Video streaming technology company 24i, part of the Aferian group with sister company Amino Communications, has promoted David Brown to chief technology officer.
As the newest member of the executive team, will be focused on developing the right technology and products to advance the video streaming user experience, increase engagement and reduce costs for customers, said 24i.
Before becoming a senior scientist at 24i, Brown spent nearly 15 years as a senior technical evangelist at content security provider Verimatrix, where he designed end-to-end security systems and developed security best practices for customer applications.
He held previous technical positions at Ericsson Television (formerly Tandberg Television), UK service provider Virgin Media and trade credit insurance outfit Atradius, as well as a customer services manager at Amino Communications.
Brown said: “It is exciting to be on the forefront of video streaming innovation with 24i. These are challenging times for the streaming industry, but in my experience it is in the face of adversity where technology can really shine – evolving and innovating to find new ways that set a company apart from its rivals. I am proud of the work our teams do to create configurable white label applications for all devices, and refine the user experience in these apps, which will continue to be a huge focus for us.”
