“I believe that there is a very clear and direct symbiotic relationship between a thriving creative industry and a thriving tech and internet ecosystem.”

- Greg Peters, co-CEO, Netflix

“We go to remote locations. We needed to broadcast this in a different way. So we decided to bring in a... virtual reality element of it. And the way it's done is actually we have 40 people on the ground. We have another 40 people on a studio in London. We have photo graphics. We have 25 people in a studio in Amsterdam, and 10 people in a studio in Barcelona - all at the same time working virtually together to produce the feed that then goes out to the world.

So you see what you see on TV is completely different than what we see when we're watching the cars on site. And it's something that is much more data intensive.”

- Alejandro Agag, Founder & CEO, Formula E
