UK-based interactive TV specialist S&T has hired former technical director of Teletext and founder of OnScreen Publishing, Gordon Maynard.
Maynard has been brought in to lead a new applications initiative at S&T and will focus on web apps, including HTML5 and HbbTV.
In 2008 Maynard founded OnScreen Publishing to develop technology to create and publish apps for connected TVs and mobile devices. This product, OnScreen Publisher, will now be integrated with S&T’s other products.
“We are enriching our offering with the addition of OnScreen Publisher and at the same time, we welcome to the team one of the most experienced advocates of interactivity in Gordon Maynard. This is a great development for S&T and we look forward to an exciting period to come,” said David Cutts, managing director of S&T.
