Drones, OVPs, Broadcast - Oh My! Zype Report from NAB Show 2016

By Chris Smith on April 22, 2016

Zype is back from NAB Show after an awesome (and long!) week in Vegas.

The National Association of Broadcasters, as you would correctly assume, is the trade association for broadcasters, and their annual NAB Show is an important gathering of business and technical professionals from the broadcast industry. NAB Show connects content owners, broadcast networks, production professionals, and industry leaders and highlights new tech, gear, software, and the latest tips and tricks that impact the business of broadcast.

From drones (so many drones) and high-end digital cameras and HD mobile production trucks, to post production software and audio engineering equipment and online video platforms (Zype!), to an excellent program featuring industry-renowned leaders, NAB Show is required attendance for anyone involved in broadcast.

Zype partnered with our friends at AWS to bring our end-to-end video business platform to the 2016 NAB Show floor.


Did you know that the Zype online video platform is built on powerful AWS cloud infrastructure? Zype has push-button app building technologies for set-top devices including Amazon Fire TV and Smart TVs with an easy to use platform to manage and curate content. Plus, AWS users can bring their own CloudFront CDN accounts to us and integrate directly with Amazon Payments for subscription and purchases.

We were pretty excited about the custom NAB Amazon Fire TV app that our engineers built to show off our OTT solution. Check out this video walkthrough of our custom NAB AFTV app that features a customer showcase and a selection of Zype platform demo videos:


Zype CRO AJ Vernet demoed our easy to use end-to-end solution for OTT publishing and showed off how you only need to use one finger to import your entire video library.

It was great to meet with many of our customers and soon-to-be customers on the floor at NAB. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
