SatMagazine | March 2016 | SatBroadcasting™: The Art Of Using Video To Manage | By Roger Franklin, CEO, Crystal
Have you ever wished you could press playback on an event that occurred in the past? Perhaps to prove a point you’re trying to make, or, as in the case of 20/20 hindsight, a lesson you’re attempting to teach?
