Technology provider KIT Digital has officially changed its name to Piksel.
Headquartered in New York, the company is headed by interim CEO Peter Heiland, while Kevin Joyce has been named as chief commercial officer.
“Piksel solves business problems with innovative thinking. Though we have platforms and applications for video, we don’t bill ourselves as a pure-play product company. And while our professional services and managed services expertise is built on decades of experience, nor do we see ourselves as a pure services business. We are, at heart, a solutions provider,” said Heiland. “Put simply, our goal is to help our clients optimize the value of their video assets. Whether we do that with our software or someone else’s, we’re focused on giving our client’s the edge they need to deliver high performance multi-screen content experiences faster.”
Piksel’s board of management includes chairman Bill Russell, and non-executive directors Duminda DeSilva, Gregory Peterson and Heiland. According to the company the board will focus on steering a course of sustainable, organic growth for Piksel, as well as strengthening its product engineering capabilities in the UK, Italy, Spain, and the US to meet the rising demand in these, and adjacent, markets.
Piksel will exhibit at IBC in two weeks.
