Fiction that became reality – The world’s largest technology event in the fields of media, content and entertainment, the NAB Show, which runs from April 24th to 27th, hosts over 100,000 people, including exhibitors, attendees and personalities.
This year, the futuristic hallmark of the US trade show was made very clear with the launch of the concept, The M.E.T Effect: “a cultural phenomenon fueled by hybrid solutions and boundless connectivity that’s changing the very nature of how we live, work and play”, as described by the event site.
M.E.T is an acronym for Media, Entertainment and Technology. It summarizes the symbiosis between the intensively complex devices and the infinite business possibilities, from the Internet of Things (IoT), to artificial intelligence, a world that hitherto looked like something out of a sci-fi movie is becoming increasingly real.
