"To me disruption is to use unexpected new tools to fix customer pain points that have existed for a long time. Six years ago I went to a football game, and all I noticed were heavy satellite trucks outside. I started wondering why anyone would need this type of transmission when cellular data was coming of age. This is how LiveU started."
