About Eric Diez:
Eric Diez joined Hudson MX following a nineteen-year tenure with Turner Broadcasting. Born into an engineering family, Eric attended Auburn University where he earned both his B.S and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering specializing in numerical analysis, finite element analysis and digital image processing. From the start of his career with the Systems Technology Division of IBM in Austin, Texas in 1985, Eric was part of a new wave of engineers who had strong computer skills from day one. After five years as an engineer developing machine vision solutions, Eric left IBM and joined KnowledgeWare, a company founded by NFL legend Fran Tarkenton in Atlanta. While with KnowledgeWare, Eric developed and maintained CASE Tools that allowed large corporate IT departments to model and build enterprise software applications. In 1999, he joined Internet consulting shop iXL as a UML Analyst and was soon promoted to Technical Manager leading a team of backend developers responsible for building client E-Commerce websites. In 2000, Eric began his work with Turner Broadcasting, where he built a number of web based personalized gaming sites and content management systems for Cartoon Network and Turner Entertainment. In 2003, he began his work on Turner’s GameTap -- the online subscription streaming service that supported more than a thousand nostalgic arcade and console classic video games -- as Co-Patent Holder and Head of Engineering. In 2007, he began work at CNN where he led a team that developed iReport.com, CNN's first User Generated Content citizen journalism website. In 2009 Eric transitioned to the Core Services team at Turner where he led the development of a bespoke content management system for cnn.com, video management and transcoding services, and a flexible Core Video Player (CVP) framework that could be easily customized and integrated with ad platforms and Comscore/Nielsen measurement services.
