The NAB 2019 show revolved around four major themes: video technology providers’ willingness to integrate with their cloud frenemies; machine learning’s emergence as a competitive differentiator in a crowded video technology market; the continued and seemingly unchecked consolidation of the online video platform (OVP) space; new signs of life from the reference development kit (RDK) set-top software community.
