The NAB Show floor may not open until tomorrow, but things are well underway here in Las Vegas.
On Saturday, BEITC Engage kicked off with speakers on Emerging Broadcast Delivery System, IP for Broadcast and Media Facilities Design. The new electronic poster format allowed session attendees to interact directly with speakers.
Amazon was also here conducting a Boot Camp for Alexa Skills.
