Head of R&D, Perform Group
Ed’s career in TV Technology started as a young man, through an opportunity to work at Pinewood Studios as founder of a small start-up, where the lead investor shared Ed’s enthusiastic vision for emerging technologies. Originally working in areas such as video playback for film, his calling rapidly became one of innovation and entrepreneurship. His most ambitious project was raise significant capital to start up a new company to design and build a hybrid-set-top-box and middleware with, the then new, DVBT2 tuners. He was recognised for innovation at IBC Connected World in 2011.
20 years, three businesses, several mortgages, and a lot of sleepless nights since that first business at Pinewood, he finally finds himself in a proper job. Having worked in post-production, studios, transmission, encoding, channel launches and IPTV delivery, Perform Group has been the ideal place for Ed to challenge the existing delivery paradigm and push Perform in to new markets that open new commercial possibilities.
