NAB Show and Frequency, based in Los Angeles, announced that Frequency’s channel creation and distribution platform, Frequency Studio, will power the 24-hour linear channel offering as part of NAB Show’s inaugural digital event, NAB Show Express, taking place May 13-14. The online event will feature live and on-demand educational sessions, as well as an exclusive Solutions Marketplace, available at nabshowexpress.com.
As part of the two-day online event, users will be able to access and watch multiple live, linear channels, all delivered through Frequency’s distributed media player. The player also incorporates an integrated programming guide and a customizable user interface that has been optimized for NAB Show Express.
The channels will be powered by Studio’s new GRAPHICS suite, enabled by Singular Live. GRAPHICS is now available to all Studio channel creators, and is an industry first, delivering real time full-screen, data-driven motion graphics, rendered completely in the cloud, at up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second.

The channels will consist of video on-demand programming featuring exhibitor product information, announcements, demos and more.
