Speaking on the occasion, Frost said:
“I am delighted to be at the nucleus of cloud transformation, working for the world leader in cloud video, AWS Elemental. I believe that only those who embrace cloud approaches, IP interconnect and delivery and blend this with the deepest AI insight and focus on the end viewer will thrive.”
