Interactive program spotlights innovation and collaboration to tackle industry challenges
WASHINGTON, D.C.May 24, 2023 — Winning projects have been announced for NABiQ, a revolutionary networking series focused on advanced technology solutions held at the 2023 NAB Show, April 15 – 19, 2023 in Las Vegas. Winners were selected for challenges related to NAB Show’s content pillars of Create, Connect and Capitalize as well as Intelligent Content.
The program’s coordinator Maria Duloquin, an innovation consultant, certified Design Sprint Master and startup coach, and her team facilitated 20 sessions of the competition-style event during NAB Show. The challenges, sponsored by Storj and supported by NAB Amplify, brought together participants with diverse business and technology expertise to collaborate on solutions to common challenges facing the broadcast, media and technology industries.
NABiQ tackled four challenges: developing creator-led production, leveraging AI or alternative reality in advertising, designing sustainable streaming and personalizing viewing. Teams were given one hour to discuss and develop projects and then pitched their innovative ideas LIVE at NAB Show.
“NABiQ is an exhilarating opportunity for both pitch participants and an engaged audience to ignite innovation, spark meaningful collaborations and shape the course of our industry’s evolution,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president and managing director of Global Connections and Events. “I extend my gratitude to all NABiQ participants for their invaluable contributions and congratulate the winners on their exceptional achievements.”
NAB Show attendees not only had the opportunity to watch, but also participate. The audience was an integral part of the process as they chose the winner of each challenge by enthusiastic applause.
Winning projects and finalists are:
- CREATE: AI GENERATIVE STORYBUILDING
- CONNECT: SEAWEED
