Dr. Dane Kottke has been elevated from Director of Software Development to Chief Product Development Officer at EuclidIQ, a provider of video compression products that mimic the human visual system.
Dr. Kottke will now oversee the development of all EuclidIQ products, including video algorithm design and optimization, video codec architectures, quality control, and software APIs for video coding.
Dr. Kottke joined EuclidIQ in 2013. His resumé also includes a stint at Avid, where he initiated and oversaw the development of video and audio codecs, including the design and specification of DNxHD, as well as implementations for H.264, JPEG-2000, MPEG-2, and VC-1.
Prior to Avid, Dr. Kottke worked in the Signal Processing Center of Technology at Lockheed Martin.
“With his deep understanding of video codecs and algorithm design, Dane has been a driving force in our product development efforts these last three years,” said Richard Wingard, co-founder and CEO of EuclidIQ. “As we ramp up for the next stage in our growth and bring new products to market, he is ideally suited to spearhead the development of our next generation products.”
EuclidIQ is headquartered in Concord, Mass.
