Prime Focus Appoints New COO

Global digital content services group Prime Focus Technologies has named Ganesh Sankaran as Chief Operating Officer.
Based in Bangalore and reporting to Prime Focus Technologies Founder, President and CEO Ramki Sankaranarayanan, Ganesh will oversee R&D, technology development and service delivery operations for all PFT's worldwide locations. He'll also help scale the operation, enhance product and service lines as well as build deeper relationships with clients.
As Co-Founder and Vice President, Ganesh has been behind a number of the company's most impressive achievements including the development of CLEAR, the world's first 'hybrid cloud' multi-platform content operations solution.
He was also involved in building CLEAR live which enables delivery of video on demand packages from live video feeds to web and mobile in seconds and minutes - the process used during IPL 2010 tournament.
Ramki Sankaranarayanan, PFT Founder, President and CEO, said: "Ganesh's leadership has shaped the CLEAR platform from the very start. Having built a platform to suit every content owner's needs, in this new role Ganesh will lead the effort of working closely with clients and help to transform their content operations to drive multi-platform opportunities. I'm looking forward to working more closely with him to help PFT reach some exciting goals during the coming years."
Ganesh said: "PFT is a very forward thinking and ambitious company. Our vision from the very beginning has been to build a platform which is unmatched. What we have today is a very complete and yet flexible platform to meet the content and related workflow requirements of the media industry.
"As multi-platform is becoming the focus for content owners worldwide, CLEAR's completely geared to handle the related content operations, from production to delivery and preservation. I'm extremely excited about the way forward."
Prime Focus Technologies will be exhibiting at IBC 2010 and demonstrating CLEAR, the world's first hybrid cloud based multi-platform content operations solution at its Stand C.36 in Hall 13.
