Digidev Announces Appointment of Key Technology Leadership
May 08, 2012
Company Welcomes Richard Verdoni as CTO
LOS ANGELES, CA--Digital Development Group Corp. (
Mr. Verdoni brings an extensive background in technology development and innovation. He was educated at the University of Michigan with a focus on Art and Computer Science which led to early involvement in the Silicon Valley boom of the 90s notably as an associate producer for a 3rd party video game developer for the Atari Corporation. His various accomplishments at this time included new methods for rotoscoping, sprite development and color computation. He went on to consult for DIVATV, an SRI spin-off, which was eventually sold to Comcast and was one of the first adopters of IPTV where Verdoni was instrumental in providing new methods for VOD content delivery. Previously, Verdoni was assigned a 4-year tour overseas as a U.S. Naval photographer. His secret security clearance enabled in-depth studies of advanced imaging protocols.
Richard went on to partner in a number of successful multimedia startups and internet based businesses servicing and developing applications and solutions for hundreds of clients over the past 15 years. He credits his appreciation of entertainment to his ancestral ties to the famed Circo Atayde Hnos. family of Latin America. He chose Mexico City in 2006 as a vibrant location offering huge opportunity for his vision of a consultancy aimed at the advancement of emerging technologies focused on IPTV and multi-media application development. During this time he was additionally engaged as IT consultant to the U.S. State Department's embassy in Mexico City. He recently returned to California where he plans to fully dedicate his time in furthering the growth of Digidev.
Joe Q. Bretz, President of Digidev, states, "Richard and I have been working together for over 13 years. Digidev provides us both with the infrastructure to complete what we set out to do long ago. To create a standard delivery and management system to bring quality interactive content direct to the consumer. He is the perfect man for the job."
Martin W. Greenwald CEO of Digidev adds, "I am so pleased that Richard has chosen to join our ranks. He brings an extraordinary arsenal of skills and a highly focused approach. We are assembling a really solid and top-notch team that is 100% committed to achieving success in the rapidly growing OTT content delivery sector."
