Washington, D.C. — Last night, next-gen cable company Layer3 TV hosted lawmakers, regulators, key staff members and other influencers within the tech and television industries at the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) Innovation House for a bipartisan discussion about innovation, 4K and the future of TV.
Layer3 TV CEO Jeff Binder, along with other key members of the Layer3 team, invited guests to demo and interact with Layer3 TV’s platform to experience the brand’s unique features such as NASA’s live 4K UHD channel, next-generation content and app integrations, sleek user interface and best-in-class picture quality.
“Washington, D.C. was our first major market to launch Layer3 TV, in part because it’s the place where tech and policy come together,” says Binder, in town from Layer3 TV’s Denver headquarters.“We were looking forward to giving this community the chance to put their hands on the innovative platform we’re offering consumers.”
Notable attendees included:
- Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA)
