The BEITC Engage! sessions feature five concurrent speakers taking on a diverse selection of broadcast technology topics from SMPTE 2110 to blockchain.

Today, NAB CTO Sam Matheny and PILOT Executive Director John Clark, spoke to the TAP students about PILOT, the current state of technology and future opportunities.
