James McKenna: Hello, Larry.

Larry Jordan: So give us a short description of what Facilis does.

James McKenna: Sure. Last 15 years, we've been doing shared storage for post-production content creation broadcast. We do it in such a way we very differentiate it from network attached storage. We have a shared file system that's very unique and customized, very optimized for video and audio.
