Call for Presentations: 2021 VSF May Meeting Series Webinar

The Video Services Forum (VSF) is seeking presentations for our traditional May Meeting Series on May 17, 10:00AM – 2:00PM Eastern Daylight Time. This year, we are holding this meeting using a Zoom webinar. The VSF will make this as much like the in-person events as possible with live introductions, live Q&A and some great presentations.
