New at NAB 2015: SnapStream Cloud + Social TV

April 07 2015 by Rachel Abbott

We are on Cloud 9, literally! It's our 9th year in a row exhibiting at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas. And we are thrilled to be introducing SnapStream Cloud, along with SnapStream's new social TV features, to over 100,000 of the most tech-savvy media and entertainment professionals.

If you're one of 'em, come on by and visit! We're in a prime-time spot (pun intended) in South Upper Hall SU5402. We are the 9th booth (noticing a theme here?) in the first main aisle.

Here's a lovely map for you.

 #WalkingGIF Contest: Win the Apple Watch

Our Walking GIF will be roaming the Las Vegas Convention Center and he needs your help commemorating his inaugural visit to NAB. The contest starts bright and early Monday at 10 AM and ends Wednesday at 3 PM (Pacific Time). Here's how it works!

1. Find the Walking GIF

Keep your eyes open and cameras ready during the convention because the GIF won’t be in one place for too long…

2. Take a picture, GIF or video

Take a selfie or quick video for Twitter. GIF if you know how!

3. Tweet it with #WalkingGIF #NABShow

You must use both hashtags to enter the contest.

4. Most engaged Tweet wins the Apple Watch

The person with the most combined Retweets and Favorites will be awarded the Apple Watch Sport, so it pays to be creative!
