Larry Jordan: Virtualization is the ability to have something wherever you want without having to have it the same physical space. It sounds like this allows us to have communication across a wide area. So I could have, in the studio terms, I could have people in a studio in Chicago and a control room in New York and are able to talk to each other over the same intercom. Is that a correct statement?

Bob Boster: That's a correct statement. And we've had that capability with previous generations of our product that works in that in that way, let's say a matrix intercom system solution. The difference now is higher density. We were previously at 32 virtual ports, if you like, we're now up to 64 on the same physical platform, which is an improvement obviously, kind of lower latency or at least more deterministic latency performance on the IP performance of that system, higher quality in at least some applications, and then interoperability. So AES67 lets you connect those things to other people's systems very nicely.

LJ: That is some cool new technology. I'm very impressed.

BB: It is and we're very excited about it and a lot of people have been using our existing products in IP domains and are very enthusiastic to see us taking yet another step forward in that area.
