Dan Miall on BirdDog & NDI

BirdDog took NAB by storm this year, launching a host of new NDI-based products and winning a bunch of awards in the process. Founder and CEO Dan Miall visited Europe in June and we took the opportunity to hold reseller-only events in our Glossop HQ and the Holdan Europe office in Amsterdam.
