Geir Bjørndal, Conax’s former marketing chief, has joined Verimatrix.
The content security specialist said Bjørndal is charged with significantly increasing the company’s market penetration and visibility with operators looking to take advantage of new generation DVB hybrid networks that include IP and over-the-top video delivery.
“Verimatrix is sitting at the intersection of where traditional and new video services markets converge. Geir brings the unique combination of deep industry knowledge and vision of where the digital TV and revenue security markets are headed to help us take advantage of this position,” said Tom Munro, CEO of Verimatrix. “We feel that he will be a highly effective advocate for our multi-network, multi-screen value proposition and will further strengthen our partner ecosystem in the DVB and hybrid video services market.”
