While much has been made over the lack of uniform standard metrics for everything from online video views to the definition of various audience segments, I’m going to focus on the lack of uniform definition of something I bump up against almost daily: What, exactly, is television?
The biggest change in television broadcasting since the digital TV transition will get a prominent spot at the NAB Show in early April—but expect much of the news around ATSC 3.0 to involve things besides transmitting TV programming over the air.
On Wall Street, they refer to the collective of high-performing Silicon Valley assets as “FANG.” Of course, in Las Vegas this week at the annual NAB Show, the forces of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google consume a fairly large bite, as well.
The “B” in “NAB Show” stands for “broadcasters,” but it might as well refer to “bits.” That seems especially true in this convention’s Innovation Pipeline, a trio of exhibit areas in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s North Hall that will highlight some of the least-analog frontiers of video these days.
