Sprockit has once again reserved a spot in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 2018 NAB Show to highlight a group of startups for its Innovation Pipeline and has announced the first batch of companies that will be taking up the space.

The selected startups will demonstrate their technologies alongside select alumni in the Innovation Pipeline at the new Destination NXT Theater. In addition, the companies will participate in Sprockit Sync, a series of private forums throughout the year where industry executives and entrepreneurs meet to discuss new technologies that could advance the industry. Sprockit corporate members, like Fox Networks Group, Google, Hearst Television, Samsung NEXT, Tegna, Univision and Verizon Digital Media Services, will be on hand as well to connect with participants.
