Josh Koller, VCC Producer and Manager of Sales & Training, discussing AirFirst™ at NAB 2022

AirFirst was originally developed for VCC’s “white glove” Caller Cloud service and has been used for more than 20,000 remotes on streaming, cable, and broadcast programs. That same patented system is now available to independent producers, news, sports, entertainment, government, NGO, corporate event productions, and other media organizations.
