      Rachelle's Answer

      "This year has seen many great advancements in streaming technology. Recently, I was reading an article on what to watch for streaming this year. The one that stood out most to me was the topic of virtual reality and 360-degree video streaming. The article discussed how experts believe immersive content is becoming more accessible and more of a focus now."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "A lot of people complained in the past about the latency on live broadcasts and other interactive broadcasts. When streaming, the viewer is often behind a few seconds, which may seem trivial, but it's a real issue for live shows that are audience interactive. I will use American Idol, for example, where the viewers text in their votes. I know there has been a call for internet-delivered content to offer higher speeds and, this year alone, we are already seeing latency improvements up to 5 seconds which is incredible."

      Great. This is an area that you can speak to knowledgeably. You can always expand by discussing why 5g is bigger than other breakthroughs to show a breadth of knowledge.
