National Association of Broadcasters PILOT Innovation Competition Software Launches
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) describes itself as “the voice for the nation’s radio and television broadcasters” and “the premier trade association” for the industry. The organization provides value to its members through advocacy, education, and innovation. It’s the innovation piece that drives its newly launched, Skild-powered PILOT competition platform.
The contest, designed to help “navigate broadcasting’s future,” poses the question, “How might local television and radio broadcasters engage their communities with next generation content on any device, whether big, small, or moving?” This could include TV, radio, tablets, smartphones, computers, wearables, VR devices, gaming systems, etc. Participants must provide creative answers to that question in the form of ideas, strategies, and solutions that will help define the future of broadcasting.
