So much so, it expects to report full year revenue growth of 43% to 47%.

Audinate has also just entered the video market, with its products being received very well.

Booktopia Group Ltd (ASX: BKG)

For example, during the first half, Booktopia reported a 51.1% increase in revenue to $112.6 million and a 502.3% jump in underlying EBITDA to $8 million. This strong form continued in the third quarter, with the company delivering a 53% increase in quarterly revenue.
