Larry Jordan: So what have you got that's new for us this year?

Claudia Barbiero: Some really killer stuff. On the IP distribution aspect of it, we've made some enhancements to our platform that now really allow for true collaboration and curating of content amongst the major news groups and affiliates. Being able to instantly notify different associations, different affiliate stations that, "Here's a great feed. It's available to you right now," you being able to be in control and sharing and distributing that content instantly. That's our LiveU Matrix. It's very new, it's exciting, it's creating a ton of buzz here.

The other is it truly is a global world in that, when you think about cellular bonding, traditionally, our units would be localized for the region that you would be broadcasting in. Now it is truly global. The bandwidth, how big the pipe is doesn't matter. With our HEVC products, which allows you to do much higher quality over much lower bandwidth, dual Sims, which allow for global roaming so basically you can get off a plane anywhere virtuallyÔøΩ virtually, there are still some countries where it wouldn't workÔøΩ and go live without having to have a unit reconfigured or changed or being able to actually also take advantage of satellite when it is available so that the unit actually used the least cost bonding factor. So you can have your satellite, but you could also rely upon the cellular if that's going to be lower cost and more robust. So it's pretty much opened the doors now to say going live from anywhere is a global aspect and it's a very exciting time for us in that respect.
