My son is allergic to peanuts. I, on the other hand, can’t fathom a world without peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Although he'll likely never eat that perfect sandwich himself, I have hope that he’ll understand the perfection of the PB&J combination. He'll have a great example in the MDS streaming appliance from Wowza and NewTek. It simplifies the workflow for enterprises and educational institutions looking to produce high-quality live video and distribute seamlessly to any device.
