WHAT DO YOU DO AT EDGEWARE?
I work in the so called UnitX, where we aim at inventing new business ideas as well as contributing as experts to product development. My expertise is in video coding and protocols for packaging and sending video and other media. My work includes testing new ideas, building prototypes and demonstrators, as well as investigating and determining which algorithms and protocols for video repackaging and processing we should implement. As a function owner, I keep an eye on the technological details of the media repackaging products we are developing. I am also part of a few standardisation fora such as MPEG and DASH-IF, and I am active in developing Open Source for DASH through DASH-IF. My first MPEG standardisation meeting was in Japan, in 1995. As an expert, I often help out in troubleshooting difficult technical problems.
WHY DID YOU START AT EDGEWARE?
I worked in research and development of video technology at Ericsson Research for 16 years, and at MobiTV for five. When MobiTV’s Swedish office shut down a few years ago, I was looking for a challenging job – preferably in a field of technology where my skills and my network in video technology would be valuable – and I found a great match at Edgeware.
WHAT DO YOU APPRECIATE MOST ABOUT THE WORK?
I can contribute on many different levels, from in-depth technical details to major strategic elements of the products we’re going to develop. It’s also tremendously pleasant to work together
with skilled people from nearly all parts of the company. Those benefits are hard to get at a larger company.
