Adventures Abound in Amsterdam

The International Broadcast Convention is the largest European trade show in the Media and Entertainment Industry. It always showcases some truly exciting new tech. We are always honored and humbled when people stop by to talk to our workflow experts. This year we found time to do a little sightseeing as well! Here’s a small taste of our adventures around Amsterdam and the show.

Bottom left: the Rijks library is the largest public art research library in the Netherlands.Before you even walk into the Rijksmuseum the beauty of the building strikes you. The architecture in Amsterdam is something to behold all on it’s own. Inside there are truly wonderful art pieces that are so unique to the culture and area, as an American it’s hard to not feel envious of Europe’s long and old history.
