As we mentioned in our last post, we spent part of last week in Las Vegas for the NAB 2019 conference, where we featured the debut of our 360 video player. It looked amazing (as expected) and we are very proud of our team for pulling that off. However, that certainly wasn't the only exciting thing there. Limelight took home the "Best in Show" award for their white-label of Red5 Pro software. Continuing to demonstrate how our technology is leading the industry forward.

Just a few more New England snowstorms and we should be able to feel our toes again. Despite the date, we are very serious about our new release 5.5.0 for Server, HTML5, and the Mobile SDK!
