Newsletter Issue 13 - March 2020

This is certainly not a very good time for any of us. We are all feeling the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, with many conferences and exhibitions canceled or postponed (like NAB Show). This global issue puts all of us to the test. Still, technology has provided us some light as we benefit from technological advances to keep us up to date and continue to connect with anyone anywhere.

While some of our locations are on lockdown and there are many travel bans issued here and there, we continue to be here. We are connected and online to assist wherever we can with your projects, requirements, or technical support. So, do continue to get in touch with our team. We are available—phones and emails.

With that somber introduction out of the way, we bring you our Q1 2020 newsletter. Again, we pool some select Q1 articles on 2020 predictions, AI, Digital Transformation, OTT, and Immersive Technologies. We hope this newsletter provides some much-needed diversion.

Happy reading. Stay safe and alert.
