Commercial video services are a funny thing- they seem to go through ebbs and flows of industry excitement. One day it seems boring and the next thing you see is live video from a drone, Google releasing Duo, a patient traveling on a dogsled to receive care from a doctor a 1,000 miles away… and then everyone gets excited again. I worked… Read More
