7thSense, a global leader in advanced media serving, pixel management and show control technologies, has appointed Erik Iversen as Senior Product Manager for pixel processing products.
Erik joins 7thSense from Barco, where he held multiple customer-facing roles since 2005, most recently as the Product Manager for image processing. Erik has always been passionate about live events, developing a love of live shows early on. Prior to Barco, Erik began his professional career in 1991 as a lighting designer, freelanced as a video engineering and projectionist, and founded his own production company providing value-based corporate events. Throughout his career, Erik has been on high-profile corporate events and has toured around the world with several well-known musicians.
Speaking about his new role, Erik said, “7thSense has a company-wide focus on customer success. When customers bring their most challenging projects, the whole team jumps in to find the customer a great solution. There is a genuine passion for customers success and support. I really appreciate the team’s ability to create innovative systems that can be customised to solve any challenge. The mix of 7thSense media servers, Medialon show control solutions, and Juggler pixel processors is a combination that is truly unique in the industry. I am really looking forward to creating some amazing systems with this great technology and inspired team!”
John Higgins, Director of Product Development at 7thSense adds, “We are very excited to bring Erik on board with his vast show experience, knowledge of the industry, and history with hardware-based pixel processing technologies. Juggler, like all of our products, is very flexible, but adds the additional performance of a hardware-based processing pipeline. The core product can be tailored as required to create a bespoke offering for our customer’s projects. Erik is a great addition to our growing team and will be invaluable in ensuring that we maintain our focus on providing the most innovative products to the most exciting projects.”
As a stand-alone product, or an extension to the capabilities of the 7thSense GPU-based Media Servers, Juggler’s hardware based processing provides ultra-low latency scaling, cropping, conversion, warping, and pixel mapping.
