San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 09, 2014

Two experienced industry leaders have recently joined the advisory board of Trusight, Inc., a leading provider of innovative digital content technology.

Vincent Laforet, DGA director and DP, and Chris Carey, executive director of product development for Verizon Digital Media Services, have joined the company’s advisory board.

Vincent is a three-time winner at the prestigious 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival and a director and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer known for his forward-thinking approach to image making and storytelling. In 2005, American Photo named him one of the ‘100 Most Influential People in Photography’, and his work has been recognized around the world.

“Trusight has been pushing the envelope in terms of maximizing the processing and the quality of imagery to levels seldom seen before," said Laforet.

Added Brian Hofstetter, vice president of marketing for Trusight, “We’re excited to have someone with Vincent’s exceptional talent and experience assisting our involvement with Hollywood content producers and distributors.”

Chris Carey has more than 30 years in the film and media industry and has worked at Paramount Pictures, where he was a key leader of the strategic and technology drivers of Hollywood's digital revolution. Previously, he worked at Technicolor as the chief technology and marketing officer as well as spending 17 years at Walt Disney Studios in leadership roles.

“Chris’s background in the industry is outstanding and we are thrilled to have someone on our advisory board with Chris’s experience and insight into the key players and market,” said Scott Slater, Trusight’s founder and chief executive officer.

Trusight is raising the bar for improved movie viewing and bandwidth reduction using its processing technology to deliver better image quality. The company’s innovative technique enhances the performance of power management technology today by delivering the portable battery capability most original equipment manufacturers hope to have perhaps seven years from now.

In the mobile world of devices, Trusight’s solution directly benefits consumers with simple-to-use applications that enhance their daily lives in a very obvious and direct way – more power means more time and greater utility from providers who deliver this benefit.

“Trusight processing is the most lightweight visual content optimizing solution available today. It provides more information with fewer bits, less disruptive power savings and greater clarity and intelligibility for delivery of next-generation content,” said Hofstetter.

Other members of the advisory board are Jon Peddie, a leading industry analyst for graphic and image processing and founder of Jon Peddie Research; Tom Kosnik, professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Stanford’s Technology Venture Program; and Ted Vucurevich, former chief technology officer of Cadence and founder of Enconcert.
