We’d love to give you a live demo over any kind of apparatus you might like, we’ll do it right there, even with cellular data, to show you how fast our stream really is. We’ll also have some really great announcements of partnerships with some very established companies in the industry that are upstream from us.”

There’s also progressive upload and easy editing and file sharing features built into the app.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone in Amsterdam. We have a tonne of new features coming out, some of them specially made for the European market, and we’ll also have free coffee on our stand!”
