline
  • Our new ‘Track the Ads’ challenge, an on-booth experience utilizing MediaKind’s Emmy® Award-winning PRISMA solution which places targeted personalized adverts within a viewer’s streaming feed, where you could win a prize every day for spotting a specially placed golden ad
