Stereo3D and our Enterprise sQ system with its unparalleled scalability, performance and ease of use are key drivers of that success. Our new QTube technology will have massive positive impact on our customers' organisations when it is introduced next quarter. We need to get our message out to News and Sports broadcasters and Post organisations worldwide strongly if we are to deliver on the potential of QTube. We want every broadcaster and Post house in the world to know about us. Which is where Marussia Virgin Racing comes in."
