Are you attending the NAB Show in Las Vegas? Meet us at booth SL7606 and make sure to stop by our session focusing on one of the biggest trends in media.

The NAB Show is one of the largest events in media, entertainment and technology — and we’re in Las Vegas!

Stop by our booth (SL7606) in the South Exhibition Hall, Lower Level, to get an exclusive first look at how you can streamline your newsroom’s multiformat coverage planning with AP Playbook.

AP’s Abigail Muraskin, head of strategy and business development, will also be participating in a panel discussion on Tuesday, April 10, from 11:00-11:30 a.m. PDT in NXT - North about “Big Data & Big Brother: News, Privacy and Piracy.”

“The video market is changing at warp speed and the need to produce more with less is ubiquitous,” Muraskin said. “Smart new tools fueled by artificial intelligence, machine learning and voice, facial, object and sentiment recognition are going to help. No one doubts big workflow changes are coming and data will play an increasingly important role in understanding audiences and in managing content.

“AP knows our ‘special role’ as a global content supplier means we need to be early adopters, and that starts with early experimentation. Right now, we are trying to harness a host of new technologies around live video, automation of metadata and are testing a range of so-called easy-edit tools, transcription tools and other machine-learning technologies.

“Enriching what we shoot and, crucially, how we archive content to shot-level metadata is all work for today that will power tomorrow.”
