But of course not everyone can make it, and that’s why we’re delighted to be able to introduce the Live Broadcast this year. It opens up our IFA booth to people worldwide, gives everyone the chance and view our latest products and technologies, and to interact with our product experts to find out more about the future of network AV and 3D products. We’re looking forward to greeting everyone online and on stand as well.”
