News Image
Virgin TV's Director of Digital Entertainment Product Development, Louise Fussell, and Dolby Laboratories' Director of Imaging Standards and Technology, Simon Gauntlett have been appointed to the DTG Council - the governing body of the DTG, the UK's unique self-funded collaboration centre for innovation in digital media technology.

Louise joined Virgin's Customer Experience team in 2009 as Virgin selected the TiVo middleware platform to replace its legacy TV platform, moving into the Digital Entertainment product management team in 2010. Louise's work has covered the full product lifecycle from initial localisation and development to product launch, in-life operation and the creation of a roadmap for future developments. Louise was previously Head of TV Development at Tiscali and Sky's Head of Business Analysis.

In his current role as Director of Imaging Standards and Technology at Dolby Laboratories, Simon is the European representative for Dolby Laboratories' Office of the CTO, helping to develop and implement imaging technologies for Dolby. Formerly CTO at the DTG for a decade, Simon also spent seven years in the BBC's Research and Development department.

Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG said: "With a wealth of experience, both Simon and Louise are expertly placed to take on their role on the DTG Council. Their extensive knowledge, gained in organisations as diverse as the BBC, Virgin Media, Sky and Dolby, will make an invaluable contribution to collaborative industry debate at the DTG."
