Tom Munro, CEO, Verimatrix
On day two of NAB Show, we will be participating in the 4K 4Charity Fun Run alongside pay-TV industry leaders. Not only will this be a great way to start the day – and shake off any cobwebs from the previous days in Vegas – but it’s also an excellent way to promote the importance of 4K technology in our industry while also helping those in need.
We are delighted to sponsor this event with NAB Show, New Bay Media, and co-founders Elemental and Ericsson– the latter being two valued members of the Verimatrix partner ecosystem who not only share our commitment to innovation, but also our dedication to giving back to the community.
I may be “stretching” a bit here but I think the run reflects the state of the pay-TV industry – no one company can provide a magic bullet to address all of the challenges facing operators and content owners today, especially those related to delivering 4K and UHD content. But together, we can provide subscribers with the services and content they crave.
In running together on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, we can extend our positive impact to the community as well. Proceeds generated by the event will benefit Heifer International, an organization that brings sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. An additional portion will support Shade Tree, a local charity in Las Vegas that provides safe shelter to homeless and abused women and children in crisis. Certainly two worthy causes that I hope you will join me in supporting.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind you to “race” to our Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum after the run. We’ll have a breakfast fit for hungry runners, and an excellent line-up that features several industry experts, including Elemental’s own CMO Keith Wymbs.
We look forward to seeing you all at the run on Tuesday, and hope you can continue your morning of celebrating innovation at our Forum.
