Viewster has opened an office in Los Angeles to drive its strategic growth and revenue initiatives, including a premium streaming online video offering.

Japanese entertainment industry veteran Rob Pereyda will lead the development work to drive Viewster's position in North America in genre content, including anime, sci-fi, horror and gaming.

"Los Angeles is not only the heart of the global entertainment industry, it is the entry point for anime and related genre content into America," said Viewster CEO and co-founder Kai Henniges. "Our new team, led by Rob, will be central to Viewster's innovation, both crafting and driving our new products and services."
