Virgin TV and Dolby have been appointed to the DTG council.
The governing body of the DTG has added Virgin TV director of digital entertainment product development Louise Fussell, alongside Dolby director of imaging standards and technology Simon Gauntlett.
Fussell joined Virgin’s customer experience team in 2009, moving into the digital entertainment product management team in 2010. Her work has covered the full product lifecycle from initial localisation and development to product launch, in-life operation and the creation of a roadmap for future developments. She was previously head of TV development at Tiscali and Sky’s head of business analysis.
In his current role, Gauntlett is the European representative for Dolby Laboratories’ office of the CTO, helping to develop and implement imaging technologies for Dolby. Formerly CTO at the DTG for a decade, he also spent seven years in the BBC’s research and development department.
Richard Lindsay-Davies, DTG CEO, said: “With a wealth of experience, both Simon and Louise are expertly placed to take on their role on the DTG Council. Their extensive knowledge, gained in organisations as diverse as the BBC, Virgin Media, Sky and Dolby, will make an invaluable contribution to collaborative industry debate at the DTG.”
