Moritz Schall, Business Development Manager, said: “NAB 2018 will be a big leap forward for us in terms of cloud and innovation. The smart solutions from our five booth partners are a great example how innovation can enrich the journalist’s workflows in OpenMedia. The Smart Media Engine from Condat AG demonstrates how semantic can help structuring the cross media research. And having a frame accurate HTML5 player integrated like Accurate Player is key when it comes to the cloud and web UI’s. We are also proud to highlight a fully integrated and cloud-based workflow, connecting the journalist’s production on a smartphone with a newsroom in the cloud, together with our partners HIAG Data AG, SwissTXT and ZDFdigital.”
