Martin Gibson recently joined the ActiveVideo team, and will lead all device ecosystem efforts worldwide. Martin will build out ActiveVideo’s client engineering and integration initiatives, and will define a partner integration and certification program, helping scale the number of devices that can access AppCloud.

Martin joins us from Disney Streaming Services where he worked on a range of initiatives for the Disney+ streaming client including operator deployments, defining the next-gen client and defining the Disney streaming partner integration portal. Prior to this, he was at Open TV and Nagra for over a decade, most recently as Vice President of Architecture where he was responsible for the end-to-end system architecture of the company’s OpenTV product suite.

Welcoming Martin to the team, Ronald Brockmann said: “We are very excited to have Martin on-board given his extremely relevant experience! From previous roles across R&D, engineering management, embedded development and cloud architecture, Martin can effectively navigate complex technologies and requirements - which will prove vital as we scale up.”

Partner integration is a critical element of the client lifecycle. Martin and the team will be developing a program that can scale to handle the rapidly increasing number of partners from OEMs, to middleware providers and operators, translating into more streamlined cycles and uniform, repeatable deployments.

Martin Gibson, VP Device Ecosystems, ActiveVideoMartin adds: “I am excited to join the ActiveVideo team. I have been following the development of AppCloud with significant interest - it stands out as a prime example of the potential of virtualization tech in this space! The AppCloud client is a critical end-point in our system, and it has to handle significant constraints (limited platform resources, limited updatability, etc.). This means it needs to be treated as a product in its own right, with a clear set of priorities and focus, which is a great responsibility to have.”
