Jon Piesing has been appointed the new chairman of the DVB’s Technical Module.
Piesing will take over from Kevin Murray who has filled the role since 2015.
He is currently director, Standardisation for TP Vision, which manufactures Philips TVs for Europe and a number of other territories.
Commenting on Piesing’s appointment, Peter MacAvock, DVB chairman said: “DVB faces exciting challenges as it embraces hybrid services, and broadband delivery, in addition to ensuring that its core broadcast technologies remain state-of-the-art. Jon is not new to DVB and brings a unique view in these areas that will further energise the Project. Kevin Murray’s contribution to DVB has been immense and we look forward to continuing to benefit from his wisdom for some time to come.”
Piesing added, “I’m honoured to be taking over the role of DVB TM chair at this important time for DVB and our members with the continued growth of OTT content delivery and the consumption of traditional DVB content on a broader range of device types”.
