Larry Jordan: And welcome back. We’re talking to Michael Gailing. He’s the VP of Marketing for Teradek. And, Michael, it’s good to talk to you. Thanks for joining us today.

So tell me what Teradek is doing these days.

Michael Gailing: So we focus primarily on two different things, wireless video, primarily in the cinema space, and also live streaming for broadcasters and what we call independent content creators, anybody from YouTube stars to family and friends streaming high school sports.

Larry Jordan: Who would be typical customers for Teradek and how would it be used?

Michael Gailing: Well, let’s start on the cinema space. We find that many of our customers use our most popular product, the Teradek Bolt, which is a zero-latency uncompressed wireless video transmitter. And these devices are found on pretty much every A-list movie set you can think of — anything from Disney and Marvel films to independent films that are now being picked up by Netflix, Amazon Prime, and a lot of the new OTT content.

Outside of the cinema space, we’re finding a really big surge in live streaming for our live streaming products in the house of worship market, education, especially football and high school sports. Just crazy amounts of streaming now and lots and lots of new startups that are doing all sorts of really wonderful stat taking for these games and then, of course, using our technology to stream it.

Larry Jordan: So what have you got for us that’s new here at NAB?
