I'm excited to work again with Brad, who has a proven track record of success, vision, and a contagious amount of positive energy."

From a strategic perspective, AllDigital is currently focused on developing a breakthrough content delivery platform that will dramatically decrease latency for data delivery of multiple forms including video, audio, and other forms of "twitch" sensitive media such as push notifications, beacons, and synchronized events among connected devices. If latency is reduced to levels that are faster than cached data transport models, AllDigital anticipates new addressable markets for IP digital media delivery including advertising, interactive television, financial events, medical, government, robotics, and other time critical applications.
"Based on customer requirements for ultra low latency ("AllDigital ULL")™ digital broadcasting solutions, we have put together a team of content delivery experts to solve this exciting technical challenge," said Paul Summers. "We expect that AllDigital ULL will provide our customers with a better than broadcast experience."
AllDigital will be at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 7th – 9th. For more information, please visit www.alldigital.com.
