locations and the system's portability is a differentiator in our Atlanta

already made a real difference in live video transmission. Our customers have
been able to conduct interviews in the most extreme conditions, in the car,
in the crowd and even while flying overhead in a helicopter. Now with
sub-second delay, we're offering a satellite-like experience to our global
customer base. As industry pioneers, we are committed to continuous
technological breakthroughs and to the highest level of customer service and
support 24/7/365 in any location."
