OTT TV technology provider Xstream has named former Ericsson Broadcast and Media Services president Thorsten Sauer to its board.
At Ericsson Broadcast and Media Services, now known as Red Bee, Sauer supervised the acquisitions of Technicolor’s Broadcast Service division in 2012, Red Bee Media in 2014 and FYI Television in 2016.
Sauer also previously served as chief commercial officer of Ericsson Business Unit CDMA Mobile Systems, based in Sweden and Dallas/US and the company’s global account manager for Deutsche Telekom.
“With more and content owners deciding to go direct to consumers and consumers increasingly consume content through digital channels, I am very happy to join the talented team of Xstream to support the growth of the business. Xstream has revamped its end to end OTT portfolio and migrated all key workflows in a cloud based SaaS model,” said Sauer.
