| 14 June 2014
4K specialist NanoTech Entertainment has added Hollywood innovator Rod Riegel to its Content Advisory Board. Riegel will provide strategic guidance to NanoTech on its content acquisition partnerships as the company continues to build its library, which it offers via its UltraFlix dedicated 4K channel.
Riegel’s career began with Turner Broadcasting on the marketing side of the business. Eventually he moved to 20th Century Fox, where he moved into the position of senior vice president of marketing and strategic affairs for the company’s global entertainment businesses. After his 15-year stint with FOX, he moved to the Sony Pictures Studio Lot as part of the joint venture with Discovery Communications and IMAX Corporation. Riegel now serves as vice president of global market development and strategy for the joint venture’s 3D channel and UHD production studio businesses.
“UltraFlix is poised to become a key driver of next-generation entertainment distribution services for Ultra HD programming - a revolutionary format destined to become the de-facto standard for content consumption,” said Riegel. “I’m thrilled to join NanoTech’s advisory team, and look forward to helping the company maximize their efforts in the 4K content space and deliver on the mandate to pioneer ‘The Future of Television.’”
“We are privileged to have Rod joining our team,” added Alan Stone, COO of NanoTech. “He has a unique insight into the changing landscape of digital video content, and has been at the forefront of the 4K movement. Assembling a world class team of Hollywood experts is helping us elevate and expand our brand that will help us to exceed the goals that we have set for our media division and the company overall.”
