Great news, thanks!

I would suggest a variant of what Fabiano wrote:

1) Share your video, e.g. attached to the issue, so that we can indeed digest it

2) Outline architecture implications / questions

3) Have a slot in a later AC meeting to discuss the questions you asked.

Also, it might be a good idea to engage in interactive discussion with people closer to your time zone (notably from China). That does not need to be in the AC meeting, but it could be quite fruitful.
